An excellent reference piece. While there is the ocassional mistake or ommission the book is updated periodically. It can be used for reference, research or just general knowledge. My copy is now eight years old and getting pretty worn around the edges. I am constantly taking it on and off the shelf. I guess I'm going to have to get the new edition. Can't recommend it enough.

An excellent summary of not only the popular cartridges we're used to (9mm Luger, 223 Remington, etc.), but also the fascinating rare, outdated, and "wildcat" cartridges that have existed over time.
More than just a list, this book contains the history and pros/cons for each cartridge. Surprisingly readable.

Probably the single most readable reference book I've found to date. Found myself laughing outloud with some of the write-ups.
