From the introduction: The original philosophy, worked out by myself and the late John T. Amber (the original editor) was to assemble a practical and useful book that would appeal to as broad a spectrum of the shooting fraternity as possible. The 10th edition carries on in the same tradition as the previous editions in offering both something new as well as retaining old data that is either useful or of general interest.
The information contained in the book it great and worth while for anyone looking for old cartridges. The ones I were looking for from WWI and WWII were found, now I have some background of there make up. Good book.
