Besides clear and concise writing that clarifies the complexities of ballistics coefficients and energy versus momentum, this revised edition covers 190 calibers from the .17 Mach 2 to the .700 Nitro Express. It contains information on rifle and handgun calibers, and it covers manufacturer, bullet weight, type, and construction. There are over 1,400 tables with ballistic data for every caliber and every load for all commercially loaded hunting ammunition sold in the United States. Tables include velocity, energy, wind drift, bullet drop, and ballistic coefficient up to 500 yards.

"Know Your Ammo" is designed to show the "best of the best" ballistics and loading data. The manual is also designed to compare the performance and design characteristics of over 200 popular rounds of ammunition based on maximum muzzle velocity. The manual gives an introduction to the following : 1.) The background, notes, assumptions and formulas used when calculating the ballistic characteristics of ammunition. 2.) Individual tables of ammunition characteristics for over 200 calibers or rounds of ammunition. 3.) A Chart of Gun Powder burn rates. 4.) An Overview of Explosives. 5.) Several Emergency and Survival Preparedness GuidesThe Following Characteristics are explained and listed in the manual for ease of comparison between rounds (for example - comparing the Optimum Take-down Weight of a .223 vs. 7.62 x 39 mm):Bullet Weight ( Grains) :Cartridge Charge (Grains) :Muzzle Speed (feet per second) :Actual Chamber Pressure in (CUP's) :Maximum Allowable SAAMI Pressure (CUP's) :Accurate PowderTM Type :Bullet Type (i.e. FMJ, JHP, SWG, etc.) : Maximum Cartridge Length (inches) :Brass Length (inches) :Bullet Length (inches) :Bullet Width (inches) :Muzzle Energy (foot-pounds) :Recoil Impulse I (pound-seconds) :Free Recoil Speed VG (feet per second) :"Kick" - Free Recoil Energy EG (foot-pounds) :Minimum Length of Twist Required for Optimum Stability (inches) :Density of Loading :The Rotational Speed in RPM (Revolutions per second) :Prof. Hunter John Taylor's Knockout Blow :Sectional Density :Editor John Wooter's L-factor :Ballistic Expert Ed Matuna's Optimum Takedown Game Weight (pounds) :Momentum (pounds - feet per second) :Maximum Potential Energy of Ignited Powder (foot-pounds) :Efficiency of Maximum Energy Produced (%) :Average Speed of Bullet in the Barrel (feet per second) :Average Pressure on the Bullet in the Barrel (CUP's) :Average Energy of the Bullet in the Barrel (foot-pounds) :Approximate Ballistic Coefficient :Absolute Effective Range at Sea Level (feet) :Absolute Effective Range with 10 mph Tail Wind (feet) :Representative Weight of Weapon (pounds) :Ratio of Muzzle Energy to Weight of Weapon (%) :Bullet Drop at various ranges :

Even the earliest weapon developers faced the need to understand how and why guns and ammunition work in order to improve their effectiveness. As weapons became more sophisticated, the field of ballistics naturally divided into three main areas of specialization: interior, exterior, and terminal ballistics. Providing unique coverage of all three areas, Ballistics: Theory and Design of Guns and Ammunition offers a seamless presentation of the complex phenomena that occur during the launch, flight, and impact of a projectile. Reader-friendly in style and format, the book explains the fundamental physics, terminology, theory, engineering aspects, and design techniques for each area in gradually increasing detail and complexity. Starting with interior ballistics, the authors examine the analytical and computational tools used to predict a weapon’s behavior in terms of pressure, stress and velocity, demonstrating their applications in ammunition and weapons design. The book continues with coverage of exterior ballistics, exploring the physics behind trajectories, including linear and nonlinear aeroballistics. The final section focuses on the effects of projectile impact, including details on shock physics, shaped charges, penetration, fragmentation, and wound ballistics. Enhanced with insights drawn from the authors’ extensive experience in government laboratories, industry, and academia, Ballistics provides an ideal vehicle for encouraging superior design and innovative applications in the field.

Here's the perfect companion to that most popular starter rifle, the venerable .22. The best isn't always the biggest--and the .22 is not only the perfect first rifle, but also one that many hunters and shooters come back to and use throughout their days afield. Wayne van Zwoll, a longtime expert on the subject, takes experts and beginners alike through the history, variety, and use of the classic .22. He writes appealingly about his first .22, and the ones he bought for later competitive use. He describes hunting with the .22, target shooting, and details the care and upkeep of the weapon. He discusses the evolution of the gun, and the refinements of the ammo that go with it. Included are chapters on: *The .17 *Practical scopes *Squirrel rifles *Supports *Browning *Getting to zero *Winchester *Holding a rifle still *Remington*The sling *Cooper*Prepping for the field *Ruger*A bullet’s way through the wind *Savage*Cleaning *Real gunstocks *Ballistics *Better sights *. . . and more The .22's accuracy, economy, and versatility have made it an all-time best-seller. Now there's a book to go with every one.
