Ammo & Ballistics, 4th edition
By Robert Forker
Since its launch in 2000, this book has gone through three updated editions and too many printings to count. Now in its fourth and, yet again, completely updated edition, it is more than ever the very necessary companion when shooting at the range or in the field.
Robert Forker has spent countless hours calculating the exact ballistics for all major factory-loaded ammo out to 1,000 yards, with the result that nearly 50 percent of the tables were revised and updated since the last edition. Whether you are taking the shot of a lifetime at a huge elk or simply trying to hit a 6-inch gong at 700 yards at the range, you need to know how much your bullet drops and how it is influenced by the wind. This book has all that as well as a listing of Taylor's KO tables and information on energy and ballistic coefficients.
The book lists 173 different calibers and over 2,400 different loads—from the .17 Mach 2 rimfire to the .700 Nitro Express. The following manufacturers are included: A-Square, Aguila, Black Hills, CCI/Speer, Cor-Bon Bullet, Dakota Arms, Eley Ltd., Federal Cartridge, Fiocchi, Nosler, Hornady, Patria Lapua Oy, Lazzeroni, Kynoch (Kynamco Ltd.), MagTech, Norma, PMC (Eldorado Cartridge Corp.), Remington, Dynamit Nobel-RWS Inc., Sellier and Bellot, Ultramax, Weatherby, and Winchester. This massive reference work is a must for all serious shooters and hunters
