This book is very well written and contains a lot of technical information about the workings of blackpowder firearms. The author goes into great detail about the particular types of weapons and their necessities. I believe that this is probably a book that is better suited for a beginner to intermediate level blackpowder fanatic. Although it may be a good book to have as a reference for those more involved. The index of weapons in the second half of the book is not very extensive but then again there are so many different manufacturers of blackpowder weapons and many more models and versions. This nice part about this index is the included recommendations for loads for that weapon and its recommended usage. One thing to watch for - the two books that I have are both missing a page, somewhere around page number 36. I wrote to the company stating this problem and they sent me a new book. This one also had the same problem so I wrote back. This time they sent a copy of that particular page. Happy reading to you.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
