Good information for the reloading wildcatter. The book contains something like 900+ cartridges, both common and wildcat, with specific dimensions and steps to creating the cartridge from others.

The book also describes, some in detail and some briefly, steps needed to work brass to meet design specifications.

Only complaint is the unusual arrangement of the cartridges. Normally, manuals arrange the cartridges by caliber and then by volume. In this book they are arranged by caliber number (i.e. .300 Weatherby comes before .308 Winchester) and then alphabetically (i.e. .300 Weatherby comes before .300 Winchester). Other than this, I found the book to be exactly what I needed in my quest for a non-belted magnum, .30 caliber, with a longer neck than a .300 Winchester, and better efficiency than the Weatherby. Good reading.
