This was a 12 page 'article', though it's a short 12 pages. Talks primarily about shooting centerfire black-powder cartridges.
Includes links to a couple sites that sell cartridges. Mentions some powders, including black powder, and black powder substitutes Pyrodex, Cleanshot, and Blackhorn 209. Does not include 777. Includes almost nothing on specific guns, and nothing on muzzle loaders, or on rimfires. Since I shoot rimfires, it was disappointing.
Mentions specific loads the author has shot, with bullet and powder weights. Mentions various historical calibers for their man-stopping ability. Last two or three pages (depending on your reader) are a list of some blackpowder calibers (14), with loads and comments on accuracy or speed (e.g. 'slow', or 'accurate').
I hadn't expected this to be so short. It's cheap, so you don't waste a lot of money, but you will probably read it once, and that's it.
