    I just picked up a copy and it really has some neat info. Ballistics, drop, ballistic coefficients, etc. on most commercially loaded ammo for rifle and pistol. For me the neat part was all the info on the rimfire cartridges. It even includes the .22 rimfire shotshells stating one contains 25 #12 shot (about like dust!) and has a muzzle velocity of 1000 fps. Subsonics, hypervelocity rounds, etc. is all included. I never realized that the .22 short nominally has the same MV as the long rifle, just a lighter bullet. Some of my new late night reading.:D
