Just received my copy, and did a quick perusal of the contents. It appears to be one of those books I'll spend a lot of time with!
Thanks Randy!

Awesome book, Randy.  I can't wait for the sequel, Schuetzen; the rest of the story  You could publish all the details that could not fit in this one   Grin

The thought of a second volume has occurred to me but I will wait to see how this book is received before I consider launching into another 5-year project of producing another volume.

The book arrived today.
I have not read it yet (obviously) but I did a "speed read " of the chapters and illustrations.  Wow! The illustrations are very good and depict the finer details of loading and overall subject mater well. 
This will be a good read and reference.

See Tom Rowe's table. He will have a supply of my new book.
While you are there, check out Tom's new book on American Rifle Sights. It's well worth adding to your library.

Thanks Randy

Randy: my copy has safely sailed across the ocean and arrived to a loving home in Ol' Europe.
Thank you very much. I've only had time to flip through, but it seems to be a very valuable addition to my book stack (as is "the beginner's guide to paper patched bullets")

Mine arrived and it certainly lives up to its billing. I really like the illustrations and all of the data about the old shoots. Your careful research stands out. Well done, Randy.
