Thread: Christmas Book Ideas...

    Christmas Book Ideas...

    Evening all,

    With it being Christmas, I am looking for a good book that my lovely father can give me.

    Keen to further my knowledge on ballistics, cartridges etc. I know a bit about all the mainstream rounds (.243, .308, .30-06, 270) but very little about what I consider the less common calibres (7mm-08, 6.5x47, .260, 6.5-284).

    Something with good information but not such heavy going that I will never open again. Conversely, not a reloading manual specifically.

    Any suggestions?

    Someone once mentioned Ken Waters – Pet Loads. Looks to be the kind of thing I’m after….

    May I in all seriousness suggest your Father is tasked with tracking down a re-print of "Hunting With The Twenty-Two" by Charles Landis.

    On the face of it such may appear an odd and outdated suggestion but if you love hunting and rifles then this is a book you'll jump back into time, and time again. The perfect antidote in fact to some of the more depressing and self-serving posts to be encountered on this site.

    Cheers

    This needs a 'bump' as I'm sure 2428 Miles won't mind being baught 2 books!

    The Landis re-print sadly doesn’t come with the original dust jacket:
