"Ammo & Ballistics 5" is the fifth revise of a book that has become invaluable, and it contains so much data that just picking it up causes my cerebral cortex to swell from info-bloat. Compiled by Bob Forker, it contains general information on exterior ballistics, plus 2,400 tables with ballistic data for over 169 cartridges ranging from the .17 Mach 2 to the .700 Nitro Express. These tables include the dope on velocity, energy, wind drift, bullet drop, and ballistic coefficients up to 1,000 yards. The manufacturers covered run from A-Square to Winchester, with all stops in between. If it ain't in here, it probably hasn't been designed yet. Softcover, illustrated, 518 pps., $26.95.
