  • "The increased use of full loads in rifles and the rather widespread use of wildcats, the arms and ammunition for which are highly individualized, coupled with a persistent but fallacious belief that a fixed weight of powder will perform the same in all standardized arms of the same caliber, reflects the need for a book that is educational rather than merely informative. This book is an attempt,..to provide such a work and to give reloaders something that will enable them to stand on their own feet and work out their own indifidual reloading problems."
  • "In order to establish a full charge for any arm, three things are essential; a working understanding of ignition; a knowledge of combustion; and some means whereby the reloader can make a reasonably close estimate of whether the pressures his loads are developing are within safe limits."
