Ken Water's Notebook- "Best Wishes for Good Shooting" 1968-1989


Product Description

Today’'s best authority on reloading and firearms reveals his unfathomable knowledge through this chronological catalog of letters. In the tradition of other great shooters’ notebooks, this text of letters contains load tables, little known facts, history, esoteric details and Ken’s personal recommendations to various questions and concerns.

If you enjoy finding little nuggets of golden information on handloading or guns, you will be fascinated on your journey through these letters that are jammed with information, not chit-chat. The load tables are well worth the purchase and all information has never been published before. Ken was prolific in his correspondence with extensive details. None of these letters ever appeared in Rifle or Handloader magazines; it is all new material from the author. This is a large book presented in the original letter format. Those who know Ken will love this new book, and those not familiar will be amazed at the depth of his knowledge and straightforward, easy-to-understand writing style.
