A great place to start learning about BP revolver cartridges

I thoroughly enjoyed reading the history of these old cartridges. The performance of the old firearms was an education.
I respect Mr. Venturino knowledge on the subject matter and his reloading ability. His handloads recipe for the 45 Colt gave me a good starting point and saved me a lot of time and $ on finding the best load for my gun.
A GREAT PIECE OF WORK

Received the book as a birthday present. I enjoy reading Mike' s monthly columns and thought it would be nice to have the collection. It's a great piece of work. I was not disappointed.
