Just received my mail and in it, a copy of Townsend Whelen's "The American Rifle". 1st Ed!

Should be interesting reading. Shows a picture of Dr. Mann's 200 yard (!) covered (!!) rifle range. Nice little house to load and shoot from as well. WOW! Wish I had one.

Discusses various cartridges of the time period in which the book was written and a lot of time is given to the service rifles and their cartridges.

Of course, I haven't read it yet, but it won't be long until I've gone through it a couple of times.
