Bibliography of books on Cartridges or Ammunition

Compiled by Jonathan Uhlman(updated December 2008)

An explanatory note:

This bibliography for the most part focuses upon ‘Primarily Cartridge Oriented’ works, and leaves many works where Cartridges are secondary or tertiary to the work off the list. No attempt made to list each edition of a work, such as “Cartridges of the World”. Instead the last known, or the most commonly available edition is usually listed, to assist persons in finding a copy. Some company histories are included, to simply make persons aware of what exists.

Some reloading manuals (see ‘Reloading Manuals’) are included, but by no means has any attempt been made to list them all. Some such as Lapua or A-Squares contain valuable information upon the companies, and upon their products, and are also listed under the authors name. Many Government publications will be listed under headings such as “U.S. Government Publications”, or “H.M.S.O” (for British Government publications).

Many company catalogues are not listed, due to the sheer volume. However, some that contain histories etc., are usually listed under the companies name.

Suggestions for additions are most welcome.
