|Thanks Denis! I was looking at that the other day but put off buying it because I was saving some money for vacation. Another good book is "Understanding Firearm Ballistics" by Rinker.|
I have the Rinker book as well. It's an entertaining read, but a little awkward in spots.
I also have Ballistic Science for the Law Enforcement Officer
, which was written by C.G. Wilber (who was my major professor when I earned my M.S. degree.)
All of them are excellent resources, but I'd have to give the nod to Hatcher for its sheer scope. I took courses in physics and never could quite get the concept of orbital velocity and escape velocity, but when I read Hatcher's explanation the light came on. Of course I'm approaching 40 years since I took college physics, and I might have learned something in the meantime...
