Gun and Ammunition Reference Book Library

I sorted through my personal digital library hard copy of books, and compiled a partial list of links to some of them.
Each link will take you to a page where the book can be downloaded in several formats. (pdf etc)

I will add more links in the future, when/if I find others that are worth adding to the list.
Please let me know if any of the links don’t work.

@69Goat
Your welcome. I had been meaning to post some of those, but just hadn’t ever gotten around to doing it , until now.
I tried to pick ones I thought would be the most useful for everyone.

@everyone
Keep in mind the editions, and varying dates of publication for all of these, when it comes to the reloading and components data.
No doubt there sometimes will be updated, supplemental, or superseded information, that may have not existed at the time of publication, and will need to be taken into account. (new bullet designs, new/discontinued powders, etc)
For other books, the info will always remain the same, and accurate.

Damn! Where were you years ago?
I already own most of these in print.
Lol.
Thanks
I will download several for immediate reference when I’m away from home.

@Biganimal Not really me. Just wasn’t the “Net” years ago. If only there would have been.
This is all from stuff I have accumulated while searching documents etc on other research. Be surprised what all you find in some databases.
I always prefer a print copy of anything, but I thought I would go back through some of my stuff, and find the original links that everyone could use. It’s nice to be able to download a hard copy and print from it.

Internet Archive, where all of these links are, is a non-profit library of millions of free books, movies, software, music, websites, and more. Everyone should search through it further. Here’s the homepage.

Absolutely true. Powder from the 60’s & 70’s is not always the same as today’s powder neither is the load data.
If you use load data from years ago with powder made now you may experience high pressure issues.
