I’m just about finished my editing contribution to the 13th Edition of Cartridges of the World. 50 new (factory and wildcat) cartridges will be featured in the new volume. Some are pretty darn cool and some are, well, kinda weird. The new edition will also contain several new informational chapters covering AR cartridges, wildcatting and SAAMI.
Ironically, during the research I ended up creating a new wildcat specifically designed for deer hunting in Indiana where .35 caliber and up rifles are legal as long as the case length is less than 1.8 inches.
Here’s the last chance to get any cool, new wildcat cartridges in this book. Who knows when the 14th Edition will come out. The 13th Edition won’t be available until late summer but until then, here is a look at a few of the cartridges I uncovered ranging from .17 to .51 caliber.
