This b&w 160-page paperback measuring 6"x9" sports 25 illustrations. The paper is fair quality and the jacket reasonably, but not sufficiently, durable for a book that will most probably be handled quite a lot as the BP reloader learns his accuracy loading ropes. The text is large and reads easily. The book itself takes the reader a step beyond the mere loading of black powder cartridges as it focuses on accuracy and the target range. Mr. Matthews makes the point that black powder rifles and cartridges are way more accurate than expected and normally more accurate than the person who shoots them, so one should not have modest expectations. The book itself is divided into 16 chapters such as: What is MOA?, Practice with BP arms, Controlling recoil (and the effect of low velocites), Detail shrinks groups, Primer and flash hole sizes, Getting started, Cleaning BP rifles, Accuracy, Gadgets, Record keeping, Moulds, Bullet Types and stuff such as mirage and the like.

Full of details information, whys and wherefores for BP cartridge shooting. Particuarly liked the information on bullet diameter, but there was much more on bullet selection. A lot of detail on how you get to be a top silhouette shooter.
This book is an excellent reminder of all the "little" things to be done, which add up to more hits down range. Many of the hints are "common sence" but, reading them in the format presented if very helpful. It has already helped me increase my silhouette score. I recommend this to anyone interested in hitting more targets.
