Field & Stream Review
There are books and Internet articles in profusion on this subject, but the ones I’ve seen are oriented toward competitive and tactical riflemen, and not toward hunters, and the authors almost immediately get into Heavy Math, which is about as comprehensible to most people as the workings of a cyclotron...Zwoll has written for hunters and made the subject comprehensible to the math-challenged and his approach is anecdotal. - David E.
