Interesting read, but more than a little dated. The '83 report cites sources dating far back as 1951, and doesn't mention wildcats like the Whelen(standardized in '87). No mention of Nolser, Barnes, etc... just standard off the shelf Win,Rem,and Fed copper lead factory loads of the era. 45/70 was off the shelf BP level loads.
Good reminder of how much better today's hunter has it.
