UPDATED: This week’s randomly selected winner was Scott!!
Remember Game Trails Online gives away something new every week!
This week we’re giving away something a book tailor made for hunters, shooters, and collectors: AMMO & BALLISTICS 5 by Robert Forker.
I have to say that I am in no way an expert on ammunition or what it does (It goes bang and kills stuff – the end as far as I’m concerned) but this book easily explains for every bullet known to man does and how it does it. Think of it as Ammo & Ballistics for Dummies. It’s that easy…and that informative.
Now, if you want to win this bad boy all you have to do is comment below. Anything! Comment “Hello” or “I want this book.” Anything enters you for a chance to win this tome of bullet magnificence!
