Interest in books about 5.45, 5.56, 7.62, 7.92, .303, .30-06

Hello guys,

I am interested into specialized books which particularize cartridges into the following calibers: 5.45x39, 5.56x45, 7.62x39, 7.62x54R, 7.62x51, 7.92x33 Kurz, 7.92x57 Mauser, 12.7x108, 14.5x114, .303 British, .30-06 Springfield, .338 Lapua Magnum, .50 BMG.

And also, a huge interest about the 7.65x25mm Borchardt and its derivatives (like 7.63mm Mauser, 7.62mm Tokarev, 7.65mm Parabellum, 9mm Parabellum…) and the 6.5mm cartridges used in old military rifles (like 6.5 Arisaka, 6.5 Carcano, 6.5 Mannlicher, 6.5 Swedish…).

Thanks to anyone devoted to give me any links to those books.


If you are an IAA member, Chris Punnett’s excellent 30-06 book is available for download in pdf format in the members only section. Others still in print include:

Geremy Chubbuck’s three books on 7.9x57 mauser
John Green’s new book on Australian 7.62mm NATO

The remainder that I have are all out of print and I have managed to pick up second hand. You often have to wait a while to find them at a reasonable price. If you do a search for books you will find a number of posts, as it is a very popular topic.

Books covering the likes of the .303" & Kent’s 7.9x57 plus some other case types are available but not on-line, so not free but in actual book form.
Ron Fuch’s 5.56x45 / .223 & Cal. .50 are on-line but I don’t have the link at hand.
A search of threads here will find it.

Here’s a good start:

Recently unemployed, so I am posting several books for sale tomorrow in IAA’s “For Sale” forum.
