If I may make a suggestion. Get copies of both volumes of HWS and ID as many as you can. Then, organize those that you cannot ID, by caliber, type, and weight. Then you can probably get a lot more help from Form members.

Just my opinion.

I concur with Ray. I have volume II for sale for $90 including shipping in the US. Dust jacket has 3 minor inside taped tears, but book is like new with no penciling or stains. Yes know I should not try to sell something here, but I am actually trying to help, as I doubt you will find one in this condition for less.
