Just wondering if anyone else has a copy of Bob Hagel's "Game Loads and Practical Ballistics for the American Hunter"?

Anyone else read it so many times they have about worn out the binding?? :)

Not really a data handbook. He lists some loads but focuses more on the "theory" behind applying those ballistics in the field. Where to aim in different situations, how to sight in to maximize range/minimize hold over guessing. Breaks it down into Varmint, Varmint/Game and Big Game groups. Some technical stuff but written in a very easy reading manner from and experience based point of view. I really just really enjoyed reading and re-reading it over the years.
