He was born in Chicago, June 25, 1918. He began collecting cartridge data about age 12, which would be about 1930. Before he began to write of guns and ammunition, he made a living as a geologist-engineer and spent a lot of time in the field in the West and Southwest. He did not “go hunting,” he said many times, because he was already there. This experience made Barnes a practical hunter/rifleman, entitled to his opinions on rifles and shotguns and their cartridges. Barnes came to the same sort of competence with handguns even earlier; his father was a police officer who let his son shoot his sidearms if he kept them clean.
That is one reason some cartridges do not follow in normal caliber designation in the dimensional tables. There are others. The second figure, if there is one, is usually some distinguishing feature such as case length or powder charge. Cartridges of European origin are, almost without exception, designated in metric units by caliber and case length. Obsolete American cartridges, or any that have a blackpowder origin, are designated by caliber and powder charge weight, or caliber-powder/charge-bullet weight (the last two in grain weight).
There is really not much that can be done in the area of, say, obsolete cartridges, because nothing changes except that occasionally one or two of the old-timers will be reintroduced. This requires moving such cartridges back into the chapter covering modern cartridges, or, on the other hand, some commercially loaded number will be discontinued and relegated to the obsolete designation. Such changes are updated in this next edition. We have retained the encyclopedic reference format and are continuing to present the information from a shooter’s and hunter’s point of view.
