Key features - main screen

Picture shows the menu of the database. Up-to-date cartridge arrangement is set in compliance with the name and is possible to sort it and arrange it according to the cartridge length or bullet diameter. Dimensional characteristics are expressed in figures in millimeters (mm) or in inches (inch). The transition between the two systems is possible „ad hoc“ by pressing the appropriate key.

Picture shows the window of the chosen cartridge. Here you can find its characteristics such as the cartridge name (including historically established synonyms), the shape and dimensions of the cartridge and the brief summary of historical, loading and ballistic details which are connected to each cartridge and not least the graphics inclusive of significant developmental or loading versions. Quantitative characteristics of each cartridge are shown in the Metric System (mm), but one of the functions of this program is their „ad hoc“ conversion into the Anglo-Saxon Linear Measure (inch).

The ammunition database, along to its current considerable volume, is an open and continuously expanding system. Gnoseologically, on the one hand, with increasing number of knowledge and dialectically, on the other hand, with the development of new types of cartridges and their modifications.
Annually the number increases by 20-50. It is never ending work. For solitary amateurs it is sometimes very difficult to keep up with this trend. In addition to that the team work of enthusiasts interested in cartridges studying and collecting offers much easier way of searching, collecting and data processing.
This is the purpose why we appreciate your initiative, comments, advise, help and concern about this work.
