Frank Barnes (1918-1992) began collecting information on handgun cartridges at the early age of 12, thanks to his father who was a police officer. Most people don't know that Frank began a career in law enforcement as a collegiate professor after receiving his master's degree. He was also a pilot, a racecar driver and had a love for Geology. He soon began to experiment with different cartridges and decided to publish a manual for all of them. Cartridges of the World was first published in 1965. It's lived through 10 editions and can be found on most reloader's bookshelves today. Even though Frank passed away many years ago, his dream of publishing the best book for all calibers lives on.
