I buy everyone of the CoTW when they come out but this one had some difficulties. Perhaps it was the printer. It had pages missing and some cartridges left out that are normally there. I was disappointed. I will buy No. 13 when it comes out. Perhaps unless you are a true ammo geek, you won't notice.
