This is my first reloading manual and I was hoping to get something more complete. There are a lot of loads in the book but missing some of the powder and bullet combinations I was looking at using. However, for the price it is hard not to put this one on your reference shelf.

While it's not a 'great' reloading manual, it is very good. I also use a Lee manual, and between the 2 of them, I get the results I need. I did notice that the Lyman book loads slightly lower on some calibers, than does the Lee book. If you're just starting to reload, this is a must for your library.

As others have said, mostly "old data" but if you need a loading manual, this one is a fair start. Do get the hard cover though,it is a big book and the pages "dog ear" badly.

While I find this to be an excellent source of information on reloading many different types of cartridges, I'm seeing some inconsistancies between specific loads from this source to the others. Not really sure why that is..
