THIRD EDITION. The book for every new as well as experienced metallic cartridge reloader. This edition is expanded to 144 pages and 107 photos covering necessary and optional equipment, components, safety, testing, and more. Entire chapters on equipment and on each component. What steps are mandatory and what are optional. A complete chapter just about crimping, one of the most confusing areas especially for new reloaders. Entire chapters on lubes, manuals, presses, bullets, powder, primers, cases, etc. Where conventional manuals give you sentences or paragraphs, this book gives you entire chapters! Twenty-two in all, with greater detail than any book on the subject - bar none!
The ONLY reloading book with an entire chapter on MISTAKES! Includes photographs of what happens to body parts when someone breaks a cardinal rule!
For the experienced reloader, this book will validate your practices, explain steps you questioned, give you suggestions for better ways of getting better results.
For those new to reloading, learn how to safely and accurately measure powder to 1/70,000th of a pound. What equipment you need to get started. How to select safe starting loads. How to select and prep components. Step-by-step guidance on loading your first cartridges. An entire chapter is dedicated to safely testing your new loads at the range, checking for consistency and especially bullet creep - the most important indicator of whether or not your crimp is correct. There are extensive safety tips and warnings, including photos, that go WAY beyond what anyone else has ever been willing to publish!
