40 years experience reloading. Still enjoy reviewing the basics. This book is a good review and learning tool for the novice and experienced alike. Recommended reading for everyone involved in reloading ammunition.

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.

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.. Pros: Lots of good information Cons: Some inconsistancy with other sources

This is one of the exhaustive reference resources for any library. Although every reference book has its limits, with new criteria being developed, it will continue to be the reliable source everyone has come to expect. I hope a new, updated version is in the making, or at least a suppliment to the recent discoveries, so that our reloading libraries can be complete to the present time. John

I was a little dissappointed that the latest version of the Lyman Loading Manual does not have loads for some of the more exotic cartridges that have come into favor. Though I would not expect them to have exotic wildcats, ones that have become not only more common, but that are offered as factory rounds like the 6.5x47, 6mmBR and 6.5x284 are all noticably missing. Still a great reference for the old tried and true calibers, but one must remember that the .25-06 and .22-250 where once Wildcats as were many other drivations of the .308 and .30-06 case.

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. Pros: points out most accuate loads Cons: missing some powders/bullets ect.

If you are new to reloading this is a must have handbook Pros: The perfect general data book Cons: Too much on seldom used cartridges makes for an oversized handbook
