Does anyone have an extra book laying around? I am having a hard time locating it and would LOVE to start reloading.

Thanks

Try Amazon. Pretty easy to get them over there.

Kelly, that book is not required reading to start reloading. If you insist, get it from your public library.

You should definitely buy and own at least a couple of loading manuals -- I recommend Speer and Lyman.

Kelly, that book is not required reading to start reloading.This is a true statement. However, studying The ABC's will save you from a LOT of having to re-invent the wheel. Wish it had been around back when I started reloading. It contains a ton of basic how-to information, as well as info beyond the basics. Belongs on every reloader's bookshelf, well thumbed, IMHO.

:DDirections??? We're men! We don't need no stinkin' directions!!!:D

Amazon is out of stock, all my stores are out of stock. You can buy it on EBAY for about $90 (yea a little to much).

I am considering reloading and would like to start with this book. However, is there a book that would teach me start to finish as well as make recommendations on equipment?

Thanks

The ABCs of reloading is an entertaining read with a lot of tips and tricks, but the Lyman reloading manual a better nuts and bolts textbook IMO.

If not available locally nor on the I'net, you can order direct from the publisher, Krause Publishing, www.krause.com

ETA--Just checked Krause's website, and The ABC's is not presently available from there. (Tho' they do have 9 pages of firearm & knife related books!) My spies @ Krause tell me that a new edition, the 8th, is due out "early this year," and they must be between editions at the moment.

Anyhow, keep an eye on Krause's website, and surely when they have some of the new edition it'll be there.
