found a great reloading book

They opened a brand spanking new 100.000 sq foot Cabala's last week here in the upstate 20 miles from my compound. Well anyhoo while browsing around looking for powder (fat chance) I came across these caliber specific loading manuals. They are published by Loadbooks USA, inc. It covers just about all bullet and powder manufactures. Seems to be current(2011) It gives loading info. by bullit mfgr. and by powder mfg. In the back it gives a burn rate table +p info. This is strictly a recipe book with 50 pages of info. I picked up the .38 spec. and the 357 Mag. They are only $6.99 each so you will not have to buy a book with calibers you will never use. check out the web site loadbooks.com

Loadbooks are a great place to start.
$25 a year to keep The High Road on line AND block adds? Bargain!

Those little one caliber one book are handy references for the hand loader. They keep them updated too as reloading components change. Note in the below image the 30-06 book on the left touts 2,138 Proven Loads, 83 Various Bullets and 59 Different Powders. That book was a 1990 copy write. The book on the right is a 1993 copy write and touts 2,163 Loads, 85 Bullets and 52 Powders so they do keep them current with updates. They have been getting published for decades and again are handy little reference books.

I really like the two that I have, 45-70 and 308. I bought the 308 at a gun show several years ago. I will likely get an updated one as well as one for my other calibers I have. Very handy to have, especially if you cast.

Regardless of the date inside the cover?

They are still just reprints of old publicly available data the powder & bullet manufacturing people who did the pressure testing no longer have copyrights on.

It's old data.
Untested recently data.
And contains no data for all the newer powders available today.

And you can get the same data free with a little internet browsing in all the right places.

Don't put all your eggs in one basket.
Or all your primers in a glass jar!

Ya but this book does not require the internet. 6-8 bucks and it's all at your finger tips. Just turn the page.
