Thanks for the tip Parman. I just ordered mine. The Lyman 49th has been my favorite manual since it initially came out. The 48th before that....and so on. I think the oldest one I have is the 45th edition.

Is it just a reprint of the 49th but with those new calibers added? I'd be inclined to get it if it had more powders listed with the bullet weights/types. Especially the relatively new ones like BE-86.

Owning the latest edition of any handbook you use is a good idea. If there were any errors in the previous editions they are normally corrected in the latest edition.

Thank you. I'm going to wait for the hard cover. I got the hard cover 49th Edition and I'm glad I did.

The hardcover is OOS at Midsouth. Too bad. I use my 49th edition so much it is coming apart.
