    Hodgdon Manual

    If you are referring to the magazine type manual, I have one and it is very handy. It is only for Hodgdon powders, but it has a wealth of loads for all calibers in hand guns, rifle and shotguns. Not a lot of technical info but definitely worth the price. Besides, you cannot have too many reloading manuals. JoeyT

    I don't have the $6, but I do have the free one. If you don't have them, I'd strongly suggest it. They're not as complete as normal books, but really nice for quick reference.

    I get it every time I see a new one that I don't already own.
    What the heck ? It is just like a magazine. You flip though it, see if there is anything new. Anything you don't already have covered: new powders and what not.

    Another 'ditto' here. It's a good reference (so long as you're using Hodgdon powders) and you can't beat the price.

    I bought it because I specifically use Hodgdon powders. Varget, 4895, 4350, Clays, Titegroup.

    Ditto. Its not my favorite, but its worth the price as another source. It DOES have a LOT of loads in it.

    I use a lot of Hodgdon powders and picked it up in 2003. Haven't picked up the newer ones. I'll wait until this one is dog-eared and falling apart or I get a new cailber or powder not covered in the one I have. Handy refrence, lots of loads. Most of the loads have been retested with the newer and more accurate equipment. Good stuff.
