    I'm looking for a good reloading book. I have the Lyman 498th edition and I've got the ABC's of reloading.

    What I'm NOT looking for is another book filled with load data...I want knowledge. I want the HOW of doing things. What is the best way to prep brass, how do you measure the best OAL for your particular chamber, what are the differences in case volume between brass manufacturers, how do you fireform brass, things of this nature. I'm very much interested in the process and the technical side of things.

    I've only got two rifles...I don't need more books with data on 200 calibers that I'll never reload. The Lyman book is 464 pages long and only the first 110 pages or so are really a reloading book...the rest is just tables of data.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Modern Handloading by George C. Nonte Jr. was my starting point. It is very old by todays standards. But I still like to read through it every couple years.

    You could always drive to RC's home, and when he answers the door yell, "Dad !! I'm home !!"

    Now that would be an education!

    Especially if either one looked like Sidney Poitier.
