    I would suggest the Lyman 48th edition. It contains everything you're looking for and has lots of good data for a variety of calibers and bullets.

    Hope this helps.

    I've suggested it in other threads..

    For the begging reloader, I think the SPEER manaul is the best. Step by step with good illustrations. Then add other manuals to the library.

    I vote for the Lyman 48th Edition. You might go up on Lee's website and look at a few of their videos. www.leeprecision.com Look under "Help Videos"

    I have two Speer Manuals - they do a pretty good job.

    This may be a little bit more advanced than what you're asking for, but I think this may be a valuable one to consider:

    "Handlaoding for Competition: Making the Target Bigger" by Glen Zediker

    Also, I know you said you have a Cabela's card, but for informational purposes it's on Midway's site product # 875-590.

    http://www.midwayusa.com/eproductpage.exe/showproduct?saleitemid=875590

    Also, as controversial as it may be, I think the ABC's of reloading is an excellent read.

    My opinion, of course...

    ABC's of reloading is a must read. It has step by stepprocedures and information about history, casting, bench rest shooting, information about how to spoke common problems including excessive pressure, and general review of powders and their use. It does not have any reloading data however. I would recommend it with Lyman for reloading tables.

    After reading in this forum, I bought the Lyman 48th edition and it seems pretty good, but I'm just a beginner too.

    The Lyman 48th edition combined with these forums seem to answer most of the questions. Where the books or manuals are vague, asking questions here is a good way to fill in the blanks.

    Ditto Lyman and Speer manuals. Either or both.

    Lyman 48th. $20 at Sportsman's Warehouse, so you should be able to pick it up with your gift card. Also has some good information on general firearm care.
