New to Reloading/Hand-loading... ...VERY "new", as in NO equipment yet except I jumped on 250 Starline Brass .458 SOCOM cases...hard to get, hard to get ammo & pricey. So am compiling "WEB_Wisdom" on this serious subject/endeavor . I wanna be safe, competent & creative... Got the skinny on most of the hardware "pros & cons" between types & brands ...not looking for that in this thread. What I am looking for is ; ...CONSENSUS on the TOP 5 or so Reloading/Hand-loading Load DATA Books or Manuals, AND... ...the Reasons "why" you feel they are very good and/or complete? So not just cause you own one...tell me if you think in hindsight, you made a mistake with what you have...an KNOW, that there is something better, please... Thanks!
