Re: What reloading manual do use?

Barnes + Speer printed books.
Hodgdon - printed off internet.
Berger - printed off internet.

I really do not have a favorite. I like to do alot of reading and research. Most often I will reference all 4 before I start my load development.

It will be interesting to see what others say. I consider myself a novice compared o some others on this web site.

Sierra from a CD (has some oddball rounds and good interactive stuff)
Speer (current and previous edition)
Hornady (current edition)
Nosler (one edition old, like it for listing load densities)
Hodgdon Online (This gets the most use)
Random online suggestions (For some of the hard to find, or recently released)


I'd say I've never started loading without consulting at least two different manuals.

Re: What reloading manual do use?

I dont relegate myself to just one. I use several and compare loads for bullet weights between them all. I kinda come up with a consensus opinion. I will give extra credence to the manual of the bullet I am loading however. I also use online resources as well. The manf.'s are getting wiser and putting a lot of their reloading data on the web now.

Hae found the Nosler manuals to get me started in the right dirrection but have a few others for reference. I'd also ad the Lyman manual to the list as it has a lot of great info in it!

All of them at one time or another.

However, my two "go to" manuals are Sierra and Hodgen as I like the Hodgen line of powders best.

Also like the Norma as I use a lot of MRP and MRP2 at times.
