Manuel's give more than just data,they tell you step by step, how and why

Re: Helping a beginner

I use Lyman and Nosler and numerous websites to compliment/augment them. I also have a video from RCBS ... IIRC, it cost me $10.

Pay special attention to the safety aspect ... there is no substitute for safety, esp. on something that goes kaboom - safety, safety, safety ...

Good luck and enjoy!

Re: Helping a beginner

Get the manuals for the different brands of bullets you plan on loading with. For example. If you plan on shooting Nosler & Hornady, get the newest Nosler and Hornady manuals. If you plan on shooting Bergers down the line, get a Berger manual when you do. If you plan on shooting Sierra's....Get a Sierra manual.

I currently have the newest Nosler (7) manual, and the newest Hornady, since those are the 2 main brands of bullets I shoot. Soon will be a Berger manual.
