Precision reloading

Happy Holiday!

I would like to ask this group to name the best two books on precision reloading that they could suggest. I am particularly interested in any help to reduce standard deviation. Any help would be appreciated.

    Fred Sinclair's book on precision reloading is a must have. The other would either be Ackley's two volume set or Stewart Otteson's book on the bolt action rifle.

    Precision Shooting Reloading Guide: Dave Brennan: 9781931220125: Amazon.com: Books and Fred Sinclair's book.

    A book can help get you oriented but precision reloading is a learned thing, done through experimentation with your own tools and rifle. No one can tell us how to 'turn this to there' in 78 precise steps and you'll walk out with perfect ammo that will shoot in the ones.

    somewhere around the house is a large grey envelope with a copy of Fred's book. He sent it to me about three months before it was published. That book alone probably saved me $300 in long distance phone calls alone! Dave Brennan's book is another good one as well.

    For the advanced reloader, Glen Zeidkers book "Handloading for Competition" is far and away the very best. I have read it 3 times, and still go back to it for reference. One chapter talks about reducing SD and ES.
