Which reloading manual?

The only local place around me to stock these is Gander. I went there and they had 2. Neither looked great but the Nosler manual was ok. From experience, what have you guys found most useful to an entry level reloader?

If anyone has anything they want to sell let me know. I have to start reading asap!

BTW: caliber is .223 if it matters.

Re: Which reloading manual?

I've got a Hornady, Speer, and Nosler. I tend to use the Hornady and Nosler the most, but thats because I shoot mainly those two bullets. The Speer came with my Rockchucker kit and seldom gets used, but every once in a while it's nice to have around. All three have good introductory sections at the begining.

If I were limited to only 1 it would be the Lyman Reloading Handbook 49th edition. It's the most comprehensive regarding powders and bullets used.

Why Hornaday though? What does it have that Nosler and Lyman don't?
