P.O. Ackley Volumes 1 & 2

Do not know if anyone would be interested but there is a set of books on Ebay which seems to have been overlooked and someone might be able to pick them up reasonable. they are in the book section as opposed to the reloading section so they may be off the radar.

Handbook for Sooters Reloaders by P.O. Ackley Vol 1 & 2 - eBay (item 300441166411 end time Jul-03-10 16:31:02 PDT)

Aldon, how old do you reckon those are? They look like they may be pretty old and might be nice to have as maybe a collector item.

Re: P.O. Ackley Volumes 1 & 2

They appear to be the latter version which I believe was printed in 1986.

I have read elsewhere that Ackley's work is helpful in understanding improved cartridges. wildcats and such things.

I know if you do a little google searching they sell used for around 40 a piece or more, but the collector nature may be part of that. saw a pair sell for quite a bit more not long ago.

I had been checking ebay regularly as I had been trying to find an Ohaus powder measure stand. I finally got one but I am now in the habit of checking every day. I just noticed them as a good price compared to recent trends.

Re: P.O. Ackley Volumes 1 & 2

These are realy good books (I have a set) and would make a good addition to someones library

They have some good reading and lots of information on different wildcats and Improved
cartriges.

And no I am not the one that is selling them.

Re: P.O. Ackley Volumes 1 & 2

I should state that I also have nothing to do with the sale.

I bought a different set a while back but have spent so much time on the road for work I have not had the opportunity to read them.

Good to know you feel they have good content

I get to head home next weekend and pick up my 3 rifles from the smith and perhaps read through several books that I have waiting as well.

A heartfelt public "thank you" to ALDON for giving the heads-up on this 2 volume set. A nice addition to my reloding library.
