Thank you for the heads up!!

Thank you for all of the responses and pms! I think I was able to respond to everyone, if not my apologies! I ended up finding a set of the hard covers, so I snagged them up! I think I would like to get a set of the paperbacks to leave in the reloading room. But before that happens I need to make a tuition payment...... Soo I'll be getting back to y'all!

Thanks again,

Calvin

Calvin, 2506shooter has a good memory. I don't so I looked it up. In vol.1 starting on page 73 is an enlightening story on the Swift. You're gonna enjoy those books, there's so much "old" info that's still valid today. Congrats on finding them and be sure to thank whoever told you about them!

Will do!! I am very excited to get my hands on them and read what Mr. Ackley's thoughts were on the swift!

I have a feeling by the time I am finished with them I may "need" and Ackley Improved....

I have an opportunity to pic up a 700 VSSF II 220 Swift AI. Im not sure that I can justify it right now. Its not going anywhere, so maybe in a couple of weeks.

Thanks to everyone!

I found this today for those who might want or need the books.

Cornell Publications -Handbook for Shooters & Reloaders Vol I 1962 Ackley-Wildcat


These folks have reprints of the other Ackley books as well as others.

Hers a question I had...

Does the information in the books change from the books that were printed in the 50s vs the books that were released later? Is there any additional charts or sections?

Thanks,
Calvin

Should be no changes, it's a re-print. There's been a lot of "re-inventing the wheel" when it comes to cartridges. These books will show what I mean. The info contained may be old, but only new powders and bullets have done most of the changing. There's a wealth of info to glean from these books that is just as applicable today as it was back then.
