I received a reprint copy of the 1962 handbook yesterday from Cornell Pub. The actual load info is long out of date as I don't recognize some of the powders nor some of the cartridges mentioned in the book. And the rifles they talk about modifying include 03 Springfields, various Mausers, Arisakas and the like.

However, a chapter on reduced loads explained a problem I nearly experienced recently. The theory explained made sense. There is enough detail that I need to re-read the chapter again tonight (probably tomorrow night too) to understand the small details more completely.

Other chapters on headspace, pressures, etc., I'm sure are certainly as relevant today as they were then.
