    I have been picking up copies of older reloading manuals as of late not so much for the data information, but to learn more about cartridge development and maybe resurrect some old round for a conversation piece rifle someday down the road. I picked up a copy of Speer's Wildcat Cartridge Manual #4 from a fellow shooter, and then happened across a few on ebay bringing a lot more than what I'd expect. Looking through the book, nothing jumps out just yet as being a big secret.

    Anybody know something I don't?

    kfrye, on # 4 it states "Speer Reloading Manual for Wildcat Cartridges" 1959 first printing 1956.

    I've never seen one that isn't a reloading manual.
