I thought it might be a good idea to list the manuals I have on hand so if anyone needs some data they can PM me.

I currently have:
Speer #5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 & 14
Hornady 3rd. ed. & 6th. ed. vol.1&2
Lee Modern Reloading 1st. & 2nd. ed.
Lyman #43,45,46&48, Cast Bullet Handbook, Pistol & Revolver Handbook 1st. & 3rd.
Hodgdon #19, 21, 23, 25, 2002, 2005, 2007 & 2008
NRA Handloading 1981
Loadbooks for .45Colt, .45acp, 7.62x39, 8mm Mauser, .30-30 Win., .308 Win., .270 Win., .30-06 S.F., 303 Brit.

I also have quite a bit on .44mag & 7.62X54R that I have collected off the Internet.
And I have a subscription to Loaddata.com.

Yes its an Obsession, but I have to keep the voices happy somehow! ;)

Here's some links to sites with load data:
http://stevespages.com/page8.htm (More reloading info than you will find anywhere & lots of free downloads)
http://www.loaddata.com/home/index.cfm? ... N=99594551 (Not free but over 150,000 loads)
http://www.reloadammo.com/ (Free & lots of Data & Info)
http://www.chuckhawks.com/index2.guns.htm (some free some you have to be a member)

I haven't listed the powder/bullet manufacturers sites. I'm hoping you can find them yourselves. Well maybe!!! :p :p :p

Re: Reloading Manuals

Does the Lyman Cast Bullet Manual give you step by step rundown of the casting process and equipment needed in addition to loads for cast bullets? If so I'll pick one up as I may get started one of these years.

It covers the whole process & most equipment but its not listed in 1.2.3. step by step order (most of the manuals I've read don't list the steps in 123 order). It of course leans towards using Lyman equipment & their #2 alloy. I wouldn't use it to start with because it won't tell you about equipment & tips not Lyman. The 1st. manual I read on casting was ABC's of reloading 7th. ed. but remember casting bullets is as much an art as a sceince. I don't claim to have a lot of expertise in casting I'm still learning a lot myself. I would suggest reading everything you can & maybe find someone who knows how & pump them for all the info you can. The best place to start is castboolits.gunloads.com I would join their forum & ask as many ? as I could. Those guys will trip all over themselves to help new guys.

Re: Reloading Manuals

Thanks for the good info.

It's getting to the point where I'm going to have to start melting my own so I can keep shooting.
