LYMAN RELOADING MANUAL, 50TH EDITION
Loading cartridges is not an overly complex process, but one must make decisions regarding components. Those decisions are based on experiments carried out under controlled conditions to determine which powders are suitable for certain cartridges, how much powder can be used, etc. For over a century, Lyman has published such data from results carried out in the laboratory.
The most recent product is the 50th edition of the Lyman Reloading Manual. One of its desirable features is that pressures are published for loads that were fired in special pressure barrels. The Lyman manual is very comprehenisive and lists loads for all popular calibers, as well as some that are not so popular. There is also a section that gives loads for Thompson/Center firearms and, in some cases, the velocities are listed for barrels of different lengths. For the reliable data needed to produce safe loads, the Lyman Reloading Manual is a bargain.
