Here is Lyman's new Reloading book, in addition to load data for everything from 204 Ruger ,223/5.56, 6.5, 6.8, 300AAC, 30 Rem AR, 308 ,7.62,7.62x51,7.62x39 Russian, 9mm, 450 bushmaster,
458 Socom, .50 Beowulf 12.7x42mm It discuses the AR cartridge confusion, Federal definition of an assault rifle, Suppressor basics,handloading for suppressed firearms, and cartridge reloading for AR's. It is the first data reloading book dedicated to the modern sporting rifle.
It is a very interesting read.

Nice addition. Hope the data is taken from real ARs. lots of reloading data for 223 has velocities measured from test guns or bolt actions with 20+ inch barrels. Real AR with the short barrels don't match that data.

Good Xmas gift.

I thought about picking up this book and was wondering about this.

I can't speak to the loads as I'm new to loading but as a lot of people feel that Lyman 49 is the gold standard in loading. Since I am going down the .50 Beowulf road  for the money I thought I would get it since there is a lot of factual info on the rifles contained in it.:thumbs:

The 49th is an OK loading manual. But it doesn't have lots of cartridges that other books have (Hornady, etc).

No .50 Beowulf in my #47.

I have the Hornady, Nosler, Speer and the others too. Along with the BPI's and The stand alone caliber one. The Lyman's AR has loads that I will need for target punching!:troll:
