Classic
The Reloaders Bible the complete guide to making ammunition at home
By Don Geary
Prentice Hall Press
Hard cover
ISBN 0-668-06025-5
copyright 1986

This is no where even remotely close to being the bible of reloading, ebeven when first published!!

First things first, This is an 30 year old classic that has a a lot of load data in it. I picked it up at a sale table at the LGShow for under $5.00. I don't thing it is a good book for load data to much new has transpired in the intervening years. Both in the tools used and how things are done along with the data and powder.
It has the basic's about reloading metallic pistol, rifle and shotshell and covers that in 67 pages the other two under pages of data is printed from an old style dot-matrix pint outs taken form other sources.
Since I am newer to hand loading I enjoyed the way it was done back in the day. But as an introduction to handloading it could cause problems for somebody just getting interested in handloading.:thumbs::troll::thumbs:
