Funny how prices change from back in the day. Phil Sharpe‘s book Complete Guide to Handloading is available on Amazon for $120, Lyman’s 1st cast book is on e bay for $80.
Just remembered after starting this is that I have the first Lyman cast book boxed up somewhere. Sold our house, downsized, bought a house in late August and I’m in the middle of setting up my new casting/reloading work area. The only reference book I kept in my “gotta have this with me at all times” stuff durning the move was the current Lyman book. Darn thing covers cartridges from the Hornet to the 50cal’s.
Does everyone cross reference powders, charges, and their referenced bullet weights from load manuals to arrive at a starting charge for load development using what powders, bullet weights that you have to work with? Take care, Bill.
