The book is more of a sales catalog then a handloading digest. A lot of the information is from the product sheets you would receive if you purchased the products. Little is provided on actual reloading technique. It would be better to borrow a copy or find one at a library. After you peruse it once you will not need it again.

This is a good introduction to the world of reloading. Being new, I can't tell what other important facts it's missing yet, but it is a good introduction to the basic concepts. I can't picture myself referring back to this book very often, so it might be better to look to your local library or find a friend that has one lying around. The authors gives a lot of historical data of how reloading progressed, which is unnecessary, but could be interesting to some.

As with any book, it depends on what you're looking for as to whether it is relevant to you. This one has a catalog of parts and suppliers in the back. It also contains useful tables of data such as cartridge case capacities and the like. In the front, there are several good articles, my favorite of which is an investigation of which handloading techniques bear the most fruit in accuracy. This article and the data tables alone made the purchase worthwhile to me. This book won't teach you how to handload although you will learn some useful knowledge about handloading from it and of course it contains some reference data (not load data though).

If you are looking for a book to teach you handloading, I would recommend two books: The ABC's of Reloading and Lyman's 48th Edition Reloading Handbook. Lyman's has load data, The ABC's does not.

This is a collection of articles about specific loads, it is not general information. You REALLY need to understand the fundamentals of hand-loading before you'll even understand what the authors are talking about, and even then you probably won't be interested unless you happen to construct the exact cartridge they're speaking about.

Nonetheless, the people all clearly know their subject matter and are highly skilled in their craft. Writing style and quality vary from piece to piece since no two authors are the same.

The reading tends to be on the dry 'peer-reviewed journal' side of things.

While it does have a lot of good information, the free information on the internet is more up to date and in depth. When you read the description, it says "you will gain insight to new trends", new as in April 2003. You could do without.

This is a personal book and it is difficult to follow all the time there is much information but there are also some personal tidbits. It is OK but a hard to follow book.

Experienced and well-read handloaders won't find anything new or gripping here. A bit of time on the internet will get you much more information for a lot less money.
