Lyman does all their testing independently since they do not manufacture either powder or bullets. You'll find a cross-section of bullets and powders from various manufacturers, and there are reduced loads listed with many of the bullets tested. (As for the review complaining about no data for his particular rifle...this was a statement made in ignorance...no company tests loads for individual guns...that's why there's SAAMI and standardized chambers, pressures, etc.)
The explanatory material at the front of the manual is where it really shines. They cover the basics of reloading in a systematic manner and answer most any question a beginner could come up with. They cover a variety of types of equipment and methods for preparing brass and accomplishing the task. When a new reloader joins our list, they are always referred to the Lyman manual, and universally they come back saying that their questions were answered!
There are dozens of manuals available, and most all of them are good. But you won't find a better 'first' manual than the Lyman.
As for the previous poster, with all the different gun makers and models over many years of making guns it's RARE when the book has the exact same gun in the exact same configuration as you. Good luck on your hunt for a better manual, but you wont find one.
The book first takes you through the reloading process, explains all of the components and terminology, and clearly highlights the most important parts and steps. All of the instructions are very easy to understand and there are many helpful black and white photos to illustrate points. The main section includes the specifics for each caliber, including the history and details of the cartridge (actually very interesting) and tables showing test results using various manufacture's powder and different weight bullets, with the most accurate load shown in "bold".
We also have The ABCs of Reloading: The Definitive Guide for Novice to Expert (ABC's of Reloading), which is a very informative guide as well.

Maybe I was expecting too much but everything I've read online says this is THE manual to have. I just didn't think it had that much load data.Published 2 days ago by pokey074
Great reloading book for the beginner, teaches you everything you need to know about reloading and the powders being used, but does not cover the 5.56 NATO rounds.Published 8 days ago by Robert J. Coffey
