don't go. I believe his post was ment in good will. for safety even. reding that luman manualis a good start. I took it even slower. I pretty much got a copy of most of the major manuals.. lyman.. hornady, speer, nosler, lee and some IMR booklets, and phamplets.. plus a relaod annual mag or two with a data section in the middle.
all good reads. when I work up a load I flip thru all my manuals and see what powders I have to choose from in common.. then see what everybody says on starting and max values.. it's a good 'oops' check. keeps you from misreading a line and blowing something up if you look at 5 different data sets and then develop an average starting load and know a safe max limit. having extra manuals also lets you get VERY speific data as to your projectiles. IE.. when loading hornady projectiles I can referr to their specific part number vs bullet 'type' spire, boat tail..etc.. flat base.. etc.. ).
every lil bit helps.
stay safe! have fun reloading!
