    Can not afford to pay new prices on them. Does anyone have any used ones that they have updated for a reasonable price?

    all of my information has been coming from the net (powder man. suggestions)

    you can also hit the powder sites and pull up their online laod data for powder and procectiles per cartridge and print for free.

    also.. many newstands have relaoding mags.. find one with data int he middle pages.. lastly.. many gun shops that sell poder have stacks of small relaoding manuals. ( just powder data really ) on the counter as free- / take one type deals.

    Hodgdon Data Center is one of my most used manuals. I've got several printed manuals as well but the Hodgdon site has a lot of data and you can't beat the pricetag either! :)
    http://data.hodgdon.com/main_menu.asp
    They cover Hodgdon, IMR, and the Winchester powders.

    Alliant's website:

    It is good to have a paper manual available though too.

    If you are just reloading for one or two calibers, check out the LoadBooks offerings. They have caliber-specific data compiled from most of the major manufacturers in one book.

    You can find em on ebay every now and then too.

    Lots of good info and data links posted above.
    What manuals do you have now? Are they just old and you would like to update the data sections or are you looking for complete manuals that include the "How-To's" of reloading as well as load data?
