    is great.

    Sportsman's warehouse & Cabella's if you have them are great if you have them local.

    Check your local used book store. I've bought older manuals for $5. The newer manuals often have the exact same loads as earlier generations.

    Don't forget to go to your local library. Check out their books in "shooting", "re-loading" & "handloading".

    Ask your powder dealer for all the "freebie" manuals they have that are written by the powder companies.

    You'll be surprised what Vihtavouri will send you for free if you request it off their website. The Vightavouri powders are showing up more & more in load manuals.

    I will add that over time, there have been some powder formulations and bullets designs that have been changed ever so slightly so it is usually best to stick with the current edition of what ever manual you're using...especially if you are playing around in the realm of maximum loads. Most will remain the same for many years but there are exceptions to this...and that could get you into a dangerous spot.

    Yup, most powder makers have good little free manuals that are good reference material. Get as many of those as you can covering the powder brands you plan on using.

    I just picked up the Sierra Bullet reloader manual.

    It's got LOADS and LOADS of information on reloading as well as
    a huge amount of data for cartridges, and many different powders as well.

    $30 at Sportsman's Warehouse, but am glad I finally got it.

    Even has a huge listing of 7.62x54r, which most other manuals barely list.

    Definitely recommend the Sierra Reloading manual.
