Lyman Sierra and Hornady, and when I bought this I decided I would make sure I got the most up to date one so I ordered from there website and I am disappointed. In my opinion just buy the books separately. The info is invaluable and they tell you how to use your equipment!!! The Load Book does not do that completely. Waist of 12$



Had you been able to see it before hand, I would have been concerned by the cartridge on the cover. :eh: :wt*: It looks like .308 or something, certainly not a rimmed cartridge. :thumbdown: They probably just have a generic picture that they use on all their books though...

Every snowflake is unique. There are uncountable grains of sand on the beach. Mosin-Nagants are like sandy snowflakes. You’ll never get all the ones you want.

I never noticed that. Looks like a 7.62x39 AK47 round.
