    Welcome to the Guide.

    Lyman's Cast Bullet Handbook and Lee's Modern Reloading are the books you need.

    The Lee's Modern Reloading is the Best Book you can read.
    If you can remember 10% of what he is telling you from the first time you read it you will have come a long way in reloading.
    I have read it twice already and try to soak up as much of the info that I can.

    i take the lee book with a grain of salt but it does give you an idea that there is a recipe for the powder you want to use out there somewhere.
