The Best Just Got Better …
For those who have been waiting, here is the just-printed 10th Edition of Nick Harvey’s Practical Reloading Manual, sponsored by “Lucky 13” products. Now this manual is absolutely comprehensive enough to produce superb hunting ammunition and it will point the way to the developing handloader who may want to produce the highest quality handloads for Benchrest and target competition as well as Precision Rifle discipline and Long Range play.
Nick has compiled all the old favourites, most of which he has developed loads for himself with many projectiles and propellents, but he has added some new recommended loads from from powder and bullet manufacturers for the new darlings of the Long Range crowd, listing the 6.5 Grendel, 6.5 Creedmore, .26 Nosler, .28 Nosler and .30 Nosler to bring us all up to date.
