Recently it was decided that I really should update some of my reloading data so to that end have just acquired two new Reloading Manuals. As mentioned in another post after getting the Hornady 7th Edition I discovered than the 8th edition is out .
Today Speers 14th Ed arrived in the mail.
Flicking through it after unpacking it the thought that they have cut costs in it's production came to mind. Comparing it to #13 the photos are not as clear and despite the book being thicker it just feels cheaply made. Yet at nearly £30 it's not what one would call a cheap book.
So do those who buy and use these reloading manuals think they are well priced ?
When compared to my Vhit 1st ed manual a lot of them feel cheap. My original Hodgdons #26 is showing it's age from the wear of constant use but the Vhit manual still looks almost new. Far higher quality printing and binding. The Hornady one appears better than most of the ohers. I suppose time will tell and how well it holds up to use. I suppose I need to look at the Nosler one some time .
