    Berger Reloading Manual

    Hi,

    I would like to buy the Berger Reloading Manual.

    Anyone got one they no longer use?

    Let me know when you may have.

    Cheers

    Most of the powder manufacturers seem to publish free data, the bullet manufacturers charge, I wonder why. I have recently bought the 9th edition Hornady Manual from iTunes/ibooks for around 12. Hornady also do it on Kindle, might be worth a search for the Berger one?

    Hi Alan,

    Strange that isn't it!!! I suppose the bullet manufacturers need to fleece us some more than they already do!!!

    As powders will work with numerous calibres and all bullet's it makes sense to tell us re-loaders how versatile they are so we use their powders. With bullets they all have the "supposed" advantages for the intended application, so they can afford to sell us the load data. All the bullet manufacturers websites tell us the in's and out's of the rapid expansion, weight retention etc etc, but rarely the recommended load data!!!

    I have checked Kindle and Berger do not subscribe!!! Shame really.

    I will buy the Hornady one for kindle, cheers for the heads up (excuse the pun). I take my iPad into my man cave when I am reloading anyway so I can access Kindle books that way if needs be.

    Still looking for a second hand Berger loading manual if anyone has one.

    Cheers

    I have one. It has a different perspective to the Hornady and Nosler manuals that I have for the calibres I'm interested in. Can I suggest you borrow a copy and browse the calibres you're interested in before forking out? Regards JCS
