This book exceeded my expectations by a wide margin. Fun to read, but filled with very practical advice. Even experienced reloaders will likely learn a thing or two. Unlike reloading manuals written by one company, the author doesn’t push any particular brand of equipment or type of setup. He does an excellent job of explaining the basics you need to get started, and what extras you might or might not want to add later on. He actually encourages starting out inexpensively and points out that basic hand tools can work just as well, albeit more slowly, than fancy electric tools. This book would definitely be my first choice to recommend to anyone interested in reloading.
