Thanks for the link. Great list of manuals for new & vintage firearms as well as a bunch of other stuff. (Try finding manuals for older cameras sometime.)

I see the fellow posting all these manuals asks viewers to send him any manuals they might have that are not on the list so he can scan them, make pdf files and post them (then returning the original paper manuals to the owner.) Sounds like a great idea. I plan to look through my piles of assorted junk and lend him anything I have that's not already up there.

I urge fellow forum members to consider doing the same.

I notice the list contains not just powderburners but also airgun manuals.

Question: since the list of manuals includes many for airguns - a quick scan of the index showed a lot for Benjamins and Crosmans, for example - should this sticky not also be posted in some of the other sections too? Maybe in General Airgun Chat?

FYI - the new 2018 Hodgdon Annual Manual is out.
I picked up my 3 copies of Hodgdon 2018 Annual Manual this afternoon.
One for truck, one my loading bench and one for the computer area.
New powders from IMR and Winchester.
New data for 6.5-300 WTBY, .22 & .33 Noslers as well
as updates for 36 rifle and pistol ctgs.

Picked one up last week too. Just beginning my adventures in handloading. Thought this would be a good addition to the two other books I have.

It is one of the best, considering they also list pressures and most easily found powders, WW, IMR and H.

I picked up this one this morning...

Okay so is anyone else running FireFox?
Which since Sept 2018 does not support Java!
Java and Firefox Browser
If Parker didn't also include this: I wouldn't have been able to see the PDF. Image

Yes- it will help you to understand reloading - but- is not a beginner's book. Books by Richard Lee, Hornady and Lyman are better teaching books.

Just from where I sit, I can count 59 Reloading Books. From here, I cannot see the Hodgdon Annual Manual as it and the previous 4 or 5 Annual Manual's I have (I gave a bunch away), are on another

shelf along with my own 3 and 5 ring binders of loading data covering many rifles and shotguns.

It is good to keep up to date with the powders, as manuals 30 or 50 years old have data that might not be good for the same powders made today along with many newer & better powders, which are not listed in the old books.

The annual Manual is very good at this, but only covers IMR, Hodgdon and WW powders.

If you use Norma, Western, Aliant, Ramshot or Vihtavuori Powders, you will need their respective loading manuals.
