The Speer Manual was one of the first published reloading data manuals (1954), and many reloaders consider the Speer manuals a mainstay in their reference libraries. This 14th Edition is the largest volume Speer has produced, and many new cartridges are included. Much of the data for earlier cartridges has been researched and refined for currently available powders; and new, dimensioned cartridge drawings are included. An excellent discussion section (175 pages) included step-by-step case preparation and reloading instructions, black powder loading, cast bullets and cowboy action cartridge loading. The cartridge data section includes cast bullet loading for many rifle and pistol cases. The reference section is well done with complete exterior ballistic tables. All data uses Speer bullets and ATK components where available, but most currently available powders are inluded. 1150 pages, hardback bound.
