An Outstanding Primer Mar 25, 2008
I previously owned a copy of this book. I read it cover-to-cover, and it's one of the best I've ever seen on reloading. Dean mixes in a blend of humor and factual information to make this entertaining as well as educational.
It goes in depth into the mechanics of reloading, whether you're using a single stage machine or a modern progressive machine, and explains the use of each component, how it's made, and what it's going to do when the firing pin hits the primer.
Dean doesn't give load data, but refers the reader to the appropriate publications that do have load data. Dean's purpose in writing the book is to make the novice reloader comfortable with reloading, and to remind the old pro that there are things that can hurt you if you get too complacent.
