Different people have different learning styles.
I know that my learning style is from watching.
I bought this video and an RCBS rockchucker kit, bullets, brass, primers, powder, and I was loading .308
12 years later I use almost nothing from the kit or video, but it got me started.
The word 'forum" does not mean "not criticizing books."
"Ad hominem fallacy" is not the same as point by point criticism of books. If you bought the book, and believe it all, it may FEEL like an ad hominem attack, but you might strive to accept other points of view may exist.
Are we a nation of competing ideas, or a nation of forced conformity of thought?
