I've had excellant results with midweight bullets from Sierra and Hornady. IMR 4064 was my 'go to' powder for many years but now I'm using Varget.
I've been reloading since '65. For the first six years I only had a single manual and never felt I needed any more. By the time I bought my second book (because of new powders and cartridges) I had enough experience to intelligently deal with the differences found in all of them; I strongly recommend that approach to every new guy! Noobs have enough confusion to deal with without compounding it with book data differences.
