Another good book on precision loading, with up to date, modern tools is Glenn Zediker's, "Handloading for Competition"
. His discussion runs to over 400 pages and exhaustively covers all aspects of precision loading. His chapters on tools, and case preparation for use at long range are especially notable.
If you're going to shoot the .223 or .308 "over the course" in CMP and NRA competition, you'll find his narrative useful; but his methods and the descriptions of the tools available are useful for any shooter striving for better accuracy...check out case selection for use on the 600 yd. line...made a believer of me!
Not to pull your chain too hard, Mr. Guffy
...but I really do get higher velocities with military brass!

Our Flag is unfurled by the dying breath of our patriots in uniform. Cherish and honor it, defend what it stands for or get the hell out. Our Freedoms are not free, they've been paid for many times over.
