The cast loads in the manual annoy me. I dont shoot cast bullets. Back in the day Lymans cast loads were in their cast manual and I wish they had left them there.
If you don't like it, don't buy any more.
As for the 49th... Yea, it's a bit of a disappointment. Compared to the 48th, they actually dropped
quite a few cartridges, and added only a couple.
Some of the data that they did keep for the 49th is still questionable. (I would cite an example, but my copies seem to have grown legs and run away. If you were my Lyman manuals, where would you hide?
