Newbie Q.: Ref. Manuals

I've inherited a custom built target/varmint rifle in 22 PPC. Can anyone recommend a good precision shooting/reloading reference book? I have the Speer Manual & ABC's of Reloading.

It came with an arbor press & L.E. Wilson reloading dies.

Also, can anyone recommend how I can find a BR gunsmith in the Midwest to give the rifle a once over before I take it to the range?

Welcome Idaho,
If you're a beginning reloader, you've got a good start with your books now, just plan on getting more. I like Lyman's, and I'm sure there are folks around here who have ideas on more precision techniques and literature. It's one of those areas where the sky is the limit.
Have fun! jd

Try this site.

There is a list of "Top Gunsmiths" to look over. Go on the Shooter Forum with questions.

Good Shooting.
