    This is a fantastic book for anyone interested in reloading.

  • Mechman

    Bought it as soon as I saw it last night.

  • Aielo J

    On it, I was about to go to the library to check out an old edition, might as well get it new and have my own copy for $3.

  • Bandito762

    Does it have a section on piecing your hand back together after a KABOOM?

  • Bill

    Thanks for the heads up Steve. Just purchase it. I am getting into reloading in a couple of months.

  • Cozmo

    Thanks for the heads up. I’ve never reloaded before and I’ve been curious so this is a good way to get an idea if it is even something I want to get into.

    I have a kindle.

    I love my kindle. In fact after my daughter broke the kindle that I’d had on three continents over two years and in one war zone by stepping on it I promptly bought another without much thought.

    However there are two things that the current kindle SUXORS for. One is pictures (this book appears to be heavily illustrated) and the other is technical manuals (which I did not look through it enough to see if it is or not).

    To explain further–With most books that people read for fun or education you start at page one and read forward until you’re done, maybe backing up a page or three if you lose the vector occasionally. With technical manuals you usually DO NOT read straight through, you page around a bit. You have pages, especially in a book with tables, or programming APIs, that you want to thumb right too. Currently the Kindle doesn’t have NEARLY as good an interface as the MK II book for this sort of thing.

    That said, 3 bucks is awful cheap and you find out if you like the writing style.

    Nice! That’s so hard to pass up I couldn’t… 🙂

  • Gabe

    I see this costing at least $25 in Canada.
    Hey, we pay more than twice as much for an AR, why not for books too?

  • What a digital world we live in! On one side of the ocean, an ebook costs $3 and on the other side $5.74.
    Oh man, delivering those bits over sea sure is pricy!

    Is it available in EPUB?

  • Charles, I’ve found a version in epub but it was over $20.
