Lyman’s 50th Edition Reloading Handbook

    50th Front Cover sm

    Lyman Products Corporation has been in the reloading business for a long time. The company offers a wide range of tools and accessories including handbooks on reloading and casting. Now, they have released the 50th Edition of its Reloading Handbook.

    The Lyman manuals have been a trusted source for load recipes and other data for more than 100 years. The new edition features the addition of new calibers, bullets and powders. Perhaps one of the more striking changes: the handbook is in full color.

    The load data section has been increased to include the following cartridges:

    • 17 Hornet
    • 6.5 Grendel
    • 6.5 Creedmoor
    • 6.5-284
    • 26 Nosler
    • 28 Nosler
    • 300 BLK
    • 300 RCM
    • 338 RCM
    • 450 Bushmaster
    • 458 SOCOM
    • 50 Beowulf

    In addition to featuring bullets from the major makers (Barnes, Hornady, Sierra, etc.), Lyman includes an extensive selection of cast lead bullets. This makes sense, as Lyman offers many products for casting your own projectiles. In fact, the company’s MAG furnaces are some of the most popular tools for melting lead in this process.

    The new reloading manual also includes on barrels, case preperation and understanding ballistic coefficient. For this edition, the company includes a special article on the history of the company’s Reloading Handbooks.

    In addition to reloading gear, Lyman also makes a range of shooting accessories such as gun mats and chronographs.
