Learning how to reload ammunition can be a daunting task. Technical manuals and books full of arcane data can make the subject mysterious and overwhelming. No more! The Practical Guide to Reloading Ammunition teaches the subject in a fun, easy-to-understand, and safe manner.
Starting from the very beginning, The Practical Guide to Reloading Ammunition will help readers understand the gear they need - and what can wait. Chapter by chapter, the book explains the entire process from brass cleaning to final inspection. Loaded with pictures and illustrations, the process is made simple and clear. With this book, readers will be reloading their own cost-effective ammunition quickly and safely.
The Practical Guide to Reloading ammunition focuses on the “how-to” aspects of reloading. Author Tom McHale explains.
“Think of reloading manuals as sheet music. And this book as Mrs. Clutterbuck’s piano lessons. If one develops a sudden urge to play Carnegie Hall, or even Bodean’s Wet Whistle Bar and Bait Shop, they could just order sheet music from the Internet. But it probably wouldn’t be the most direct path to ivory key success. Take some lessons first, then order the sheet music.”
Although the author believes reading this book will be a far more pleasant experience than weekly lessons in Mrs. Clutterbuck’s den, the idea is the same. The guide will teach aspiring reloaders how to get started.

Great introductory to reloading
I was interested in reloading but wasn’t sure it was for me. Tom made it easy to understand some of the complexities of reloading and actually made me laugh a couple of times (which was concerning to the people on the plane I was on). The information is basic and Tom explains that many times. This book is for the beginner or an interested party not the veteran looking to improve competition loads. If you aren’t quite sure whether reloading is for you or not, give this practical guide a try.
