Sierra 5th Edition Rifle & Handgun Reloading Manual

Sierra 5th Edition Rifle & Handgun Reloading Manual

This 1,152 page manual retains the popular three-ring binder format and contains cartridge information, histories, and reloading recommendations, a necessity in every reloader's library.

The sections include: a complete glossary of ballistic, reloading and firearms terminology, an updated section dealing with the reloading process, reloading tools and equipment, bore care and firearms cleaning.

Renowned ballistic experts Ted Almgren and Dr. Bill McDonald have condensed the section dealing with exterior ballistics into one of the most comprehensive dissertations available on the subject today. There's also a unique question and answer chapter with some of the most commonly asked (and some of the more unusual) questions fielded by our technical service line.

Not bad for standard calibers but really outdated manual. No small caliber data or newer powders. Please update, I feel I wasted my money.

I was about to buy the latest edition because the version I have owned for years did not have 300 Blackout and several other cal. I was interested in. I am glad I noticed that the version selling now is the same version I bought over ten years ago (Edition 5). Not sure why they have not updated it yet. They could sell a lot of books if they would write the 6th Editions.

Great resource but desperately needs to be updated. .204 Ruger and 6.5 Creedmoor please! I'm new to both of these calibers and prefer to stick with manufacturers load data for my preliminary loads. Looks like I'll be using Hornady bullets in these calibers, but I prefer Sierra! Help me help you!

I've had mine for years. I like Sierra bullets and frequently use my manual, but with the arrival of new cartridges and new powders that are missing from it, it really needs updates. The manual is loose-leaf; why not just publish update packs to insert?

Resource is way out of date. Immediate examples are 6.5 Creedmore, .204 Ruger and 6.8 SPC. Compared to other load data sources Sierra is very deficient.

Bought this and then found out it was printed in 2003. Out of date and just too many missing calibers. I wanted some more .204 Ruger data and its not even in the book. Not much different than the 2nd edition that I've had since 1978..... Wasted $30

Several updates are needed before I will buy this version. Existing information is presented well and appears accurate, but I must agree with another post that some loads differ from my older manuals for no apparent reason other than being overly conservative perhaps. Would like to see the new 26 Nosler and Remington 7mm SAUM among many others.

Missing new calibers such as the SW 500 and the Ruger .327. was told they were not going to update the book as in the past.

Very comprehensive on some of the tried and true calibers but lacking in some of the newer calibers such as the 6.5 Creedmoor.

Doesn't include 6.8 SPC load data; needs to be updated. Other loading manuals (such as Hornady) are updated for modern calibers.

Great reloading manual with a wealth of information; only four stars because 1) it really needs to be updated and 2) some inexplicably low maximum charges for some loads -- regardless of differing bbls, conditions, etc. This is borne out by experience and just about every other source of data.
