    From Ingot to Target: A Cast Bullet Guide for Handgunners

    Many of you have heard that Glen Fryxell has been writing a full length book on bullet casting, most of those that have heard this have been eagerly waiting for it.

    The wait is over, the book is out and it is outstanding. The foreword is by John Taffin and says it all about this book.

    Glen decided not to publish in a paper book but instead has published the book on the LASC web site.

    From Ingot To Target, A Cast Bullet Guide For Handgunners (In pdf)

    I'm sure you'll enjoy Glen's writing as much as I did.

    I'm guessing there's no paper version at all, just the e-book?

    Yep Gear, no paper. I was quite surprised when Glen told me he was going to only publish the book online and when he offered it to me for the lasc site . . . Well, I've done some foolish things in the past but nothing nearly as foolish as saying no to that offer.

    Damn, I hate reading books on the computer. I never finished Paco's book because of that. I'm slowly printing it out and putting it in a binder, then I'll sit down and enjoy it.

    I agree...

    That is why I asked where a person can actually puchase the book...

    I actually won't read it on the Net. Too much bother and it just doesn't seem real. Plus my screen is small as it is an oldie...
