    Well.......that is a BIG violation is several copyright laws!

    The book is rather big......320 pages.......and I doubt anyone will ever take the time to scan that size of a document.

    And.......It only costs about $21.00.....a small price for the wealth of info in it!

    Just buy the book.

    The link provided is an excellent source for info on why and how to cast & load. The book gives you the actual powder loads for a whole bunch of cast boolits. Saves you hours of time working up your own guesstimate loads.

    Both are a necessity. I use both as well as the Lee book all the time. There are loads in the Lee that are not in the Lyman. I xerox & cut-n-paste the specific loads I use for my boolits I cast and put them in my "Banger's Boolit Bible" to save time in the loading shop. A yellow high-liter come in handy on the copies!

    Have fun!

    Page 36 of this PDF, references three must have titles for the boolit caster's library.

    Yeah, I love cast iron cookware.
