    Sierra Manual in the ring binder was my first. I was in Grad School and living in South Whittier, CA. The Sierra plant was a short drive and I was shooting their seconds - out of my Remington 25-06 and Ruger Super Blackhawk, buying bullets by the pound in paper bags.

    Oldest one is Speer number 9 and later versions. Bought a new Speer number 15 today hoping it would have .350 Legend, Creedmore, and etc. No luck

    John Boy, the Lee content is there, but it's a very large file so give it plenty of time to open

    Oldest I have is Speer #6 - 1969, one I got with my kit from RCBS in the early 80’s is Speer #10, first published in 1979. I still compare loads from the #10 for some pistol loads; the #6 has very little on that.
