    Everything is online, just go to the powder companies websites.

    I wonder if your question is about reloading or about load recipes. If you are looking for a manual about reloading, I like the latest from Speer (#14) and Hornady (don't remember the issue #).

    If it is about recipes then I suggest getting a Loadbooks - not necessarily the latest recipes because the powder manufacturers' data has mostly been updated. As 10mm29 mentioned, current recipe data is online from the powder co's. I haven't noticed much movement in the projectile manufacturer data except Speer. I think Loadbooks is missing data for the 165 gr GDHP. I don't notice any changes to the Hornady recipes.

    This is printed on cheap looking paper, but it gives you a manual which combines most of the reloading manuals out there into one book: Loadbooks USA "40 S&W and 10mm Auto" Reloading Manual

    Basically, it looks like they simply xerox'ed pages from a bunch of manuals. It's not pretty, but it puts a lot of data at your fingertips for $6.99

    I think we all here should contribute to and create our own LoadBooks
    type loading manual by inputting the recipes we have from the many
    older and newer manuals that we have.

    Very simply, we just create a Sticky for each bullet weight range
    and then we all simply input the data we have.
    Heck, I think I have at least 80 percent of all the relevant
    data and could start it off if moderators agree.

    Not saying the data in it is not any good but the data in it
    is now seven years old as it was compiled with data available
    in 2003 and only for which permission was granted to use.

    We could do a lot better.

    I did something similar for 9mm. But, I only asked for a single data point (the most accurate load). When the thread slowed down, I did a summary post.

    Midway used to publish their own load book. It was kind of conservative, but it had a ton of loads.

    I'd rather have that. Manuals get more conservative over time.
