Lyman Cast Bullet Handbook, For All Popular Rifles, Pistols, And Black Powder
"Nearly a Century of Service to the Shooter: From an inauspicious beginning in a corner of the family washing machine factory, William Lyman began a tradition which has remained the cornerstone upon which the Lyman reputation is built. The tradition of quality products at a reasonable price started with the first Lyman tang sight back in the early 1870's, and it continued as the Lyman product line expanded. By the turn of the century, Lyman had already begun producing reloading equipment. Thus, in 1925, when the opportunity arose to purchase the Ideal Tool Company, well known and respected for its line of reloading and bullet casting equipment, Lyman was more than ready to expand its commitment in the reloading field. One of the products acquired with the Ideal purchase was the Ideal Handbook, the first reloading guide published in this country. This Cast Bullet Handbook is truly a descendant of that line of popular handbooks. Of course the Lyman line of reloading and bullet casting products has continued to expand and change in design. However, you can be sure that the tradition of providing the shooter with top quality products at a reasonable price remains." [from the book of inside front cover]
