Lyman Black Powder Handbook 2nd edition
The one manual all black powder shooters should own.
Lyman has teamed up with "Mr. Muzzleloader", Sam Fadala to produce the most comprehensive black powder manual available. This manual is entirely new, from the ground up, and includes thousands of pressure tested loads using Goex and Elephant black powders, Pyrodex RS, Select and P, and Pyrodex Pellets, along with a large assortment of round balls, conicals and sabots.
Over three years went into the development of this data. Down range velocities and energies are also given for each load. Sam Fadala brings his well known expertise to this work, covering such topics as choosing your muzzleloader, building the best loads, propellants, ignition, maintenance and much more. In addition, black powder cartridges are well covered with the help of Mike Venturino. There are also hundreds of pressure tested black powder cartridge loads for such calibers as the 45-90, 45-100, 45-110 and 45-120. Cowboy action calibers such as 44-40, 45 Colt and 44 Special are also covered, as well as 10, 12 and 20 gauge shotshells.
This is one manual all black powder shooters should own.
