Default Reloading books/manuals

I've been doing research on reloading over the past 6 months or so, and now I'm at the point where I would like to purchase several reloading manuals/books. Does anyone know of a good website(s) where I can order them from?

Most of the local shops in my area do not carry reloading books/manuals so ordering offline is my only viable option.

Amazon is good. You can check MidwayUSA, Graf and Sons, Wideners, and MidSouth Supply. I know there are others.
Get the Lyman #49 and manuals from the bullet or powder manufacturers you think you will be using.

Do you have a FFL 03 C&R License?

MidwayUSA and Brownells give you dealer's pricing if you do.

I saved the $30 app fee on my first order.

just make sure your manuals are current. i picked up some late 60s,early 70s manuals from a garage sale and the loads in those books are spooky compared to todays info. i wouldnt suggest old manuals to a beginner.

noylj lists very good places to order manuals.I can also recommend Sierra's reloading Manuals and Hodgdon's.Sierra has a free Ballistic Service help line at 1-800-223-8799, very helpful people.
Sierra,Hodgdon,Hornady and many powder and bullet manufacturers have web sites which you maybe able to order from or have free reloading data.You can never have to many Manuals or data to cover all the bullets and powders and cartridge's out there.

i have several that i purchased from MidSouth Shooters Supply and Midway. both sources are very good on price and shipping is fast. i have Nosler, Sierra and Lee. plan to add Speer and Hornady to the library. another good book to have is the ABCs of Reloading. very informative book to have. it is a good book for beginners and seasoned reloaders as well. it's not very expensive either.
