I have seen a couple of posts by people asking about cast bullet data on the 6.5 Creedmore.  Lyman's new

reloading manual NO. 50 contains data on two Lyman bullets.  Sorry that I can't give you more information on the new manual, but the Sportsman's warehouse I was in didn't exactly encourage examination of their new manuals for sale.

The 50th has the last shooting/printing of some powders that will not be available again except on the yard sale market. So if you buy old powder, this is one to consider.

I just wish they still used the spiral binding, like the old 45th edition has.  Handled with some care, these don't wear much, and lay flat on the table or bench.  I guess it's my old Navy Nuke training, while I can tell you that 3.5 grains of Bullseye under a 200 grain cast bullet is a good, and safe light load for the .45 ACP, I won't load without the manual open on the bench, showing the load I am using.  OCD can be a feature, as well as a bug, I guess.

I have Lyman Manual's going back to #38. Plus all 4 Cast Bullet Handbooks and all 5 Shotgun Manuals.

They are My GoTo manuals for all Cast loads and the 1st place I look at for J-Loads.

Still buying every Manual that comes out.

Except the Hodgdon Magazine, after 14yrs of the same almost nothing. I've just given up on those.

Long time Caster/Reloader, Getting back into it after almost 10yrs. Life Member NRA 40+yrs, Life S.A.S.S. #375. Does this mean a description of me as a fumble-fingered knuckle-draggin' baboon. I also drool in my sleep. I firmly believe that true happiness is a warm gun. Did I mention how much I HATE auto-correct on this blasted tablet.

I now go to the Hodgdon's on line loading data source

hodgdonreloading.com

 

It is good for many different cartridges. Don't need the hard copy that is dated

INdeed, about having old loading manuals for old ctges.

I have used my copy of Phil Sharpe's Hand Book of Shooting and Reloading-1937

and added to in early '50s Second Edition

a goodly numbe of times. My P.O. Ackley's two volume handbook set has also been handy reference.
