No, Captain, that's the Shumaker book I have. Need the Jordan/Watt book.

Thanks for the intent but I will keep on looking. Maybe one day...

That's it, but at $130 used and $145 new? I'll wait and search. It is a year of print 2000 book and no where near out of print, so that price is exorbitant.

I love books but am not going to pay that amount for a somewhat non-obscure reference book.

I appreciate all of the help folks.

We seem to be a fairly tight group and I wholly appreciate that.

I agree.Just wanted to make sure that was the one.

Nor would I. However, if you put it on your list you should get notifications when new ones pop up. I've purchased a few used books without a blemish (that I can see) for pennies on the dollar

That's the whole idea, Jim.
Let us know if you score a copy!

Hi sourdough, I bought an excellent condition copy of that book, signed by the author, from a fellow member here for $100. It's pretty darn interesting, but once through it, I began to doubt the value of my purchase since I'm a shooter, not a serious collector.

It wouldn't' surprise me if you eventually find a copy for less than what I paid.

Regards,
Richard

Richard,   I am going to own one but need to get the ammo thing figured out.    I know you bought 32 S&W cartridges and cut them down to 32 short dimensions.   How did you shorten the cases?   Also do you use 32 S&W dies for both the short and long cases or do have separate loading dies?    Right now my interest lies in loading some 32 S&W short cartridges for a couple break top revolvers I have.   If I get the loading figured out for those I will be more inclined to convert a Colt pocket model.

If you have posted all this info elsewhere just show me the link.  Thanks

Hi Mike, I just noticed that Midway has 32 S&W brass in stock and it's on sale! See:

http://www.midwayusa.com/product/785492/starline-reloading-brass-32-s-and-w-box-of-100-bulk-packaged

I ordered another 500. My Cabelas 32 S&W brass ordered 12/2014 is still on backorder.

IMO get this 32 S&W brass while you can.

Regards,
Richard

Damn it!   Just put an order in with Midway a couple days ago.   Could have saved on shipping.   I'm going to order some right now.   Thanks for the notice.
