Default Garand section in Hornady manual

It sure would be great if there was a website or something that had the M1 Garand section of the Hornady reloading manual somewhere. Would really be cool if I could download it.... Hmmm..

And why would Hornady want to provide their copyrighted pages for free? There is already free reloading data available but buying the Hornady load book gives you more options.

Cause they are nice pople and we buy their bullets, tools, dies, etc.?

Odd, the powder companies publish free data while the bullet companies make you pay for their data.

I understand Lyman charging for their book; they aren't receiving constant income from bullet, powder and primer sales.

Dont you love it when people add words to your post? Couldnt someone scan the pages of the manual onto their computer and send them to you? Just a thought.

Default Garand Load Data

Nope, that would break copywrite laws. I could go to jail when the left-wing publishing co. police search my pc.

I keep a pc in my workshop on wireless to Gore's internet so I can easily access on-line info at any time I need it. Sure is more convienent than running back upstairs and digging through the bookcase, or wherever else my manuals were left.

BTW.....I love youtube and Brownells' videos on various assembly or repairs. I put together my first AR lower step-by-step watching over and over the Brownells gunsmith video series. Good Stuff.
