    REASONABLE OFFERS CONSIDERED
    Price drop - Cash Price $150

    Sorry but the trade for option on these needs to come off.
    Need the money at this point.

    Please respond by Private message only and not in the thread. Sincere thanks.

    These have been out of print for a long time now, and these are like new.
    I truly hate to sell them, but have to at this point.


    HARD COVER
    P.O. Ackley
    Handbook for Shooters & Reloaders -
    Volumes I and II Complete

    These are the finest manuals of their kind.
    His designs turned Wildcat rounds into every day
    long range high velocity cartridges that many of you shoot today.

    This two volume set is rare and these are in
    great, near new condition.


    Hard Copy Editions

    Volume I is 9th printing 1976
    Volume II is 5th Printing 1975
    They are clean and well taken care of and will provide a wealth of information for the shooter and reloader and historian.

    I am pricing these at an arbitrary figure due to their condition and in Hard Cover.
    Price and trade value at $200, but open to trade offers.
    Cash price is firm, but trade is open. What do you have?

    Also Have Precision tools, Holsters, Belt, Collector Reels, and the list is endless,
    and I will be generous in a trade for the right item.

    Collector books values are up and down like a yo-yo.

    Please respond via PM and not in the thread.

    Indispensable literature for anyone with an interest in what makes guns work. No Handloader can be without this valuable work.

    Reading about calibers you may never experience, you will learn vastly about those you work with all the time.

    Then you learn even more when you actually read about the ones you use. A lifetime with loading written down.

    I don't think most young folks quite know Ackley :) He put more info into these volumes than anyone in the business.
    He was pure genius.
    Glad to see folks that know him :)
