The Preface in Hornady's Handbook of Cartridge Reloading Vol II mentions contributions by several folks and one caught my eye in particular. It says Robert Hornady took time off from his doctoral research in plasma physics to write the computer program which generated their ballistic tables for the manual.

Back in 1973 ............wow I like Hornady bullets and use some of their reloading tools. I love their reloading manuals just chocked with good advice and data.

I occasionally refer to the old pubs and enjoy rereading them. A lot has changed with equipment/powders/bullets since then, but it still is worthwhile to buy/keep these old volumes when you can find them.

    I've had their 3rd edition out all day, just thumbing through it. I've got an older Speer too. I enjoy reading them but you have to be careful they can be very enabling.
