Question for admin.
« on: August 07, 2013, 06:08:39 PM »
I've got my old reloading manuals handy and started wondering.
If credit to source is given, would there be an issue with posting a scanned image of some pages?
Not load data, more "cartridge dimensions and history".

The Nosler #3 has some really neat lead in stuff, written by a lot of the experts we miss today. Keith, Cooper, Milek, etc.
The Speer #10 has more cartridge history than anything, as does the Hornady #3.

So, go or no go?

P.S.
I contacted Speer, they don't care, just a standard disclaimer on "old load data", not current component type response.

Nope.  Go for it.

I'm working on it.
Getting a decent quality scan isn't as easy as I had hoped.
Testing some photography options too.

Clean BOTH sides of your scanner glass VERY well, and also the optics of the scanner itself.  Makes a HUGE difference - a lot of times, there's a slight surface smudging that isn't obvious to the eye.

I'll give that a shot.
Getting a flat image of a curved sheet is the kicker.
Always the stretched text or dark area at the seam.
