So I was banging away at the keyboard Wednesday when the big brown truck pulled up and dropped off an unexpected package. In it was a hardback copy of the Norma Reloading Manual, Volume 2. That’s right, it just appeared out of the blue with no note. I have no idea who was kind enough to send it, so I can’t thank them. The only thing I reload are shotgun shells, but from the perspective of a non-precision shooter, it looks very comprehensive. Still, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t benefit from my bewilderment. The best caption for this photo [h/t DrVino] entered in the comments by midnight Sunday gets the book. Ready….go!

It goes without saying that Norma brass and bullets are among the very best. Enjoy the book.
