2012 Hodgdon Annual Manual is in stores...

Hodgdon started something with the Annual Manual.  For those of us who no longer need the basic how-tos of reloading the data in these is a valuable and useful resource and the new articles, some hyping and informative about Hodgdon's new powders are useful, too.  This year the new powder is CFE i.e. Copper Fouling Eraser.  Whatever.  It seems that it might be a seller.  Also in this years manual was a great article on the .300 AAC Blackout.  More on this cartridge later but it might be what I'm looking for in a Virginia legal cartridge for the AR-15 (the .223 Rem/5.56mm NATO isn't legal for deer as I write this).  I found my copy at a grocery store.  Get 'em where and when you can, these are well worth the rather modest cost.
