For lead bullet data, go with a Lyman 50th. For jacketed bullet use go with the manufacturer of the chosen bullet (using Hornady bullets?, use Hornady manual. Speer bullets, Speer manual, etc.). Reloading manuals are much more than recipe books, there's lots of good info in the "How To" sections. If you are really new, I'd suggest The ABCs of Reloading as a basic starting text.

Hint; after you decide what you want your ammo to do, find a load in your manual(s) (bullet, primer and powder) before you buy components, and start with the starting loads. There's not enough easy to find data for plated bullets so just wait and get a little experience dealing with powder charges before you play with them...
