i lean towards paranoia when it comes to reloading safety.
Thanks for the input and It is greatly appreciated. I personally am very particular about my load data. I used hornady manual data for my 230 grain xtp loads. I can't wait to try them out.
Thanks again everyone who has added to this thread. I enjoy when a simple question or two turns into a very valuable learning session for myself, and I imagine a few others as well.
