Well Atleast on this website folks will call BS real quick I mean if someone posts dangerous loads or bad reloading inflormatilon it gets called out. So It just makes me wonder maybe everything on the Internet is true ?anyways it does feel good to know the Information here is valid and isn't going to get you hurt . And this in no way directed to anyone in particular

Don't worry. The Internet is only a fad. Probably won't be around very long........ But the information here is very good but you still should verify.

Seem to recall a quote-

I've seen far too much B.S. on the web.

I trust the loads that I have personally worked up and tested over the last 50 years.

I don't care if some internet "know it all guru"(????) thinks they are too light, or too heavy. I know what works for me because I've tested and proven them.

The OP was talking about what he reads here on FTF. I think Notdku runs a very 'clean' website and illegal and dangerous activity is squelched pretty quickly here. It helps if someone reports the bad info if they come across it before us Mods do. I am still pretty much a gun newbie and I don't always know what is correct or not but I guarantee you all the other Mods know and take care of any 'bad' info promptly.

What cases can be reformed for loading a .22 Minard Xtra Long a .22 CCM or a 5.5 Velo Dog? Which bullet would be used in these Ctgs? But wait are these all the same? Would Bulls Eye work in loading these rounds? Is the 5.5 Velo Dog a high or Low pressure round?

The answer can be found on the net in seconds. It would take hours to answer these questions although simple using loading manuals. Very few reloaders would know the answers. The Web is a great source for the reloader of any ammuntion.
