Reloading Data Thread
 
When ever I want to start working on a new load, I like to look at a few difference sources of data for that load before I begin. There have also been times that I couldn't find the data I was looking for, and had to improvise other data. The idea for this thread is to get as much of that info in one place as possible. So if you've got a source, feel free to post it. :)

Here's what I've found.

Accurate Powders

Don't forget Alliant:

This new doc from Western Powders (Ramshot) also incorporates Accurate Powder data as well.

One of the better burn rate charts I've seen:

Here are some I use. Like everything else on the interweb I take any load data with a grain of salt.

www.handloads.com

www.reloadammo.com

www.nosler.com/load-data

www.barnesbullets.com/information/load-data

http://stevespages.com/page8.htm

When I go to that last site I get the following warning. I just wanted to mention it. I just click "Cancel" and its not caused me any problems.

Absolutely. This is another reason I like to look at multiple data sources. If one says that 5 gr is the max, but another says 6 gr is the max, that tells me I better look into it more.

I do too. :D

I can't afford to go buy a lot of reloading manuals (and afford to keep reloading, shooting, and saving up for new guns :o), so this is the next best thing. :D
