Reloader's Nest is also a good place to find odd load data.

I'm stuck on the stupid stuff...

Money for primers, lead... and time...

I just want to say that I use a lot of internet resources and they are a great aid in bullet casting and reloading but nothing will ever take the place of good old fashion reloading manuals. At least for me. Everyone that reloads or is thinking about taking it up owes it to themselves to have some old and new manuals on hand. It can be very interesting comparing the data worked up 50 years or more apart. Its been a while, and I need to start again but searching Ebay or other sites for old manuals can be very rewarding. Plus you get to read some of the writings of people that some of you have probably never heard of such as Warren Page, Jack O'Conner, Pete Brown, Capt. George Nonte, Dean Grennell and many others. I have Speer manuals from #6 from 1964 through #12. That reminds me I need to go find #1 through #5. You would be doing yourself a favor if you added a few to your collection. Just don't you go bidding against me. Oh and I also have every Gun Digest from the 1st edition from 1944 through the 68th edition. Folks that stuff is pure gold.

Older load data manuals are full of some very interesting things,and have a wealth of knowledge written in them.
One thing that new loaders need to be aware of with older manuals is that the load data can be way off from today's load data.
Today's gun powders are different from the same type of older powders in many cases,and that can have a big difference in the case/chamber pressure's.

Used book stores are a great place to find older load data manuals.

Absolutely. I like going through old manuals and seeing how it was done back then. I'd also like to eventually get a few more manuals to use, but until then these links should suffice.

I don't know if anyone else has played around with this program but it looks interesting. Its called reloaders reference and if you download the whole shooting match (no pun intended) its 1.6GB. You download the basic program which is just less than 90mb and then if you want the targets and manuals you download them as add ons. I had problems getting it to run on my laptop running Vista. If you google it there are instructions on making it work. I tried but couldnt get it to work but I may try again later. I downloaded it on my desktop running Windows 7 and it didn't work at first but followed the instructions and got it working without much drama. If you download all of it this is what they say is included. I've just started playing with it so I can't say for sure. Oh yeah it free.

21102 Metallic Cartridge Loads
13577 Shotshell Loads
2816 Cast Bullet Loads
712 Surplus Powder Loads

Powley Calculator
Barsness Calculator
Alloy calculator for casters
Trajectory Calculator
Twist Rate Calc

An inventory system for firearms
with the ability to store photos

metallic Cartridge Reloading inventory

A Complete mold reference including pictures

Powder profiles, burn rates, Grain/CC conversions
Powder charges held by common dippers

Bullet lookup for factory rounds

Factory round ballistics tables

Cartridge Case dimensions and water capacities

720 Firearms manuals

300+ Printable Targets

Ability to modify data tables directly and
add your own data.

Like all other programs out there, download at your own risk.
