    Will, I think there are some glitches yet. I enter .358 Winchester, get no results. Also tried .375 H&H, no go.
    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!

    Ric try looking the round up on the list first so you match the spelling or leave off all but the # and see what you get. if you just put 375 for example, the data is there. Problem is if it is listed as Holland and Holland and you type H&H it misses it.

    WOW . . . As someone that does a web site and understands very well the time and effort it takes I cannot even imagine what this required.

    Well done Wiljen, thank you for an exceptional resource. I'll add links on lasc.us.

    Now tweaked so you can enter a lyman or RCBS mold # and get all the data available for that mold.

    If you do not stand for something, you stand for nothing.

    You can't spell "restore" with h-y-p-o-c-r-i-s-y.

    The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.

    This is probably the finest addition to the site I've seen yet. No more bouncing all over the net trying to find hints, clues or half baked data. Good, solid info from the people that know. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
