    I just ran across this thread. I'm trying to follow the instructions in the OP. I also use Word 2003 but when I save it, "Template" is not a option as "Document Type"

    Anyone know if it will print on the suggested label if it is not saved as a template?

    Just make your label as a Word document and save it. When you are ready to use it, pull it up and make any changes needed, then highlight it. Click on the "mailings' icon at the top of the page and then "labels". Select the proper label under options and the highlighted info will print on your label.

    Just wanted to throw a tip out there. Sometimes it's nice to print these on sticky paper so that they can be pasted on a box of ammo and filled out. We buy lots of cheap sticky paper from ebay for printing shipping labels on. If you print on that paper and cut the labels out, you have really nice peel and stick labels for your ammo boxes! Give it a try!

    Johnny V, Thanks a lot. It works perfectly. I am so computer illiterate that sometimes I have trouble finding a site twice in a row. I have great respect for those capable of doing things like this and then passing them on. Good Job.

    I go to an Office Depot and buy a folder of 3"x4" white sticky sided inventory stickers and write what ever I want on them and stick them on the box of whatever I`m doing.Robert

    I use a Word 2003 document and the standard built-in Avery address label template to make labels like this:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	ExampleLabel.jpg 
Views:	10 
Size:	36.5 KB 
ID:	222995

    Because there is not much room on the label, I have coded the bottom line as follows:

    MaxP psi / Velocity fps / Energy ft-lb / % Burn / % Fill

    As I normally use mixed brass for my reloads, I have never bothered to include the brass manufacturer on the label. The Velocity and Energy are calculated for my particular guns. You may want to include that information on your labels.
