    CB load data: online sources

    This is a list of free online cast bullet load data sites:

    Some of these sites show suggested max load only, you should start at no more than 90% of the listed load then find what works best in your gun.
    It is highly recommended that you check 2 or 3 sources for data when working up a new load.

    Mods:
    Can we make this sticky? It is full of GREAT information.

    Perhaps this will help some(?), but my way of thinking is; I pay no attention to any forum expert, range rat, pet loads website, gun counter clerk or gun shop guru for any load data. I have quite successfully and safely used data from published reloading manuals (with an occasional look-see at a powder manufacturer's web sites and a few are noted in the OP). I started reloading pre-web so I have only had experiences listening to gun shop gurus, clerks and range experts, and was uncomfortable with their suggestions, so I stuck with my Lee Loader data sheet for over a year until I could afford my first manual. My main data source for well over 30 years have been published reloading manuals (I've got mebbe a dozen now). I'm sure some will welcome references to "load data websites", but those I talk to avoid them...

    Hey, jes an old feller's thoughts (reloading since 1969 without one Kaboom and only one squib).

    How might we add to this when someone comes across another source?

    This one has many sources in it, you just have to flip pages(click)/navigate through it. There are 29 pages to choose from & not all are for reloading data, but there are a few in there on some of the pages of that library that would be useful for the data perhaps...This link below is #18 of 29 , and is the Lyman Cast Bullet handbook. The choice of pages it at the top right on the page & some can be downloaded if ya like...
