    Most manuals list needing small pistol magnum primers for 357 mag; I see you listed standard primers. I always wondered if it's just limited to powders like H110 or all of them. I wrote to Hodgdon but haven't heard back.

    Comprohensive Load Data

    Sir
    You do good work and a lot of it.
    I am an old guy and my living situation does not allow for a massive quantity of loading manuals. Your work has actually brightened my day/life.
    I pray for GODís mercy and blessings to you and yours.
    Regards

    I just double checked as I don’t remember noticing before. Of the manuals I have on hand it was a fifty-fifty split. (One did denote slower powders as you mentioned)

    I will see how it looks edited with both primer types. The only thing I am really married to is the format of the data. It would take too long to change each page now. Keep it coming with anything you notice, I have already fixed some typos but haven’t yet uploaded the edited files.

    I like it. It is a lot cleaner and better looking than the ones i made. I do like knowing where the data came from, but i dont find it a must know as most load manuals dont state where they compiled their data from. Even though they steal it from each other.

    Keep up the good work. Thats very time consuming editing and compiling.

    I really wish castbullet load manuals were updated and released more often.

    I am purposely vague on where the data is from, but to be honest it is not at all difficult to find out if one were so inclined. I know copyright does not extend to the data itself but am less certain of saying “ hey guys it came from xyz so it’s gotta be good”.

    And given the website we are on, I went out of my way to find as much cast data as possible. Unfortunately a lot of what is out there is terrible. It might have COL it might not. Or there is no pressure or velocity data so the assumption has to be be decades old data or joe blow guestimates.

    Anyone know how to bypass the data limit for posting attachments? If I am reading my profile page correctly, I will be unable to post any more calibers. I am a ways off from posting another one, but thought i would ask.

    T_McD, I'd suggest you contact No_1 the owner by PM to discuss this. He may have a solution.

    I'm impressed! I hope you find a way to continue to post your work. Don't be discouraged by the comments "Why didn't you include" loads for someones favorite components. The manuals now don't include everything.

    I won’t get discouraged. Just know that what is posted so far represents about 3 years of my progress. I take my time and life gets in the way, but progress will be made. I am just slow.
