    Not sure if this will help anyone out but here is a list of load data I downloaded awhile ago that I believe came from Castpics.

    Here's what it looks like from here, and all the links are active.

    Castpics Load Lookups
    Welcome to the new Castpics Load lookup. This database has 6400 loads for cast bullet loads. Data can be searched by cartridge name, powder name, and bullet weight. You may wish to peruse the list of cartridges first as many times the difference in 45-70 and 45/70 may mean finding data or drawing a blank.

    Remember that all data was safe at the time it was tested, but this does not mean it is safe in your firearm. The owners and administrators of this site take no responsibility for the use of this data.

    I can open the link but the main page along with "reloaders reference/cast bullet data lookup" is dead links.
    Seriously considering calling a pox on whomever responsible for the damage to a fine reference site.....
    An old Cherokee was teaching his grandson about life. "Inside me two wolves fight," he told the boy.
    "One is evil - he is anger, envy, greed, arrogance, self-pity, resentment, lies, false pride, and ego. The other is good - he is joy, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, generosity, truth and faith. The same fight is inside you - and every other person, too."
    The grandson thought for a minute and asked,"Which wolf will win?"
    The old Cherokee replied, "The one you feed."

    Well I'm sorry, that's all I could find on it. It seems like the links are working for some of the others?

    Link also interesting but interesting that it lists nearly every popular caliber but 9mm, unless I blinked and missed it.

    Cool, I guess I accidentally pushed the "drop down" button this morning. I went clear to bottom of page last night to reach the 500 Linebaugh Express. Now, all the metrics show up, go figger. I do notice the reference a powder such as Unique or Red Dot and then there is AL Unique or AL Red Dot (Alliant). Alliant as always made these powders haven't they? Why the different reference?

    For those of you that want to make the spreadsheet I provided in post #4 a little more user friendly try this.

    Once the spreadsheet loads, in the tools section select "Data - Filter Views - Create New Temporary Filter View". Now this will give you the ability to filter out only the caliber(s) you are looking for.

    To filter, select the "Upside Down Triangle" symbol next to the column label you want to filter by. This will bring a list of all of the different values in that column, click on "Clear" then scroll through the list and select the caliber(s) your interested in then "OK".

    To remove filer, select the "Funnel" and then "Select All".

    I am reasonably sure the answer to this question is no.

    Al and Will are working on issues for Al's website and Castpics.
    I'm sure the problems will get rectified sooner or later, we just need some patience.

    Wow! A lifesaver. I only discovered it recently and missed it dearly.
