Re: Online Load Data
While it may be convenient to go to some reloader's site to get your reloading data, it is not risk free. He can make typing errors and put you in jeopardy. Exchanging reloading recipes with others, with out checking it against published data or the sites of component or powder manufacturer, is dangerous.
Yes, this is a reloading forum but safe people don't use the site for reloading recipes but to exchange ideas or information on components or equipment or processes. Guns vary all over the place and what is safe in your gun may not be safe in others. Loads should be developed for YOUR specific gun or stick at the Starting Load Level recipe, using the components listed there, without exception. As you progress in reloading you can try different components but again from the Starting Load Levels.
This is, of course, your life and you can choose to do whatever you want with it, but a safe person follows the above guide lines to remain safe. When we reload we deal with pressures in the ten of thousands of PSI (10,000 to 60,000 PSI). Do it wrong and you may get flying pieces and parts that have an affinity for eyes, and love to remove appendages like fingers and worse. Reloading mistakes can and do kill! So be safe, not sorry. Use published data and work the loads up slowly and safely.
