Some basic load questions
O.K. Just getting started. Got my gear, bought some components, and of course, I'm already stuck, not to mention $400 poorer.
So, I have a Speer manual, and a Lyman manual. Shelves are still pretty empty around here. Could not find the stuff I originally wanted to get. So if yall can help...
I have Federal LP primers, Hornady 230 GR HP/XTP (prt#45160), and bullseye powder.
I'm loading for target loads...the JHP's are only because both the places I shopped didn't have any 230 or 200 RN.
Don't have a direct app in either manual.
1) Can I use the Speer GDHP 230 data for the Hornady?
2) Does using Fed. large pistol differ (data wise) from CCI or Rem?
3) I did see HSM lead RN bullets at one of the supplies. Might buy a box of those. Is RN lead universal for load? Or do I have to find data specifically for HSM.. I have data for RN lead in both books, but it is for speer, others.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it on to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free ~Ronald Reagan.
