    SLC, Ut.
    Still waiting on my books and I have been doing some reading and downloading information from manufacturers sites. The books is the main thing that I would be getting my information from but I only have the internet for now until the books arrive.

    One things that I have either missed or its not shown is when using Hodgdons site http://data.hodgdon.com/main_menu.asp if you pick for instance Pistol then 357 magnum and whatever powder/bullet it does not show primer, however if you download the pdf chart for reloading they show primer (Manufacturer/size and number) and magnum or regular primer.

    Does anyone know how they are suppose to know which primer is used when using the online version? maybe I just missed something.

    Recently moved to Pennsylvania.
    The primer can be critical in really hot max. loads. Most of
    the time you can use any primer you can get ahold of and
    start a few grains lower and work up to the load you are
    going to use. Just watch for pressure signs along the way.
