The table below is a listing of my favorite loads, used on a regular basis. It includes suggested loads found in several different reloading manuals and the components I used, along with chrony measurements, a short history of the cartridge, and a blurb about my experiences with the cartridge.

I have also included some calculations done by QUICKLOAD software.

As far as I am concerned the software is useless! I also started to plug my data into Load From A Disk, but the results obtained were further off-base than those acquired from QUICKLOAD!!

These programs may be fun to play with, but I'll be damned if I would accept ANY of them for load development, and I would take their results with twice as much salt as the information posted in printed reloading manuals. (And you can totally forget about manufacturer's data ... I have NEVER seen it come anywhere close to actual chronied statistics!)
