    Good idea, but that tells you what you *can* use.. not necessarily what you've used, and what you've liked...

  2. That has to be one of the best ball busting posts ever on GTR.
     

  3. Better than Hammerhead's but only slightly. It is a thick spiral notebook with tabs for caliber. I don't get too fancy. Rifles loads have alot of remarks regarding pressure or MV if it's chrono'd plus accuracy. I will cut out targets and save "screamers" stapled to the page, like those really nice 3/8", 5 shot 223 loads or 1/2" 25/06 loads. I don't experiment "ad nauseum" but will work up some good, accurate loads for different bullet weights and then just stick with those. 223,243, 25-06, 7mm RM, 308, 30-06, 375 H&H and used to load 300 Weatherby, 264 Winchester Mag and 45-70 for a Ruger.
    Pistols, it depends. I load 9mm, 45 ACP, 38 Spcl, 357, 44 mag and used to load 223 and 30/30 when I had a Contender. If the pistol will be shot beyond 25 or so yards, I will spend some time on accuracy loads.
    I keep stuff simple and have never bothered with computer spread sheets. It's worked for me since 1960 this way. I'll tell you, not much has really changed in 50 years except your choice of powder has increased exponentially.
     
  4. I LOL'd seriously at 4-5 posts here. Thanks guys I needed that. I come up with a working load and shoot the heck out of them. But then again, I have only used 3 different powders, and 3 different plated bullets, all 180gr. I write it inside the cover of the used WWB ammo box.
