    Watered down data?

    The Aug/Sept '17 "Handloader" magazine has an excellent article about the reasons for recipe data being changed though the years. And yes, lawyers did/do play a part.

    And since I enjoy the mag and want them to stay in business, I'll let you buy your own copy.

    I'm nice like that

    I still work out of my Speer number 11 manual I got in the 80s. I still have a Speer number 8! I get loads off the net a lot, like at www.handloads.com . I have to go there with powders that didn't exist in the 80s, like the Accurate Arms stuff.

    Well maybe I will go look for the article. I support the company via an annual subscription to Loaddata.com not sure if I have access to their online articles with that or not.

    Terry Wieland, the author, talks about changes made in the 50's and other changes that were made in the 70's that reloaders need to be cognizant of, especially wildcats and odd calibers. And the fact that 4831, H-4831 and IMR 4831 are not interchangeable.

    If you are a subscriber to LoadData you should have access to the online articles. However, not all of the articles that are published in Handloader or Rifle appear as online articles om LoadData.

    Spare the powder, save the hand.

    With the problems I have with arthritis and other issues in my hands, I'm a big fan of moderate loads anyway.

    Yes, did not see this one on the list. Wonder if they wait a little then add them?

    I think the gold standard that people look for in the Lyman books is Lyman #45. It seems with Lyman 46 and newer, they have anemic loads. I'm still looking for a decent priced copy of 45 but I have 44 and 46 and run off of 49 currently due to the new powders.

    Lyman 49 doesn't have CFE Pistol powder listed.
