    What are your favorite loads???? Favorite Sites????
    Target or hunting?
    Mine is 3.8-4 grains of Bullseye pushing a 200grain SWC in 45ACP.
    TIGHT groups, the brass lands on the table within a foot of the gun, and you can shoot ALL DAY on a pound of powder.(7000 grains per lb, 3.8 grains per round = 1842 rounds!)


    Here is a cool site: http://10xshooters.com/calculators/

    I have a Dillon 550B and an RCBS Rockchucker.
    I develop my pistol loads and do all of my rifle on the RCBS and run my final pistol loads and large quantity rifle (41 Magnum, 45ACP and 223 Remington) on the Dillon.

    THE ORIGINAL RELOADER!

    One of the funniest things I saw at a gun show was Afghan reloadable ammo. The dealer had a HUGE sign about it above the table (Infinitely Reloadable, Cheap, etc...) and the box was full of rocks with a sign above it said (incendiary if dipped in gas and lit before thrown)
    The Original Reloader comment man me remembered that, it was funny.

    One of my favorite loads is for my 30-30. Its 33.6 grains of win 748 topped off with a 125 grain Sierra flat nose hollow point. Im shooting this out of my model 94 winchester. I've taken hogs, deer, and coyotes with this load. I do my reloading on a lee aniversry press kit.

    I have a RCBS press and I load for .223 and 22-250. I shoot quite a few different bullets. Im hoping to zero in on a favorite this summer when I have time to do a lot of shooting. Id like to consolidate and find just one bullet to shoot out of both rifles. I guess I do have one favorite for the 22-250 and its a 60 gr. Nosler Partitian with 38.0 gr. of H414. I have taken lots of deer and a dozen antelope with that combination.

    No favorites really just grab what available and look up loads as I go along. I do make sure to label all loads, powder, weight, bullet ....
