While I've only been reloading for a few years I've seen it's popularity grow rapidly in just that short time. Because of this, sites like this one often see a new reloader asking for commonly available load data or instructions. I thought I'd help out any new reloaders by posting links to the various available resources.

Free reloading instructions: Lyman's "Getting Started In Reloading"
http://www.lymanproducts.com/lyman/presses-and-kits/pdf/IntroToReloading.pdf
Accurate Powder: http://www.accuratepowder.com/data/Accurate%20v322%20web%20publication.pdf
Alliant Powder: http://www.alliantpowder.com/resources/catalog.aspx
Barnes Bullets: email@barnesbullets.com (email them with reloading inquires about their bullets)
Hodgdon Powder: http://data.hodgdon.com, www.hodgdon.com/PDF/Hodgdon%20Basic%20Manual.pdf
Hodgdon "Youth Loads": https://www.hodgdon.com/PDF/Youth%20Loads.pdf
IMR Powder: http://data.hodgdon.com, www.hodgdon.com/PDF/Hodgdon%20Basic%20Manual.pdf
Nosler Bullets: Catalog@nosler.com (email them with reloading inquires about their bullets)
Ramshot Powder: http://www.ramshot.com/powders/loadguide/Ramshot%20Load%20Guide%20V4.3b.pdf

Winchester Powder: http://data.hodgdon.com, www.hodgdon.com/PDF/Hodgdon%20Basic%20Manual.pdf

While Lyman's PDF will give you the basics please don't forgo the purchase of a real manual. Here's some to choose from:
Abc's Of Reloading: The Definitive Guide For Novice To Expert
Lyman Reloading Handbook, 49th Edition
Hornady Reloading Handbook 7th Edition
Speer Reloading Manual Number 14
Nosler Reloading Book No. 6

And to those who are new to the sport, welcome!

Thanks for the links. I just looked up and printed the reduced loads for kids. My books have no reduced loads in them. Wanting to load up rounds for a 9 year old to deer hunt with.

I assumed there was a place here that had links spelled out, but that I hadn't found it yet.

But I also didn't use reduced loads for the kids. Had my youngest shooting a 12 ga. at the age of 10.
