I have a garage-sale accumulation of 5 or 6 pieces for .30-06 reloading, all are maeked, but some may be incomplete. I would like to find a source for me to view and to put my parts alongside the real McCoys and see exactly what I don't need. I'm loading above-normal loads, very gradually and by the book, with extensive record-keeping, for Thompson Contender. I'm buying only new brass. Besides the photo-I.D. help, does anyone have a fair collection of data to share? Thanks. Cute-name.

Try RCBS, Hornady, Lee, Redding, etc, websites.

All show photos of their two, three, and four die sets, as well as parts lists for die parts.

I'm loading above-normal loads,You might want to re-think that hot load plan until you know what reloading dies look like and what they all do.

Amen.

If I gave you my charges and you used it you would only be reloading for my rifle. That would be fine for me but it might not be smart if you want to fire it in your rifle. Stick to your book and forget "above-normal loads", if even that hot.
