New 2016 Alliant reloading Guide

Received it in the mail today for some unknown reason??
(Or maybe I ask for one last year and never got one?)

Anyway, it is a very nicely bound square back book, 120 pages, on heavy slick paper.
And includes much more data than my old 2009 one!!

BTW: All the Dots and Unique and 2400 are still there!!

I sent a request last week for the Alliant manual but when I went to the Accurate site they wanted $2.99 for their handout manual. Oh well, at least I could download it. I hope Alliant doesn't follow suit.

You can always use another printed resource for data. Thanks for the linky and reminder.

The online PDF version is still the 2015 version.
Accurate/Western has their version 6.0(2016) PDF online.

Thanks RC, that's great. I sent for the hard copy. I tried Reloader 17 not expecting anything, and I really like the stuff.

It looks like you can view/download the 2015 version on the net, but you can only order the 2016 version in printed form.

If there is a site with the 2016 version available to look at or download, someone please post it.
Thanks.

I picked up a couple of them at the SHOT Show, as well as the other powder manufacturer's/distributor's manuals. You can never have too much loading data.

Hope this helps.

A question about the manual. I assume the listed charge weight is the max since there is no range? Also curious as to the reasoning behind the powders they selected. For instance, the .308 168g Sierra BTHP powders chosen were the Power Pro 2000-MR and AR-Comp but no RL15? Was there a rationale for that omission? The 168g Speer shows data for RL15. Was it to save space? Get us thinking about buying a different powder (marketing)?

Edit: I may have partly answered my own question. The "Pro Line" is new for them. My guess is they want us to try it, hence pushing it by exclusion of the RL15 data

Yes, all loads listed are max loaded.
Reduce 10% for starting loads.

The only exceptions are those shown with DNR (Do Not Reduce) next to them.

(Statement on Page 8 in the manual)

I have no idea what reasoning they use in the powders they list.

Thanx for the link...I have one coming. Free is good! I looked at one at my local grocery store. (Yeah, I'm "frugal" ! ) They don't appear to have BE 86 data for anything yet, tho, and I am wanting to use some in my 357.

I doubt you looked at an Alliiant Loading guide in your grocery store.

What you probably looked at was a Hodgdon Annual Manual, which are sold on grocery store magazine racks.

And it wouldn't have any Alliant BE-86 data in it for sure, since Hodgdon doesn't sell Alliant powder.
