    You can supplement the data in your manual with the data from the powder manufacturers.

    Hodgdon Load Data Site for all Hodgdon, IMR and Winchester powders.

    Alliant's Load Data

    The Load Data for Accurate and Ramshot Powders, it was just updated.

    Vihtavuori Load Data supplied by Lapua, their parent company.

    Norma Load Data

    Load Data for Nosler bullets supplied by Nosler on their site.

    Barnes Bullets Load Data from their site.

    I hope this helps you out since you are just getting started in reloading.

    I am new to loading and was able to score two pounds of CFE-223. I have already used it all. I found couple of pounds of Accurate 2495 very cheap and am currently using it. It works very well and I will use it probably when CFE-223 becomes available again. My loading in .223 is strictly for AR's

    My favorites are Varget, 335, 4895 and RL15. Had cycling issues with 4198 and 322. Accuracy problems with ARComp. Want to try TAC, but can't find any. Also interested in trying AA2460, BL-C2, RL10X and VhitaVuori N135; but having trouble finding these also. Hell, I'm having difficulty in finding most of the powders I like!!!

    I use Win748 and H335 for projectiles lighter than 62 grains. Everything heavier gets Varget.

    I have been reloading for around three months. Have three manuals and will get more. Because of the shortages I was only able to get 2 lbs of CFE223 and I am using it for 64 gr PP's. For my son's AR I am using 55 gr SP's by Hornady and for powder I am using Accurate 2495. I am very happy with the results using the Accurate 2495. The only primers I could get were Wolf primers specifically for 5.56 and they work great too.
