Anyone have an old Lyman manual (44th Ed)?

    Who wouldn't mind checking for loading data for 9mm, 38 spl, 45acp, or 45 colt with HySkor powder? (not 700x or 800x - it's older than that)

    Picked up a can real cheap, figured I'd try to find data and work up some plinking loads.

    I'm looking at my Lyman 44th ed. and I don't see any loads for HySkor.
    Anything else I can look for?

    It is not in Lyman 44th.

    Data from DuPont in Handloader's Digest 2nd, 1964 shows:

    .38 Special 148 gr wadcutter + 2.5 gr Hi-Skor = 730 fps
    .38 Special 158 gr lead + 3.2 gr Hi-Skor = 810 fps

    .45 ACP 185 gr JSWC + 3.5 gr Hi-Skor = 650 fps
    .45 ACP 185 gr JSWC + 5.0 gr Hi-Skor = 955 fps
    .45 ACP 230 gr FMJ + 4.7 gr Hi-Skor = 800 fps

    .45 Colt 250 gr lead + 6.0 gr Hi-Skor = 785 fps

    No data given for 9mm P.

    These are maximum loads by their data then. Y'all be careful, now, you hear?

    Thanks for the data Jim. Looks a lot like Bullseye or Red Dot data (at least without a manual handy to compare). Not much goes a long way. The 38spl data is a little scary - 2.5gr?

    Sorry about the misdirection on the Lyman manual. I was told by my local components dealer to try looking there first.
