    Thanks, for the heads up. It's about time Nosler got with the competition. I love their 40gr. Varmaggedon bullets.

    What competition would that be? Nosler has had free on-line load data for years. It was similar to other bullet manufacturer's on-line data in that it was only a partial list of what their Printed manual held.

    This New on-line data is a complete list of all the same data as their printed manual, not just a few tidbits.

    NO, other bullet manufacturer does this. This new data page is not keeping up with the competition, it's blowing them out of the water.

    Guess what I just bought this morning? Nosler reloading guide 7! Why? Because Nosler only had limited data on their website. :fire:

    Ok, I'm not really mad. Even with the stuff that's free at hodgdon, etc..., I still print it up to have handy. :)

    I still prefer my hard copy of reloading data over on-line sites. I have most all the manuals old and new from the bullet and powder companies plus Lyman.

    Nosler Data

    I checked out their new data for 45 ACP-specificaly 185 HP'S and find their data for Power Pistol a lot lower than Alliant's which I have been using. Alliant lists a max of 9.5 grains for a Speer Gold Dot.Nosler lists a max of 8.5 for their 185 HP.I guess my load of 9.0 grains of PP with Nosler is over maximum.I worked up to a max of 9 in my M & P.I guess I will have to re-evaluate my loads and cut back in the future.Other than a spectactular fireball :fire:the load seems OK.I am not one normally to go over max.:banghead:After examining the data in depth, I am convinced that some but not all is old data. My reason for this is some of the powders that are the same exact thing still have different data. W296/H110 & W231/HP38 are just 2 that I noticed. How can we really trust any of the data? I am just amazed that they are so far behind times with some of the data.Am I being overly critical?:cuss:

    Huh, I have good luck with 23.5gr TAC under my 55gr .223. Guess I should get it over a chrony and see just how much below 'max' I am according to Nosler...

    The 2 sources you quoted are using different bullets and I'm guessing different seating depth. Usually, but not always when the charge weights are different like that so are the seating depths so before you get angry at anyone check everything first. (especially when it's GIVEN to you for free) Even if the OAL is the same how much space in the case being used by those 2 bullets could be different requiring a different charge weight to stay under SAAMI pressure limits.

    Thanks for the link. After looking over the .223 rem, this data is a little strange.
