    While I've only been reloading for a few years I've seen it's popularity grow rapidly in just that short time. Because of this, sites like this one often see a new reloader asking for commonly available load data or instructions. I thought I'd help out any new reloaders by posting links to the various available resources.

    Free reloading instructions: Lyman's "Getting Started In Reloading"

    Alliant Powder: http://www.alliantpowder.com/resources/catalog.aspx
    Barnes Bullets: email@barnesbullets.com (email them with reloading inquires about their bullets)
    Hodgdon Powder: http://data.hodgdon.com, www.hodgdon.com/PDF/Hodgdon Basic Manual.pdf

    IMR Powder: http://data.hodgdon.com, www.hodgdon.com/PDF/Hodgdon Basic Manual.pdf

    Winchester Powder: http://data.hodgdon.com, www.hodgdon.com/PDF/Hodgdon Basic Manual.pdf

    While Lyman's PDF will give you the basics please don't forgo the purchase of a real manual. Here's some to choose from:
    Abc's Of Reloading: The Definitive Guide For Novice To Expert
    Lyman Reloading Handbook, 49th Edition
    Hornady Reloading Handbook 7th Edition
    Speer Reloading Manual Number 14
    Nosler Reloading Book No. 6
    Barnes Reloading Manual #4
    Lee 2nd Edition Reloading Manual
    Metallic Cartridge Reloading (out of print, may find used copies)

    And to those who are new to the sport, welcome!

    Thanks for the links. I just looked up and printed the reduced loads for kids. My books have no reduced loads in them. Wanting to load up rounds for a 9 year old to deer hunt with.

    I assumed there was a place here that had links spelled out, but that I hadn't found it yet.

    But I also didn't use reduced loads for the kids. Had my youngest shooting a 12 ga. at the age of 10.
