    Ok a newb here. I found a load for my 9mm. The data calls for a certain Brass shell and primer. Can I make the load using different brass and different primers?:confused:

    Yes. Just start in the middle of the data and work up to or near max.

    Your loads don't have to be max to be good. ;)

    Many of us shoot mostly less than max loads for target shooting/plinking/playing around.

    I use 4.5G of 231 with any 115G bullet(jacketed) any primer(prefer CCI for availability locally) and any brass. I don;t notice any appreciable difference in accuracy with variable brass.

    Yep, but work up the load from the 'Starting' load, not somewhere in the middle.
