    The Hodgdon web site has lots of loads. The data is yours for the asking. I just printed out loads for my rifles. I am impressed on how many loads they had on the charts for each caliber. Lots of powders covered. Hodgdon, IMR, Winchester

    Yup.... the Hodgdon site is a great resource. I usually reference it and print out all the load data for the particular cartridges I'm loading, whenever using H or W powders.

    I'm still looking to get the Hornady and Sierra manuals some day, as having info. for the exact bullet you use is very helpful.

    Too bad the bullet manufacturer's don't take the same approach to disseminating their load data for free, like the powder manufacturers do.

    I've been using their site pretty much since they put it up. It is a great resource especially since I use mostly Hodgdon/ IMR/ Winchester powders.

    Unlike other powder manufacturers' websites that only list max charges, Hodgdon online Reloading Data Center lists start and max charges. Using the "PRINT" button on the webpage, I print out the load data by caliber and keep the binder by my reloading bench for quick reference.

    Hodgdon also recently added much anticipated load data for Berry's plated bullets in 40S&W 155/165/180 gr under BERB FP.

    This may not matter to some, but for a company to post this on their homepage says a lot about them - http://www.hodgdon.com/

    The other day I found "Pet Loads" by Ken Waters. If you are into reloading it looks as if this book might have some very interesting reading. Almost 1200 pages with some good write ups on many calibers.

    Pet Loads by Ken Waters isn't just a book, it's the bible of reloading!
