    What's the deal with Ramshot powder I use Tac for 223 and Shilouette for 9mm and 45 ACP. The only data on Ramshot I can find is in the Ramshot handouts. Why is Ramshot data not in any manual such as Lee or Hornady?

    I'm not sure why, but they do have an online load guide. Are you aware of that? Download and print it out.
    Email them and ask about a manual.

    You need to get more manuals.

    Thanks NCSmitty, but that is the same manual as the Gun Store Handout.
    45ACPUSER, you happen to know of any manuals posting data for Ramshot powder?

    Lyman #49 has limited Ramshot load data in it.

    Steve's Reloading Pages has tested loads for many cartridges. There is Ramshot loading for most cartridges. Most of the loads I checked have the same loading ranges as the online Ramshot loading PDF.

    Here's the link: http://stevespages.com/page8c.htm

    I don't know what version it is (its in the other shop) but the latest Hornady version has some Ramshot data. I swear it is only mentioned once or twice, but I have at least seen it in .223.

    I have info for Tac in my Sierra, Nosler and Barnes manuals. I love to use Tac in my .223 and have used it for 6.8spc with good results. Have bought x-terminator powder for .223, but have not used it yet.
