    Well, I've been checking about 3 times a week to see if the Hodgdon 2020 reloading hit the shelves. And I found one Saturday and read it all.
    Now I've got to wait another year to see the next one.:cuss:

    On the plus side, there's a great article about the wonders of Staball 6.5 loading.:) On the downside, I just worked up a nice load of H4350 for my 6.5 Creedmore. Now I think I've got to do it again with Staball. :fire:

    And there was a nice article on loading 350 Legend. Which I'm never going to purchase. I checked back and they've never done a 450 Bushmaster article, which I already have. Hodgdon, next year a 450 Bushie guide, please!

    I like the Hodgdon manual. I only have one but refer to it from time to time. Nothing is better than a full blown reloading book though.

    I am going to show my ignorance. Is Staball a new powder? I am so behind on what powders are now available. But I have around 50 pounds of powder on hand now and don't need any more powders. And the powders I have on hand have done everything I have wanted them to do so far.

    Yes, StaBall 6.5 is a new Hodgdon powder; the supposedly-first temperature insensitive ball powder, meters well and supposed to have a lower SD velocity in fired rounds than H4350 or Varget.
