Reloading Data


Warning! Reloading metallic centerfire cartridges can be dangerous!

Careless or incorrect handloading procedures can result in serious personal injury. Handloading should only be done after thorough and complete instruction. Since individual handloading procedures, operations and safety practices are beyond our control, we disclaim all liability for any damages which may result.

Reloading any cartridge requires a familiarity with safe, conservative reloading practices. When combined with personal discipline and attention to detail, such practices can help create a margin of safety for both the reloader and the shooter.

1. Never begin loading with the maximum powder charge shown in these reloading data tables, regardless of your experience.

2. Never exceed maximum loads because excessive chamber pressure will result.

3. Discontnue firing at the first sign of excessive pressure or upon noticing a change in the report og the firearm.
