    Most (if not all?) bullet manufacturers have load data on their websites as do most powder manufacturers?

    Not unreasonably all are biased to their own products?

    Best books I have are the cheapie (yellow jacketed) One book / One Calibre series (or One Book / One Caliber in septic speak?) which give a range of bullets and a range of powders with "most accurate" and "best hunting" loads.

    Like this http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Reloa...ref=pd_sim_b_2

    Also loads of info here http://www.reloadersnest.com/index.asp

    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it, hump it or learn from it then piss on it and walk away.

    Sorry if i am telling my Granny how to suck eggs.
    Ignore Data from the Internet unless it is from a Reliable source. ie, powder or bullet manufacturers. There are some Idiots out there posting truly outrageous data on various sites. A case in point is when i looked for Data for my 25-06 Ackley. You would not believe how many Idiots that had them running at the same velocities as a 257 Weatherby!!!!!! Had i been Green enough to duplicate them i am pretty sure i would be without Fingers or worse by now.

    The Lee manual is an excellent source of Data and the Hornady Manual has a decent section on the basics of reloading. Buy as many as you can afford.

    The 'one book one load' book I bought for .243 had old and out of date information in it and so it was worse than useless.
    Powder manufacturer's data is the best to use. They make the stuff so they should know which loads work.
