    Whats your favorite reloading data manual?

    I am just curious what you guys/gals like?

    My favorite is the Robert Lee 2nd edition.
    They make dies, not bullets or powder, so data seems to be true and not neutered for liability purposes.
    I have several other books, most of them seem to have max load data, similar to the starting loads in the Lee book.

    Careful man, there's a beverage here!

    Lol. I do a lot of Rifle, so like Hornady and Nosler manuals. Cross reference with Lyman's and Lees

    Whats your favorite reloading data manual?

    Have you heard of a program called Quick load? Check out their website. I think it's around $150. Some of the guys on the Nosler reloading forum use it. It takes into account case brand, barrel length, specific bullets and powder, then projects pressure and velocity. You can specify everything but powder, our specify powder, and compare bullets. Saves time reloading and testing. Lots of those guys are long range hunters. Peek in on the forum, and look for QL or Quickload. The data comes out in rows, so a regular computer monitor works best on that. Their hunting pictures are great.

    Quickload looks cool, but I am too cheap, thats 3 boxes of berger bullets!.....

    If I were doing a lot of wildcat stuff, I would definitely, be into something like that.

    It's Richard Lee, I believe.
    My favorite is my Excel compilation of data from all my manuals.

    I really should do this someday. I have pages and pages of written down data, putting it all together in excel or a spread sheet of some sort, would be really nice. Also would be nice, for all my own data, from test loads and chronographing.

    I have Hornady, Speer, and Lyman reloading manuals.

    My favorite for the larger Magnums is Hornady and Lyman. Data is sparse in the Speer for that.
