    The following is a list of Free downloadable load data, much is for cast bullets but there are many links for the manufacturer and commercial load manuals.

    Some of these sites show suggested max load only, you should start at no more than 90% of the listed load then find what works best in your gun.
    It is highly recommended that you check 2 or 3 sources for data when working up a new load.

    Lyman Cast Bullet Handbook #3, multiple older reloading handbooks & downloadable load data https://onedrive.live.com/?authkey=%...%21238&o=OneUp

    Many downloadable load manuals and caliber specific manuals &bullet casting books [Fryxel, Lyman #3, commercial]
