Rifle Cartridge Reloading Data
By Chuck Hawks
Listed below are some selected reloads for rifle cartridges with which I amfamiliar. All of these loads are derived from data published in popular reloadingmanuals. You will find no super hot "idiot fringe loads" here. Maximum loads arenoted as such.This article is not intended as a reloading guide, and it does not list "starting" and"maximum" loads for each caliber. It is merely as a list of some loads that I feelare useful and proven.I have listed the brand and type of bullet, powder, primer, case, the approximatevelocity, and the source for all reloads. Also the barrel length in which each loadwas tested. Cartridge overall length and other dimensions are assumed to be toSAAMI specification for all loads.The muzzle velocities (MV) for these various handloads are based on the figuresprovided in the reloading manual used to develop the load. Individual rifles willordinarily give different (sometimes surprisingly different) velocities from thesame load, so the figures quoted should be viewed as approximate.All of the handloads listed below have proven to be safe in test rifles, but theymay not be safe in your rifle. Rifles vary, so before attempting to duplicate any of these loads please consult the major reloading manuals. Start with beginningloads and work up slowly to heavier loads. If you are a shooter and a reloader,you
must 
be a responsible adult, so I accept no responsibility for your actions.
