WARNINGS
This guide is intended to be used as a reference. Each individual
handloader must determine what is the best and safest load for their
equipment. The loads described in this guide were generated in the
ballistics lab at Western Powders, Inc in accordance with SAAMI
(Shooting Arms and Ammunition Institute) guidelines. All loads are
fired through test barrels and individual results fired through
different firearms may vary. The handloader is cautioned to read
and follow safe reloading practices such as those outlined in the
NRA Guide to Reloading before attempting to reload any cartridge.
DISCLAIMER
Western Powders, Inc. has developed this guide to provide the
reloader with current data for reloading Ramshot powders. This
guide is not intended to be a reloading textbook, but rather a list of
recommended loads for Ramshot powders.
As Western Powders, Inc has no control over the actual reloading
procedures and methods being used, or the condition or choice of
firearms and components used, no responsibility for the use of this
data is implied or assumed.
The buyer/user assumes full responsibility, risk, and liabilities for
all injuries (including death), damages, and/or losses to persons or
properties resulting from the use / misuse of this product.
The ballistics data contained in this guide was obtained in the
Western Powders' ballistics laboratory under strictly controlled
conditions and is applicable for Ramshot powders exclusively.
Western Powders performs all ballistics tests in accordance with
SAAMI specifications utilizing the Piezo method for pressure
testing. It is important to remember that equipment variations,
different reloading techniques, as well as component variations
will most likely yield slightly different ballistics data. With this in
mind, it is imperative that you do not exceed the charge recommen-
dations in this guide and that you always start loading with the
minimum powder charges in the loads illustrated.
1
QUALITY CONTROL
Reloading provides an individual with a cost effective means of
obtaining ammunition, while at the same time allowing for custom
load assemblage. You, the individual handloader, are responsible
for producing the ammunition that you will later shoot. The caution
and diligence you put into your reloading process can be ultimately
rewarding or disastrous depending upon the quality of your work.
1. Common sense and care must be practiced during all phases;
2. Follow load recommendations exactly. DO NOT SUBSTITUTE
components for those listed and ALWAYS START LOADING
WITH THE MINIMUM POWDER CHARGE SHOWN;
3. Designate a work area to used only for reloading and keep that
area clean and orderly;
4. Label components and reloads for quick and easy identification;
5. Develop a reloading routine and follow it;
6. Understand what you are doing and why it must be done is a
specific manner;
7. Never reload when you are tired or distracted;
8. Wear safety glasses when reloading;
9. DO NOT smoke, eat, or drink in your reloading area or while you
are reloading;
10. Keep your powder, reloading equipment and firearms secure from
children;
11. Obey all laws and regulations regarding purchasing, quantity, and
storage of powder(s).
POWDER WARNINGS
Smokeless powder is intended to function by burning. Therefore, it
must be protected from exposure to flame, sparks, high temperatures
and the sun's rays. When ignited, smokeless powder will normally
continue to burn (and generate gas pressure) until the powder is
entirely consumed. With this in mind:
1. NEVER MIX OR SUBSTITUTE powders with other powders;
2. Avoid open flames, combustible agents, and any spark-producing
tools when handling powders;
2
3
POWDER WARNINGS (Cont.)
3. Store powder in its original container in a cool / dry place;
4. Do not keep or use old or salvaged powders;
5. Check powder for deterioration on a regular basis. Deteriorated
powder is detected by its noxious odor (not to be confused with
solvents such as alcohol or ether).
6. Pour out only the amount of powder necessary for the application
being conducted;
7. If you accidentally spill powder, use a broom and dust pan to
clean it up. DO NOT VACUUM the spilled powder;
8. Do not stockpile powder - store and utilize the amount of powder
necessary for your current reloading needs;
9. Be certain that the powder container is empty prior to discarding.
COMPONENT WARNINGS
Primers
1. NEVER MIX PRIMERS of different makes;
2. Store primers in their original packaging(s) in a cool, dry place.
Exposure to heat causes primer deterioration;
3. Do not stockpile primers or store in bulk. Storing primers in
these manners can lead to mass detonation if one of the primers
ignite;
4. Do not decap live or new primers - fire them in the appropriate
gun and then decap;
5. For best results, use the mildest primer consistent with good
ignition;
6. Do not force primers. If there is resistance in seating or feeding
primers, stop and investigate the cause of the problem;
7. Clean your hands before and after handling primers - oil contam-
ination can affect the ignitability of the primer.
POWDER BUSHINGS
1. Check shot bushing to ensure the correct shot weight charge;
2. Be certain the powder bushing is correct for the powder weight
recommended. Check the charge weight of thrown powder.

COMPONENT WARNINGS - Powder Bushings (Cont.)
3. Refer to your reloading press manufacturer in order to obtain
correct bushing sizes for all powders you are loading.
Reloading Presses
1. Take care to operate progressive loaders as the manufacturer
recommends.
2. Use a depth gauge to check powder height in shell. This can
help prevent double charging.
3. Observe the powder levels of cases placed in the loading block.
This is a way to discover any cases with double or missing
powder charges.
Shotgun
1. Use cases or hulls that are in good condition. Discard any split
mouths.
2. Base wads and shells should be of the same brand and type.
3. NEVER USE THE DRAM EQUIVALENT MEASURE AS A
WEIGHT FOR SMOKELESS POWDER IN RELOADING. The
dram equivalent is used in measuring black powder. Utilizing the
dram equivalent measure with smokeless powder can cause
dangerously high pressures resulting in property damage, personal
injury, and even death.
Rifle & Pistol
1. Examine cases before loading and discard any that are not in good
working condition.
2. Plastic cases are designed for practice loads (the bullet is propelled
by primer gas only) and can't be used for full powder loads.
3. Because of the short barrel, handgun powder must burn very
quickly. The seating depth of the bullet is extremely important
in handgun cartridges. They are extremely sensitive to small
changes in bullet hardness, crimp, bullet diameter, primer bris-
nance, and especially bullet seating depth.
4. Check the overall length of the cartridge to be certain that the
bullet is seated properly.
4
LEAD WARNING
Discharging firearms in poorly ventilated areas, handling ammu-
nition, and cleaning firearms may result in exposure to lead. Lead
exposure has been known to cause serious physical harm, as well
as birth defects and reproductive problems. Always ensure for
adequate ventilation and thoroughly wash your hands and face after
exposure to lead.
SAFETY FIRST
In order to be a safe reloader you must be cautious and precise. It
is important to always remember that you are dealing with powder
and primers that have the potential to explode and can result in
property damage, serious bodily injury and even death. It is strongly
recommended that you thoroughly familiarize yourself with proper
reloading techniques and procedures prior to reloading and shooting
your own ammunition.
WARNINGS
1. Smokeless powder is not interchangeable with black powder or
black powder substitutes such as PyrodexTM. Never utilize
smokeless powder in saluting cannons or black powder firearms.
Smokeless powder has significantly more energy than black
powder or black powder substitutes. Substituting and/or mixing
smokeless powder with black powder or black powder substitutes
can result in your firearm blowing up, property damage, personal
injury, and even death.
2. Smokeless powder is extremely flammable and care must be
practiced in its storage and handling. Keep powder stored in its
original container in a cool, dry place that is secure from children,
as well as exposure to heat, electrical equipment, and the sun's
rays. Do not store powder in the same area as solvents, combus-
tible materials, or flammable gases. Do not smoke in areas where
smokeless powder is being stored or used.
