Reloading data online?

I could have sworn I remembered someone saying they knew of a site that had all the major reloading manual data. If so, anyone know what site that is? TIA!

Are you talking about just reloading data?. If so yes it is all over the place. Just type in reloading data and your there. You can put in your caliber that you are shooting also to narrow search

There are two good pay sites - Load Data http://loaddata.com which I belong to - has all the published data and all the loads developed by Handloader magazine (That is a lot of load data) and another that looks good Ammo Guide http://ammoguide.com/
I like Load Data and if I can afford it, I'd like to add Ammo Guide.
There is much free information and all the powder manufacturers and many bullet makers publish on-line data as well.

I too have subscribed to loaddata.com and found it useful. My subscription expired a couple weeks ago and I haven't renewed it yet. It has data from every powder company, nearly every bullet company, and several different magazines. It costs $30/year if I recall. I think it was ammoguide that looked interesting also. In my case, I used and printed and compiled all the useful data for the 12 cartridges I am most interested in over the course of a year. I keep that in a notebook now. I'll probably renew to loaddata or ammoguide eventually, but for now I don't need that much info. For now, I will sometimes consult the Hodgdon or Alliant online sites in the case of a new caliber or a new powder that I don't have printed out already.

Interestingly enough, when I first started subscribing to loaddata.com, they had all the published data from the Lee reloading manual. For some reason, all of a sudden I noticed all the Lee data was purged from the site. Evidently, loaddata must pay the different manual publishers for the right to include their data on the site. I guess the deal fell through with Lee. No matter, they have data from the Hodgdon, Hornady, Speer, Lyman, Barnes, Nosler, Alliant, Ramshot, VihtaVuori, and Sierra manuals all in one handy spot for every cartridge I can imagine.

AHHH The never ending quest for load data. Hope i don't offend any one here. 4 months ago that was me,forever looking,coming up with loads was as fun as shooting them. I have now forgone that proccess. I have the best load i can get in my rifle. I figure why keep it up. So now that im in this situation i have to ask all,,Once you find that load will you still keep trying more load data? or will you just load and shoot?. Before i forget. I am a paper puncher only,no hunting anymore and i know that does make some difference

I think part of the joy will be trying different powders. Reloading is bringing a whole new joy to shooting.
