I have looked at this sites loads before. It looks OK. BUT, I will always "sanity-check" against other sources (powder manufs., bullet manufs.).
I believe they show a field called "source", and the couple I looked at were same as Alliants site.

Yes. The field on the right side of data sheet will say where the load came from. If it says "guest", then it is from a private party. If it's from a commercial source, ie, Hodgdon, then it says so. As all load books state, reduce loads by X % before starting.

That site was started by a real nice guy in Duvall, over 10 years ago.

I don't think he is there anymore.

most of what i saw pretty much came straight from the books or manufacturers website.

i guess if you have no books of your own its d decent resource.

It's a mix of data copied from manufacturer's web sites and loads contributed by individuals. I use it as another source, but never rely on a single source for a load/powder combo I'm unfamiliar with.
