Lyman 49th

Hi all, I am looking in my new book. The Lyman 49th, and looking for load data for what I want to try next..

Currently at a Berry's RN 115 grain but want to switch to 124 grain I believe, but want to get a load data before purchasing materials...

My question is why does the Lyman manual only give data for mostly HP???

Why not give load data for FMJ or LRN?

Might try contacting Lyman about that.

Well I mean there is a load data for 95 grain FMJ but I would never go that low of a grain..

Then 147 TMJ but I would like a 124 grain FMJ or TMJ load.

I guess I can just base my 115 grain loads off of the Jacketed HP loads and just work my way up?

The data in the manual isn't a recipe to be followed. It's a starting point.

You don't need the same bullet or the same OAL.

All that's needed is an understanding of how to make adjustments to the data based on your differences.
