I use Lyman, Hornady, Speer and Lee. Then there is handloader magazines, and others.... Never hurts to cross check loads when using a new (to me) powder. I just don't trust on-line sources (even powder companies) as gospel. I need several sources to feel 'comfortable' before using a load.... That's just me...

I personally like the Lyman manual. It has a good beginner reloader reference in front and plenty of good loads... I shoot mostly lead though as it meets my needs for most everything in revolvers. But again, it isn't the 'only' source. Of course now that I found loads I like for my guns, the manuals are gathering a bit of dust . For example, .44Spec it's 7.5g of Unique/Universal under 240g SWC.... Not going to be changing that anytime soon! In .357, I have a Red Dot load that I use for all my loads now.

Seems to me the last time I looked there were several loads for .357 and .38 in the Lyman manual...
A clinger. When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. Single Action .45 Colt (Sometimes improperly referred to by its alias as the .45 'Long' Colt or .45LC). Don't leave home without it. Ok.... the .44Spec is growing on me ... but the .45 Colt is still king.
