No, sorry -didn't know there was one.What calibre are you loading, a hot 10mm Auto, a lower pressure 40S&W or a rifle ?
Lyman only have their own products listed for obvious reasons, but the 150gn bullet STARTING data {less 10% to be cautious... maybe} should be OK for a lighter projectile as a starting load for experimentation surely?

Better check with Hornady Book to be safe.....
