I do. Articles don’t mean much to me, but the variety of data is nice.

How does that web site work? $34.95 per year, unlimited access? Or is that per caliber?

I don't. Forty bucks a year would probably be worth it but I am retired and enjoy browsing the net so I do it the old school way and spend hours googling. Not that I do much load development these days. I have about settled out on a couple of bullets and powders and don't see me doing anything new

IMO, they charge money for information they gathered for free. I can gather most, if not all, of that info directly from powder and bullet manufacturers for free from the thread above about official online reloading data sources.
Let's assume that pay site has some unique loads. I would compare them to the public sources, and NOT rely on, or trust, Billy Bob's Secret Hog Load.
I don't really trust manufacturers data until after I see it is close to another manufacturers.

The challenge is I think I might be better off just buying a book a year. Some of the data is getting old. Also, the Handloader data is helpful, but can be kind of hot sometimes.

User contrib load data that you have to pay for. That should tell you something. Would you sign up for a porn site that only used pictures that were contributed by people who paid to be a member of the site? The analogy might seem a little odd but it totally fits.
