hornady and lyman normally, but I have a few books because of the different powders and bullets that you can get. Powder companys give load data in handouts and online. Information pretty easy to come by.

It's good to cross reference your load data from several creditable and current references.

My all in one books tend to be very old load data tables from out of print books.

I'm not too happy with the Hornady book. I think the loads are on the light side from my experience.

Just my .02 for what it is worth these days.
I concur............and yes I just bumped a 5 year old thread.

Best and most accurate are results from THEIR gun... in their conditions. Your results are bound to be different.

Lyman 49th and Hornady 9th are the best IMO!

I have found that different publications contradict each other in some cases and their data isn't close to being the same. I subscribe to several reloading forums online and generally talk to others who have working load date. I usually share loads that I have worked up and we exchange information. So far it's worked pretty well for me.

Which is why the OCW method has you load over the book max, to see what occurs in YOUR gun.

The idea being, with the small increments of increase, if one level shows no pressure signs, the next increment will not be dangerous. But you STOP when you see any pressure signs and go back to the previous increment as your max in your rifle, with your components.

I just ordered the 10th Edition of Hornady and it’s arriving this morning.

I have Hornady, Sierra, Lyman, and Lee books. I also built up a binder of losing manuals from powder manufacturers, since they seem to have bullet/powder combinations not in the other books. Just Google “Loading Manual PDF” and sift through the results. Can’t beat the price.
