Reloading Safety

I would like to point out that nor do I or any manufacturer of any products mentioned here take any responsibility for this loading data.

These loads do work fine in my guns,under my circumstances,that's the only guarantee I can give. And always start at about 10% below the figures of the load of choice and work it up,looking out for signs of high pressure!!
