    DISCLAIMER: All handloaders should carefully read and understand one or more reloading manuals which cover the subject in detail.  AmmoGuide.com assumes no liability in the use of this information. No warranty is expressed or implied and you use this data at your own risk. If you do not agree to these terms, do not use this information.
Never directly use a published charge unless it is specifically marked as a starting load. For all other listings, unless otherwise noted, reduce published charges by 3-5% to produce a starting load for your gun. Then, incrementally work up, being watchful for signs of over pressure. Best accuracy may be realized far below a listed maximum charge. One may not be able to actually reach a full published charge if their gun produces greater pressure than was experienced in the development firearm. Stay alert when reloading - be careful!
