Re: Reloading data for .357 mag Hornady 180 grain XTP
I have load data in my 47th edition Lyman manual, but I just moved and everything is still in boxes...Somewhere.
The reason the bullet manufacturers want you to pay is because it costs them to develope the loads and have them go to print. At least that is what I got from Sierra when I emailed them. I heard that from a couple other sources as well.
Another source worth looking at is the online magazines like Guns & Ammo and Shooting Times, plus a couple others.
My thoughts are in this day and age the loading manuals would be free online to try to get you to buy their bullets. I have a hard time trying a new brand with no load data, and then having to pay 20 some bucks for it.
