    Recording you handloading data??

    Quick question for all the handloaders out there. How do you guy keep track of all your load data/recipies etc? I am just getting started and thought that I would make a binder up with dividers for every caliber I load. I would put load data, Accuracy results, how well a specific combo worked etc.

    I want to try and keep track of all my load data so that I can reference the data when need be. So, what works for you guys? Is there a form that you use to record your Bullets, powder, case, primer, Velocity, Muzzle energy, accuracy etc? If so please let me know and tell me what method you use to keep everything organized.



    I am just looking for a tried and tested method so that I can start off on the right foot.



    Any help/suggustions will be greatly appreciated.



    Thanks

    Jeff

    Re: Recording you handloading data??

    I take a standard notebook out with me when shooting over the chrony to write down the results, but that's just for rough data. I keep all my reloading data on Excel spreadsheets and just print out what I need when I need it.

    I went there and registered, but when I tried to login I got an error message that told me there is no record of my username in their database. When I tried to register again I got an error saying that the user name was already taken. When I tried to register with a different user name I got an error message that my e-mail address was already registered. I just gave up.

    Re: Recording you handloading data??

    I use a form I borrowed from an old reloading book, and modified for my own purposes. Categories listed are:

    Date Loaded
    Caliber
    Quantity
    Brass Used (Mixed, brand, nickle, etc.)
    Primer (brand)
    Powder
    Charge weight
    How measured (Lee Auto-Disk, scoop, Lee Perfect Powder Measure, or Weighed)
    Bullet Brand
    Bullet Type
    Bullet weight
    Type of load (Test batch, standardized load, or practice)
    Notes (New powder lot, OAL, average velocity, etc.)

    I keep my chronograph data in a seperate book, on a form available here:

    You don't have to register to download the program. It's a free download.
