Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Anybody have a printable sheet for keeping track of reloading data they'd be willing to share?

No problem. Go look at the "printable resources" part of this website and you'll find Marshall's loading pages. If you PM me your email, I'll send you the one I use.

I found a couple of free ones online that work well enough. It just depends on exactly what you want to track and what size document you're looking for, I suppose. The one I'm using is an 8.5x11" sheet that has all the data fields I want, plus more than a few I could do without.

If I wasn't being so lazy, I'd use Excel to design my own layout, which really wouldn't take all that long. If you email me, I'll reply with the free form I got online.

I built mine as a table in Word. Nothing simpler.

Landscape mode, enough top margin to allow use of a three-hole punch. Eleven columns for Date, Case, Primer, Powder, Bullet, OAL, Pressure, Velocity, SD, Group, and Remarks. Add or delete whichever of those suit you, and add rows to fit the page.

The reason I was considering Excel is that I could record shot strings and calculate ES and SD very easily, although my chronograph gives me that, if I want to jot it down. I'd like to get a netbook or ipad to have at both the reloading and shooting bench...would simplify keeping good records.

It's not a table, but useful nevertheless. I use On Target. You can get it from http://www.ontargetshooting.com/

It's not a loading chart. At least I don't use it that way, maybe you can figure it out so that you can. But if you have a scanner you can accurately measure the average group sizes, using actual statistics. Done through the program of course. It works easy enough. This way you can accurately assess your loads without any bias. Meaning if you have a ten shot group and two are "fliers" it doesn't automatically just measure the outside spread. It averages out the distance between the bullet holes. So if eight of the shots are an inch apart with the two are five inches away, it will determine it as a 2 inch group (or whatever the math would make it) instead of just calling it a five inch group. You can also ignore the fliers. Lets face it, a mosquito biting at the time you pull the trigger is a bit of an unfair way to assess a load.

I assume most competitions measure the outside spread. But the only real way to minimize that is to reduce your average size (along with removing distractions.)

I do have a hand written list of "no-good" and "good" loads that keep track of. No sense in wasting money on stuff you already proved to be "bad."

I use the free version. The version you have to pay for probably has charts and what have you. But like the others said, excel, word, and even my hand writing in a notebook are too easy.
