Reloading Log Book

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

Anybody have reloading info pages that fit into a 3-ring binder? I kept my recipes written down in a small notebook, I'm looking into upgrading to a binder so that I can punch holes in targets and attach them. There are plenty of printable targets out there.

I have seen the MTM books, but I think that printing out my own will be easier and cheaper in the long run. I can figure out what I want and make it in word if I need to, but I thought I might find a good one online, or at least get some more ideas on format. Thank you.

Here you go:

I've using the Lyman log book for a long time. It's similar to Beartooth's, with 4 loads to a sheet. The sheets are tear-out and I have a folder for each calibre.

I use Excel and have modified it several times. One of excels advantages is it’s sorting capabilities.

Post 3 Ring binder size reloading data sheet

Here is a page I developed for myself several years ago in MS Excel. Unfortunately a hard drive crash four or so years ago caused me to lose the actual file, a friend scanned a page I had printed into Adobe for me. The only down side to the scan is that it turned out a little bit smaller than the original, so I have to write smaller now!

I use the BTB Load Notes form referred to above. I have a 3-ring binder for each cartridge. In the top RH corner I write a Lot # (see below). I also write the bullet weight pretty large in red ink in the right margin so I can flip through to review by bullet weight. Load sheets are filed in chronological order of date loaded. I suppose one could put all this into an electronic database but life is too short.

I put the load data in the first section at the top of the Load Notes page. Then I use the sections that follow on that sheet to record actual shooting results. The middle section gives Chrony data and accuracy. The third section reports a later trip to the range, usually just accuracy. I often snip out the groups fired and tape them on the back side of the sheet.

Brass is sorted into lots and given a Lot # to show lot, cartridge, mfg, times loaded, # of pieces. For example Lot# 0335RRP05(48) is lot number 3, 35 Rem, R-P brass, loaded 5 times, containing 48 pieces. In some cartridges I have up to 12 lots of brass. As brass gets lost or damaged, etc. the (#) goes down. Usually lots start out as (50).

This applies to centerfire rifle ammo. Pistol ammo is simply sorted by .38 or .357 and visually inspected after cleaning.
