Gentlemen,

We are considering the possiblility of developing an online loading data resource center for the users of this website.   It would be comprehensive in scope, and be user interactive, utilizing the generous sharing of data and information of our users, and you, the folks who have made this forum the special resource it has become.

The vision is for a database protected by a comprehensive disclaimer notice page, and registration similar to the forum in order to use or post informaton.   The data displayed would be catagorized by caliber, cartridge, then by bullet weight, then each load under a given bullet weight sorted in ascending order of velocity, then finally the originator of the data.  Data will be not only for cast bullets, but any bullet for any cartridge... those loads that our visitors have developed or loads that they have found useful.

Data will be entered through a simple series of data boxes with some obvious data required, and then places for other optional data on each load.  Posting of that data will be instantaneous.  And printable views of course part of the program.

In order for this to be successful it will require the participation of all, if it is to be a truly comprehensive resource.  Like much of our website, it would be designed with user interaction an integral element of it's development.  

Let us know your thoughts and your opinions of such an online resource!  We want this to be YOUR source for loading information and technical help!

God Bless,

Marshall

Marshall,

This sounds like a very good idea. I'd be happy to contribute what I can, such as "moderate" or "target" loads in a number of cartridges, reduced loads for the Magnum handgun rounds, and some cast bullet stuff in .308, .30-06, .30-30, etc.

This sounds like a great idea! As a very novice reloader I can use all the load data I can get my hands on. Also it would be nice to have all the cast bullet info in one place, because in the reloading manuals you don't see 280gr cast bullet loads for .44 Mag. I'm all for this idea and will help in any way possible.

Yeah, I like the idea.  I'd be happy to contribute.  I am also looking forward to reloads I have never tried or even thought of.  This could be a wealth of informtion.  Let's do it!

Marshall,
I like to shoot some of the old rounds in modern firearms, specific ones, will there be the ability to make sure users differentiate between the stuff for the old guns and the new ones? This would also be an issue for the 45-70, etc. I look forward to this with great anticipation, as I'm sure you won't be bashful about sharing some of you best loads with us! Not that you ever did.

hey guys, take a look at the date of Marshall's original post. It's called LoadSwap.com and is the link at the top of the page.
