Would like to compare notes, see if there should be changes made.

Thats odd Ranger, I have it from a good source ( without computer) that his 45th list them both.
But not his 46th.
Prehaps they left it out of the 44th or skipped some editions?
Does your book have an obsolete section, maybe it is stuck in there ?
I dont know.
Thank you
Ron

Both are in the "obsolete" section of the 45th. If I had a way to copy them I would.

The Lyman 45th Edition does have data for the .351 Winchester Self-Loading on Page 295, and data for the .401 Winchester Self-Loading on Page 298.

It would likely be destructive, the way this 40 year old manual is bound, for me to attempt to scan the appropriate pages. I’d rather leave it intact and in good condition.

If you want the data, I will transcribe it and send it to you.

bullet load data

Thanks to all, I appreciate it, and thanks for the load data.
I find it odd that Lyman would skip a year and leave it out of a manual and then put it in later editions.
I will log on to Ebay and see if I can find a 44 or 45th edition.
I have an old cache or 358 size western bullets and am thinking of sizing them down to the .351 and use them in my 07'...... but they are 200 grain and I dont think I ever saw any load data for a 200gr jacketed bullet in 351wsl.
I do believe I saw it loaded for 35 Winchester or 35 Remington?
Would like to use them if they can be safely loaded.
Thanks
Ron
