Rifle Cartridge Reloading Data

By Chuck Hawks


Listed below are some selected reloads for rifle cartridges. All of these loads are derived from data published in popular reloading manuals. You will find no super hot "idiot fringe loads" here. Maximum loads are noted as such.

This article is not intended as a reloading guide, and it does not list "starting" and "maximum" loads for each caliber. It is merely as a list of some loads that I feel are potentially useful.

I have listed the brand and type of bullet, powder, primer, case, the approximate velocity and the source for all reloads. Also the barrel length in which each load was tested. Cartridge overall length and other dimensions are assumed to be to SAAMI specification for all loads.

The muzzle velocities (MV) for these various handloads are based on the figures provided in the reloading manual used to develop the load. Individual rifles will ordinarily give different (sometimes surprisingly different) velocities from the same load, so the figures quoted should be viewed as approximate.

All of the handloads listed have proven to be safe in test rifles, but they may not be safe in your rifle. Rifles vary, so before attempting to duplicate any of these loads, please consult the major reloading manuals. Start with beginning loads and work up slowly to heavier loads. If you are a shooter and a reloader, you must be a responsible adult, so I accept no responsibility for your actions.
