    INGO Interactive Reloading Manual

    I had a thought that with so many of us out here, many have loads worked up in multiple calibers, and while adjusting this or tweaking that is part of the fun, we have some folks who don't really know where to start and are a little intimidated by the whole process and could use some guidelines that have the opportunity for feedback instead of the books that offer only what's written. We've all seen the advice to buy at least two reloading manuals, to have components be the last thing you buy, etc., but those manuals don't always answer noob questions.

    So.... In that spirit, those of you who have really good, reliable loads and are willing to share, post 'em up! Please include all relevant information:
    OAL, seating depth, powder type and quantity, case headstamps (if they matter) primer manufacturer and size, bullet manufacturer and weight, finished cartridge weight, what kind of press you're using, and for which firearm(s) you're loading (and other info you might think relevant as well.)

    Also, you might include how you came upon this "recipe"; did you start low and work your way up to this, just hit on it just right, etc.

    For those who are using the information, if you have a question about a load, post it up for those too shy to do so, but drop the member a PM also, so they don't miss your question. (Remember: There is only one "dumb question: "Is it loaded?" which is dumb only because Rule #1 tells us that they're all loaded!)

    Finally, if you find a particular load to be to your liking, make sure to thank the person who posted it. Rep is usually appreciated, as is a short PM.


    Thanks for your help in keeping this a great forum!

    I am very fond of the following 9mm recipe, iv fired off over 2,000 of these with NO problems.

    4.2gr Unique powder

    124gr FMJ Round nose

    Mixed headstamps

    CCI Small pistol primers

    OAL of 1.15

    I shoot these out of my Gen 2 Glock 19


    These are my first test rounds with this recipe and it has been consistent.. This group was shot from 40ft.
    A empty gun is an expensive paper weight.

    Thanks to all who've posted so far!

    I got a note from a member who suggested I add a disclaimer to please verify that any posted load is safe. I think this is a good idea as well and should have said it initially. If you are a new reloader and use someone else's 'recipe', I suggest you make up only a few rounds and test it for safety.

    For example, and I'm going to "pick on" US Patriot for just a moment here, I used an almost identical recipe for one of my setups. I was using 4.3grains of TG powder and I recently posted how I did up about 400rds of malfunction-testers... They would fire OK, but didn't have enough oomph to cycle my pistol, so I got good at tap-rack-bang drills. I'd be suspicious of something that used any less powder and worry about squibs. It worked for him, I'm sure, but please, do test your loads and check them BEFORE you load them with a verifiable source... In the end, as valuable as a tool as it can be, this is still just a bunch of guys on the Internet talking... Including me.

    BTW, I recently upped my recipe to 4.8grains and will be fire-testing it ASAP.
