Thanks Marshal! I found the new Trail Boss loads under IMR in a special new section. I finally got a can. Now I have to find the T.B. weight equivalents by volume for some of my Lee powder scoopers.

Paul, Lee should have the VMD for Trail Boss listed on their site by now. I did have it, but it's been misplaced. I have an Autodisc on my PRO 1000, figured the VMD setting as .66 for a 3.0g load, but it seemed to drop short of that. Went to the .71 and got 3.1g with it and it seems to hold very close tolerance.
 If they don't have it listed, give them a call and they'll give it to you...........Buck 8) ;)
I might be slow, but I'm mostly accurate.....

Hi Pards,
This is a pay site but well worth it:
www.loaddata.com
It has a CAS section.

Lots of data on this site. http://stevespages.com/page8a.htm

For those of you that cast your own:  Check out The Cast Bullet Association and the Los Angeles Silhouette Club page on casting data and formulas.  Lots of links and additional data on molds, techniques, etc.

EDIT:  Well, if it didn't work before, :o it does now... 8) thanks to whoever fixed it!  ;D

BrianEnos.com has a tremendous amount of information available, their reloading forum is a great resource for reloading information in general and also specific information about Dillon reloading equipment.

For those not familiar with Brian Enos, he is a previous Practical Pistol Champion.

         #10 = 2.5 gr.   #11 = 2.8 gr.   #12 = 3.1 gr.   #13 = 3.4 gr.   #14 = 3.7 gr.   #15 = 4.0 gr.   
         #16 = 4.3 gr.   #17 = 4.6 gr.   #18 = 4.9 gr.   #19 = 5.2 gr.   #20 = 5.5 gr.   #21 = 5.8 gr.

VMD for Trail Boss is.....  .2172    Multiply this number by how many grains you want and it will give you a number close to the Lee disc you need to use.
Example       3gr x .2172 =65
                  3.5 x .2172=76

The link to "stevenspages.com" shows CCI 550 (magnum) primers for .38 special loads. Is this a misprint or an acceptable practice?

It depends on the load.

For those who can not run their own reloading operation, there is a reloading service
run by SASS members for SASS members: Gunfire Arms & Ammunition. Box of 50
.38 Special for $11.00. These pards also do volume orders of 500. Low prices for
.45 LC reloads. They give priority to reload orders from SASS shooters. Send your
used brass to them and the cost is even less.  Best price for a commerical reload
service, that I have found. Check them out:  http://gunfirearms.com/

Here is a handy site that settles a lot of arguments with my wife. I just have to show her how much I'm saving by buying all that reloading stuff.

I came across an Access Database program that is undateable allowing you to save your favorite loads as well as those pre loaded. The guy that created used a lot of powder makers information in the initial data as well. It also prints targets for you and manuals as well as a gun database to keep track of your weapons. I got it from https://sourceforge.net/projects/reloadersrfrnce/files/Reloaders_%20Reference/9.3x74r%20-%20Final/ Now the main program is named RRv93x74r.exe (82.4 MB), from there you will need a download and install of the targets and several for the manuals. It also has some built in calculators for reloading costs, trajectory etc.
