Lent my .243 Load Notes manual to a fellow shooter during a range session a few months ago. Somehow I left the range without my Load Notes. Hornady no longer publishes the Load Notes series. Rats. Anyone know where a fellow could find a copy for .243 Win.? DG
Didn't know Hornady ever did. As far as I know a company called Loadbooks,, USA puts them out. You can order them from places like Midsouth Shooters Supply www.midsouthshooterssupply.com or Midway USA.
Appreciate your time to answer my request. Yes, Hornady did publish load notes for about 10 or 15 most popular rifle calibers. Another group for pistol carts. These neat little hand books were just ideal for field shooting and of course reloaders. I did phone Hornady and due to very poor sales these neat units are no longer published. What I liked about the Load Note booklets they gave you the half dozen powder choices to go along with their bullets. Guess some manufacturers have harder copper than others? So if a fellow loads with Hodgson powder he'll find the powder manufacturers load will be different from Hornady's Load Notes.
Load Notes contained about 50 pages of info on the caliber you're using. Ballistic tables as well as wind drift info. I could never figure out those wind drift tables at all....I'd just hold "two dogs into the wind" and usually that took care of the matter. Again, thanks for the reply. DG
