    Nice site.

    Seems to me they should go get data after you've selected all your choices...

    ...And they've got some steel 1 oz loads listed. Looks like Universal Clays can be used for 1 oz steel and 1-1/8 oz lead. Thanks, Hodgdon! Been looking for 1 powder I can use for steel and lead.

    Hi Joe, It's REAL slow and clunky! I like the old charts better, but at least they seem to have all of their different brand's data in one place. I did notice that the old "Nitro" factory equivalents seem to be gone from the site. I might have to dig a bit further. I saved them some time ago, but can't send someone there anymore.

    Their web site has had that NEW look for months...and it hasn't gotten any faster even with all that practice.

    I thought it was slow myself, then I realized - these are reloading recipes - how fast does it need to be? Sql if blazing fast if done the right way. I can't imagine they have millions of records in their db, but even if they did, you can index and ... get it done...

    It could be a LOT better! It shouldn't be that slooooooooowwwww! At least the data is still free, so if I were paying for it, I'd be more critical. They could default to "Lead" and leave the other options available and could actually "Save" your last search for you as a starting point.

    It is a pretty nice service. I appreciate it at whatever speed. How long does it take you to look up a recipe in one of their old books? The data is there, that's what's important so we can reload safely and shoot loads we like.
