    Sierra AND Nosler reloading data for PDF download :-)

    Hi

    I've added additional PDFs from Nosler to the existing set from Sierra

    https://www.dropbox.com/sh/kdopwcxcqcimrud/h16TGLOjsb

    This now contains

    .204
    .22 Hornet
    .222
    .223
    .22-250
    .25-06
    .243
    .260
    6.5x55
    6.5x284
    .264 Win Mag
    .270
    7x57
    7mm-08
    .284
    .280
    7mmRM
    .30-30
    .308
    .30-06
    300 Win Mag
    7.62x39
    44 mag rifle

    The 7.62x39 data is only available from Sierra - Nosler doesn't publish anything

    And for those who don't know, load data supplied by different bullet manufacturers cannot be interchanged because, among other things, the bullets are shaped differently with different bearing surfaces, copper alloy mixes etc. all of which go to different friction and pressure profiles. Something like that...

    I've also added the Barnes data
    According to Barnes their data is interchangeable across X-bullets, TSX, TTSX, LRX for the same projectile weight and calibre

    Is your 'plug' depth-adjustment maxed-out, and the die-body 'camming' slightly on the shell-holder ? Another option might be trying a different plug-profile. I would wind the seating-plug out,and check how far in the ogive of your projectile goes, before contact. If you are desperate, you could experiment with tin-foil ,compressed inside the plug-recess (after you have first seated them all as far as they will now go).Other .22 plugs, from different-caliber dies, could be worth trying, if you have them . Long-term will probably entail a better seating die
