Re: quickload

I'm using it, I find it dramatically reduces the load development cycle.

Re: quickload

Hi Canjaeger,
I use it and find it accurate. I used it to help me design a new improved match hornet to shoot 40gn Hornady V-maxs out of a Ruger 77/22Hornet Varmint, Quickload predicted 3300fps with Win 296. To which I thought rubbish you can't get that out of a hornet but when chronographed with my Oehler 35P the load was within 3fps of that predicted I was very impressed.

I was developing some load data for a suppressed 44magnum with Vihtavouri shotgun powder and the velocities were 100-300fps slower than predicted it was barrel friction slowing them down (like 22lr ammo in long barrels begins to slow down after about 15"). I then adjusted the 'long barrel friction' and now Quickload has predicted velocitys consistently within 20fps (most of the time within 3-12fps) with velocities rangeing from 600-1200fps.
I find it a incredibly helpful program especially when you are developing wildcat ammunition load data.

Re: quickload

You tell me the colors scheme of your latest A5, is it painted or molded in, and I'll tell you where to get Quickload [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: quickload

I have it and its great!!!!! Its a little complicated for a novice as it has many features. I worked up loads for the 408 and the crono was dead on! Saves powder and bullets.

Re: quickload

The coolest thing is that you can throw 'what ifs' at it. Also, You can calibrate it.

It is however, behind on powders listed/usable. Neco says that the powder mfgs are very slow/reluctant to test or offer data. That sux
