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

    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.

    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]

    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.

    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
