Re: Quickload - usefull??

Albeit limited, QL is still the best reloading tool by far.
NOBODY knows exactly what a given powder/lot in a given rifle/cartridge system will produce. NOT the vendors putting out manuals, including powder companies, and NOT those who happen to shoot same SAAMI cartridges in THEIR guns.
This is and will always be because their stuff is not our stuff.
Each of us is on our own to do load development. Nothing predicts THE accurate load in a given system, including QL. And nobody should be buying into notions otherwise.
OBT? Universal loads? Hogwash..
With all the variances in chambers, barrels, trigger/timing, lot-to-lot powder, bullets, brass, primers, seating depths, sizing, and neck tensions, there is absolutely no way to predict accurate loads, much less declare any as universally worth a flip in MY guns.

But QL stands alone in that it can be specifically calibrated by us, for us, with OUR stuff.
Anything else is purely anecdotal. Always has been.
Surely you've noticed by now that different barrels alone can change the whole ball game.
