Re: SIMPLE record keeping for load development

When I went to boot camp we had these note books. They were green and like 6x5 inches. We called them green monsters. I have one on my reloading bench where I write info down. I still have mine from Recruit Training and every once in a while I read the notes I made myself. It's usually pretty amusing.

Re: SIMPLE record keeping for load development

It depends how detailed you want to get. For me, I am sort of anal , and keep a record of almost every detail, even from cartridge to cartridge. Then I will keep a written summary of case prep, seating, etc So I can go back and retrace if needed.

I find that using a computer spreadsheet (such as Excel) is real good. I keep a workbook within the file for each batch. I then have a summary sheet that is simply a row showing only the critical data (bullet, case, charge, primer, velocity) , etc , so I can easily trace what powder I've used, what bullet, what primer, etc

I know thats more than most people do but it helps a great deal since I reload only in small batches and not too often.

Just an iPhone. I use the notepad feature, make notes for each rifle. Take pictures of targets, loading manuals etc. and put them in a folder for each rifle. Works well for the "clerically disabled" like me.
