Re: Spreadsheet for reloading

I am using a spread sheet today for making a case insert.
It calculates the cartridge taper, subtracts the case wall thickness, and comes of with the indexed diameters for the insert.

The insert is to increase the expansion ratio to get the energy up and the muzzle pressure down to one atmosphere above ambient.



Cell C3
=0.5039-(0.00128*B3)

Cell D3
=0.5039-(A3*2)-(0.00128*B3)

    I wouldn't think it would be too hard to add it once you know the formula as long as it isn't an iterative calc. I don't know what the formula's are. They might be in Brian Litz book...
