READ BEFORE RELOADING ANY CARTRIDGE


The task of reloading centre fire metallic cartridges should only be undertaken by someone familiar with reloading procedures. One must observe all possible safety precautions and practices in accordance with proper handling of any explosive. We suggest you read up on reloading procedures. There are a number of excellent books on the subject. After powder leaves our plant, we have no control over improper storage, handling, loading or using or on the condition of firearms or component use. For these reasons we make no warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular use. All our loading data is intended solely for use in modern weapons.


Working up charges: Every rifle, pistol and shotgun is different. Variability in manufacturing of firearms and their ammunition components create varying pressures. Shooters World has provided recommending starting charges, which should be safe in every modern, correctly manufactured, and maintained firearm of the appropriate caliber. It is incumbent upon the reloader to progress in a safe manner. Always start a load development with the recommended starting propellant charge. Upon working up the load to higher pressures, never exceed the published recommended maximum charge weight. Variation from the published loading length can and will create dangerous pressures. Watch for any signs of excessive pressure (difficult extraction, flattened or pierced primers, unusual recoil), and immediately STOP shooting if any high pressure signs are witnessed. At a minimum, use at least a chronograph to measure velocities to help determine you have the correct loading. 


ALWAYS START AT 10% LOWER FROM THE SUGGESTED

STARTING CHARGE AND NEVER EXCEED THE LOADS

  • STORE IN A COOL, DARK AND DRY PLACE. STORAGE CABINETS
  • SHOULD BE SELF VENTING, ALLOWING COMBUSTIBLE GASES TO ESCAPE
  • AND (IF POSSIBLE) SHOULD BE CONSTRUCTED OF INSULATING
  • MATERIALS TO PROTECT POWDERS FROM HEAT.
  • KEEP POWDER OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
  • DO NOT MIX POWDERS OF DIFFERENT KINDS.
  • POUR OUT ONLY THE AMOUNT OF POWDER NEEDED FOR IMMEDIATE WORK.
  • CHECK THE POWDER MEASURE EACH TIME IT IS USED. MAKE SURE
  • THE SETTINGS HAVE NOT BEEN ACCIDENTALLY CHANGED. CHECK WEIGHT“THROWN  CHARGES” FREQUENTLY.
  • CLEAN UP SPILLED POWDER. USE A BRUSH AND DUSTPAN. DO NOT USE A VACUUM CLEANER.
  • DO NOT REPACKAGE. STORE POWDER ONLY IN ITS ORIGINAL CONTAINERS.
  • DO NOT USE THE CONTAINERS TO STORE OTHER POWDERS AND MATERIALS OR FOR OTHER PURPOSE.
  • DO NOT KEEP OLD OR SALVAGED POWDERS. CHECK OLD POWDERS FOR DETERIORATION REGULARLY.
  • OBEY ALL REGULATIONS AND LEGISLATION REGARDING QUANTITY  AND METHODS OF STORING VALID IN YOUR COUNTRY. DO NOT STORE
  • ALL YOUR POWDERS IN ONE PLACE. IF YOU CAN, MAINTAIN SEPARATE STORAGE LOCATIONS. MANY SMALL CONTAINERS ARE SAFER THAN ONE OR MORE LARGE CONTAINERS.


  • Do not take internally. In case of ingestion cause vomiting by putting finger down throat. Call physician.
  • Prevent contact with food, chewing and smoking material.
  • Have adequate ventilation during handling.
