They publish what they used for particular loads, but if you substitute a different case or primer, it matters little if you stick with lower loads. You can always load up and you said you wanted low powered range loads. Don't worry. Some brass walls are thicker and some primers have more or less energy, but again, if you are sticking with lower powered loads. don't worry.
yes, true indeed, that i'd like to "stick to" the lower end of the charging scale, for "plinking" only.

i wasn't sure however, if i should have even asked a question about any particular casings to be used, my first thoughts, were that Speer/Federal were owned by the same company and they were using **"synergy" to promote brands with-in the same house.

Old_Me said: "yes too,....... too much info to print, but then again, each book has like a gazillion pages on the history of the people behind the company, the authors, and thier dogs, cats, etc,etc.....too much "wasted info" as i can see, (i could care less thier life's story, get to the dang point.....), when those pages could have been put to better usage publishing the powders, instead of deleting many."

Well, you and me as buyers and prospective customers for other products are a 'captive audience' when we're using these manuals so powder manufacturers, case manufacturers, etc, all use any opportunity available to 'spread their fame' so to speak. While they're spending many thousands of dollars on publishing books/manuals, they can add "their life story" and/or their additional products for very little additional capital outlay.
yeah i know, they get an advanced payment to write a book, and have to (i'd imagine) meet a certain criteria of pages to fill that book. to me, it would have been time/money, better spent for actual/factual information, rather than what underwear he wears on Fridays, and whether or not his hunting dog prefers Purina Dog Chow , or Walmart Deluxe.

it's useless pages like that crap, that remind me of an outhouse, back in the cowboy days, and a Sears & Roebuck catalog's pages, to be used as toilet paper....

for those that wanted to know what "synergy" means

What does work in synergy mean?


the combined power of a group of things when they are working together that is greater than the total power achieved by each working separately: Team work at its best results in a synergy that can be very productive.

When I buy new brass, I buy Starline. I have a crapload of brass I bought used, some at shoots where it was auctioned. I keep reloading it until it splits and toss with no regret. With mild loads, they last a long, long time.

i just checked both 45 ACP and 9mm Luger, both back ordered.

i "generally" save my brass which is S&B, Winchester, Federal (small primer, i don't have any LPP Federal), as these are the brands of new ammo that i have been buying.

i had thought about new brass, when i first entertained getting into reloading, just never followed it up.

once primers become more readily available, i very well might buy new brass, to supplement my first fired ones.
