    I've been too dependent on handloads.org or .com and since they went tits up I'm floundering.

    A manual with the newer powders is what I'm searching for. I'll check out 10Ring for those loadbooksusa pamplets but I don't have much hope for that.

    Thanks

    The manufacturer's website is a great source of data especially for newer powders.

    I really like my Lee and Lyman books too.

    I looked and it gave one load for 158 gr with cfe pistol, just a max load and a jacketed bullet.

    I thought CFE was for rifles and CFP was for pistols.

    What are you loading for? 38 spl or 357 perhaps?

    Well, I know this guy who won't swap them again. And they are CFE, and CFE-223.

    I have the Lee, Lyman, Hornday and Nosler books. Sometimes the manufacturer has great info on their bullets. Thats why I have the Hornady and Lyman books.

    I like to cross reference the manuals against each other. They rarely are an exact match.

    @Army1911, the older manuals would list 38, 38+P then 357.

    Didn’t make it to 10Ring yet but there’s always tomorrow.

    CFE Pistol, CFE 223, and CFE BLK. The labels are similar but the powder is different I assure you.

    I doubt you'll find a manual with all the new powders in it. Manuals typically lag 2-3 years behind new powders.

    The newest manual on the market is the Sierra #6. A great manual if you use their bullets. Not so much if you don't.

    I got you.

    I guess I'll eventually use up the 30+ #s of CFE pistol but not in 38, 38+p nor 357mag.

    Fortunately I have a pound or two of 231 I think.
