Today I was looking over Hogdon's reloading data site and noticed that the data for the Longshot loads I use in 16 gauge is mysteriously absent. As if I wasn't disappointed enough with 4756 getting the axe. It is a good thing that I write all of these things down in this era of "here today, gone tomorrow". Always make copies!

I've bought Hodgdons Annual reloading manuals for years now and I keep all of them. They've omitted a lot of loads from the website and newer versions of the manual that were in older versions. Lots of 16 gauge information if you back about 10 years in the manuals.

Started tracking what did & didn't work taping notes into the load manuals, just like in Sunday school. Later switched to post-it notes. X'd out loads that didn't do well in my guns. I like the new color-coded tabbed ones, the best yet, and think the loads work even better when they are written about on the fancy post-its...

I have books going back to the '70's. I never throw one out and make it a point to try and get the annual powder company books every year. That's because they dump old recipes as soon as one of the components becomes obsolete or they come up with something new for whatever reason. I have lots of old hulls and wads that are not or rarely found on the websites.
Its never to late to start this habit.
Several years back a gentleman came up on line lamenting the fact he had lost all his old loading books and data in the Katrina floods. Because I had a large collection of duplicates I could send him copies of the older books he had lost. To say he was pleased would be an understatement.
