A whole bunch of info can be found here. The equipment lists are usually at the end of each match results.

Actually, you still need to back off the loads listed in the match reports and work your way up watching out for pressure signs in your rifle. Even though most PPC chambers are pretty close to the same dimensionally there could be slight differences in freebore diameter, barrel diameters that could cause pressures to escalate swiftly.

Brandon;
Consider the starting point at least 25% less than any Competitive Benchrest load you see here. By far most of these loads are not suitable for a factory rifle.

I will make sure I start at a safe load, it would be nice if there was dasher data in a reload book, so I just rite down everything I come across and if something seems high i compare it to similar loads and make sure I back down to a safe level. thanks for info everyone.
