That'd be great. I didn't know about copyright or other issues that might need to be considered..

Here's another one, somewhat more comprehensive: it calculates savings compared to factory ammo, and how much you have to reload to recoup the cost of your equipment.

A pretty fair Powley calculator for case volumes and pressures.

These plug-in calculators are just the ticket for me to over-estimate my confidence in reloading. :thumbup:

But they have helped me understand the general concepts of a lot of stuff since I first started. the first month I was so jacked up having so many knobs to fiddle with I couldn't think straight. I use them now for what-if ponderings without risking an eyeball or finger.

It's been years since I've dusted off my physics textbooks. That powley calculator makes my head spin.

Is there an easier formula to measure pressures "within the ballpark" from a chronometer? If not, then wouldn't that render chronometers unnecessary except for velocity junkies (or if testing for a suppressor)?
