    So I just started getting into reloading (been thinking about it a long time, just now starting, worst possible time to start) and I got the lyman 50th edition manual which has some of the calibers I want like 6.5 creed&grendel, 300 blackout, etc. but does not have calibers such as 7.62 Nagant, 6.5 Carcano, and 7.7 Jap to name a few that I want. does anybody know a good manual that is just miscellaneous military loads?

    [Older manuals]( are more likely to have data for milsurps.

    Sometimes you might have to trust an internet stranger – even though you shouldn’t. The closest thing to data I could find for 7.5×53.5 Swiss was “Just use Krag data.”

    I just checked my Hornady 10th edition manual and it has data for 6.5 carcano and 7.7 Jap. I did not see anything for 7.62 nagant though.

    I have found Hornady’s manual much more comprehensive than others.

    Lee’s 2nd edition, a free download, has a number of old milsurp cartridges.

    Edited, had the wrong edition.

    Specifically there is this one.

    I think you’d be happier by a visit to [](

    Hornady has load data for 6.5 Carcano and 7.7 Japanese. If you download the app you can buy data for individual calibers for $1
