    Ammunition/Ballistic stickies.

    With all the new folks getting into reloading I thought it might be a good idea to create a sticky with good ammo and ballistic resources located elsewhere on the internet, I mentioned it to OD and he agreed (yea I was surprised as well).
    Please feel free to add other links pertinent to bullets, ammunition, reloading that may help other members here.

    Good idea, and good info.

    Since Bullseye and Unique seem to be a pretty standard fare around here, here's a link to Alliant's reloading pages:

    Brad Alpert over at Missouribullet.com has a nice technical article on choosing the proper lead bullet alloy hardness.
