Hodgdon’s Step-by-Step Loading Help

Midsouth Shooters Supply sells a ton of Hodgdon powders, because, of course, the company makes great products our customers love. But Hodgdon powders are also popular because the company’s experts are willing to help folks get started in the craft or guide experienced hands toward new reloading ventures. Whether you’re new to reloading or a seasoned vet, there’s always something more to learn.

That’s where Hodgdon’s Reloading Education section comes in. The company has stockpiled a wealth of information that can help take your handloading to the next level. Over the next few weeks, we’re going to look at Hodgdon’s online system for building top-rate rifle, pistol, and shotgun loads and give you some pointers on how to make time-saving and money-conserving choices on brass, bullets, and powders.

Select the Reloading for Beginners tab to learn the basics, from the effect of crimp depth in shotshells to reloading the .223 to matching shot type and size to reloading data.

Midsouth also recommends you spend some time learning about Safety. Click that tab to brush up on the do’s and don’ts of reloading, starting with the basic reloading precautions created by the NRA.

Then, select the Tips and Tricks tab for informative posts on key topics in the reloading community.

Here’s a sample of some of the things you’ll find on the site:

  1. Thank you Hodgdon’s for your quality and superior powders. In all my years of reloading, I have found Hodgdon powders combined with Hornady bullets both extremely accurate and proven excellent terminal performance on big game. You have made reloading not only a fun but pleasurable activity.

    Again, many thanks.

  2. I use the Hodgdon site quite a bit for reference. I only have one other suggestion and that is get QuickLoad software!!

  3. The primer pocket cleaning step was skipped in the video. I thought that was a critical step.

    1. I wouldn’t consider it critical unless you are trying to wring every last ounce of accuracy out of your load
