Any Quickload users here?

Recommended Posts

I don't mind spending money on software.  However, I've spent more money than I care to admit in a public forum on software that either didn't cut the mustard.  Or it went obsolete and required constant updates to satisfy the bean counter residual income models.

I re-entered reloading after a thirty year hiatus ... College, family, financial and other demands were the cause.  Not a whole lot has changed.  I've repurchased much of the equipment I used to use and upgraded some like the press.

Would love to talk or meet someone that uses Quickload and run a few scenarios by them.  

If it does what it claims to do, I have no problem paying the $150 they ask for it.

I use quickload. It's GREAT if you always consider its limitations. I have used it for several years, and would buy it again. It is simulating something really complex and violent, so it's not dead accurate. It will get you close, and will give you lots of good data.

Is it worth getting if I don't have a chrono?

ive read about some of the limitations such as primer selection.  

Can it differentiate between accuracy nodes of different powder selections?

meaning one powder is more suitable?

No, it can't differentiate between accuracy nodes. You have to do real shooting tests. Accuracy nodes have to do with optimum barrel time. You can use quickload with a chrony to help find a node base on barrel time, but still have to get a muzzle velocity from a real load first.

It will help you find the best powder. That's one of it's strengths. But has more to do with proper fill at close to max chamber pressure, amount of powder burned, and muzzle velocity.

It's a simulator, and can be pretty inaccurate in some areas. It can't be your only tool.
