Don't keep any records of what you purchase for reloading. If your wife ever finds it, it's over.

You guys crack me up! :P I don't have to worry about my wife getting mad about what I buy. :D Oh wait here she comes. :D Seriously, I write the info right on the target. Get a three hole punch and then a three ring binder and put them in that. Then if you want to keep track of it in your computer you can do that when you get home. I have started scanning my older targets now then storing them on CD's.

With the computer using MS Excel. I record the following, Firearm, Barrel Length, Date, Powder, Powder Weight, Primer, Comparator Length, Group Distance, Group Size, Group with Flyer Out, Velocity, Velocity Standard Deviation, Velocity Extreme Spread, Temperature, Wind Conditions and Comments. Like John, I have a considerable amount of data and targets stored in a 3 ring binder from my early days of serious reloading. A17Shooter

LOADING # numberPOWDER grains type BULLET grains mfgr. stylePRIMER mfgr. size color BRASS brand times sized OALload dateFIRING DATA range group sightREMARKSany other suggestions for a heading
