Loading cast bullets for 9mm

I’ve been fighting with leading in my 9mm for a while now so I finally decided to pull a couple rounds and see what they measured after they were seated.

So I need a better solution to keep track of my reloading. My current setup is a simple excel spreadsheet file with an individual sheet for each caliber. This works but it has some shortcomings mainly lack of room for proper notes. I got around that by hyper linking to individual text files for the notes section but the process is tedious and time consuming. Me being lazy by nature I need something with less repetition of work so I’ll stick with it.

In the interim I’ve set up a Simple Machines discussion forum and am using that until I can find something better. It allows easy access via my local network from any device that has a web browser and allows for easy note taking, pictures of targets and is searchable.

So if anyone has any better ideas, preferably free, post em up.
