Question Different load data for Speer bullets?

After checking with Alliant Powders loading data I found that they only give data for Speer bullets. My understanding is that Speer bullets are clad and not made with the traditional jacket, therefore are softer and require different amounts of powder. Is this true? Is there a source I can access to find the difference in loads between Speer and other bullets of the same weight and configuration? Thanks in advance and good shooting to y'all. dgang

Speer and Alliant are both owned by ATK, as are Federal, CCI, RCBS and a few other companies.
AFIK, Speer "Jacketed" bullets are just that, jacketed.

ALL bullets are different, you can't just swap data between the different manufactures.
Your best bet is to buy the latest published data from the maker of the bullets your using.
