7.0 Handloading Guide Editing Mistake

An editing mistake was made on page 33 of the new Western Powders 7.0 Handloading Guide.

On page 33, in data for the 45 Colt, the powder header for Accurate 5744 was lost in editing.  The result is three lines of data intended for use with Accurate 5744 that are grouped with data intended for use with Accurate #5.
