I'm not a reloader, but I've heard other guys talk about getting some "dirty loads" (obviously, not good).

What does this mean?

I was under the impression "Dirty Load" just meant that the particular load burns dirty and leaves a lot of coke behind in the action/barrel. That's what it means to me unless the meaning is more deep. For instance, Win 231 burns much dirtier in my 1911 than VV N320.

Thanks - that's what I would've guessed, but I wanted to make sure.

Using powders that are too slow for the cartridge. Such as H-380 loaded in a .223 with a 55 grain bullet will leave alot of residue in barrel and action.
