Re: Teaching myself to reload
I didn't have anyone in the area to show me how to reload either, so I bought a lot of books and read everything I could find on the subject. Read everything you can, remember safety 1st, and make sure you understand the operation at hand. If you don't understand why you are doing something, than ask. It should all come together eventually. I found that reading about firearms also helped me out. After understanding what the throat, chamber, headspace, etc... it helps in understanding why you are doing (or not doing) a certain operation to a case.
