My first time...

So I've slowly been getting reloading gear together and last week my Forster press showed up.

I got it mounted Saturday and was so excited to try it out, but didn't have dies in yet so I figured I would prime some brass. It was easy to set that up on this press and after I had done about 20 rounds I stopped and thought "Oh crap! I probably should not have done that!"

I've been reading a couple reloading manuals and sure enough, had skipped ahead a few steps. So, my first time using the press and I've already messed up, but man it was sure fun and easy!

My dies should show up this week and then I think that's about all I have left to get in before I can actually start going through the entire process.

It should not be a problem. Just adjust the decapping rod high inside the dies so that it does not decap the primer.
