a bit off the main topic - but i am still LMAO after reading that! Reminds me of the 'town' I grew up in. More mine tailings than normal dirt!
In my opinion, while this site is an amazing resource, i think many people need to get to the garage and reload or get out to the range or buy a tag and go to the woods rather than worry worry worry about what their equipment so much. Don't get me wrong, I've asked my far share of 'what to buy' questions. but i honestly believe that much of the equipment that guys have will out shoot many of the shooters. the only way to fix that is to go shooting!!!
Back to the real topic - the best way to start reloading is to try and find someone that can teach you hands on. If you don't know anyone close by, try this forum. chances are someone within driving distance will be more than willing to help out. That way you can figure out what works for you without having to pay full cost for everything up front. Then you can piece together a personal 'starter kit' designed just for you! I suggest this simply because that's what has always worked for me, i get too confused looking at the 45 different chamfering tools available on midway trying to decide which one is the best.
