Reloaded for first time

Got a rcbs kit for christmas gift from my wife best gift ever got for christmas.So spend the next months getting all the tools i needed to reload my own manuals bullets and cases and dies and powders.Also did more reading than i did in school.Soon much stuff to learn. last week got to shoot so of the ammo that i reloaded,boy that was great the gun did not blow up i did not get hurt or anything first up was my new ruger hawkeye in .264 Win Mag. Three shots could cover with a quarter Next up was my 6.5Creedmorr in ruger target model same thing three shots in the quarter.

I am hooked for life now.I will say one thing so many different things go into reloading which dies to buy, powder,bullets,cases.One thing you will have to do is read so much great information on reloading.Got must of the best information on this forum reading the posts so i would like to thank all the guy that take time to answer questions on here.

Re: Reloaded for first time

Congrats! I'm also pretty new to this as well...I've been reloading since before Thanksgiving, but I'm like a sponge and absorbing every tip, trick, and bit of info I can find.

I am also addicted for life. Especially with the money savings after the first initial investment.

There's nothing quite like that feeling the first time you shoot some ammo you loaded and it groups really nicely.

Re: Reloaded for first time

I'll bet your wife is regretting that gift LOL. I bought a Lyman turret press and basics several yrs ago and have since replaced everything but the press. I like reloading more than shooting. Heck I reload for my buddies just for the fun of it. It can get costly if you get the bug. Now I;m even considering the Redding T7 press.
Just remember. Primers contain lead and shot primers coat the brass so don't let kids play with the brass or tumbler. I let my kids play with the tumbler until I learned this. Even if you shoot non lead bullets there is enough lead from primer to cause damage.
