Re: starting out reloading

Hello Tired

All the advice you receved was good so I will just add to it.

Not giving away my age {old} I started reloading in 1965 and I beleve in the KISS Philosophy
Keep It Simple #%$@&^.

I started with a RCBS Rockcucker and a ballance scale made
by Ohas.

I recomend that you start slow and safe.

Load only one round at a time checking each step {IE ,
Brass prep-sizing,length,deburr & condition.
Primer seating
Powder charge weigh {select a slow burning powder that
fills the case with out overloading .NOTE Most reloading
books will list these as compressed loads.
Seat bullets to factory length,s
Load in a quiet place with few distraction,s
reloading is fun and rewarding BUT IS VERY SEROUS

Start simple and as you develop your skills you
can think of more speed and equipment.

I hope this advice will help.

I still use a single stage press and balance scale
for my best load,s.

Electronic scales are great for weighing brass & bullets
fast But I Trust the balance scale {An old Reloader Thing}
