Re: Want to try my hand at reloading
Most of the reloading manuals (Nosler, Hogden etc) do have a step by step guide in them to help you along. Buy one of these and read it at least twice to make sure you understand what is required. When I started reloading i did a deal with the equipmemt retailer, he would show me on a one to one basis how to use the kit he was selling me, that only took half a day. On the equipment side a RCBS Rockchuker press, a powder scale to accuratly measure your powder weights, a powder dispenser, (RCBS whilst not the best is a good point to start, in my opinion the best is Harell if you only want to buy once) A set of full length dies for each caliber (also come with full instructions), a Lee hand priming tool. A good vernier gauge to measure length of finished rounds is also a must. that lot with a small powder funnel and powder trickler will get you started.
Welcome to a very addictive hobby, please start you loads for a given caliber at least 10 per cent lower than those recommeded in the manuals and work them up slowly looking for pressure signs etc. If you run into problems I am sure that the guys here will help.
