who can and want to guide me in reloading

Hi,

I am from the Netherlands and new to reloading. I bought a complete reloading set incl a set of Forster ultra bulletseater, Fl-die and neckbump dies. I have read a lot on forums but am little scared to start without guidance. Here in NL reloading is not so common and find nobody who can guide me, in special with these type of dies. So how to set up and use i have doubt how to use and setup the different dies. I have new Lapua Brass for instance, but don't know what and how to start with them. I want to start reloading because i hunt in a more open area and want to shoot better on extended distances, with factoryload very difficult to get te precision i want. Who want to help me. Special got doubt after reading on forums about the neckbumpdies of forster i bought. I don't know if and how to use them. Greetings Mark

Guys English is not his first language, DO NOT use acrimony, until we are sure he knows their meaning, being new to reloading we dont want him to have an accident.

I'm willing to help, either in this thread or email me at nksmfamjp@yahoo.com.

I have some experience with RCBS single stage equipment and a lot more experience with the Hornady LNL AP press. I think all single stage equip generally operates on the same principles so dies are interchangeable.

I reload for 2 rifle, and 5 pistol calibers.

It sounds like you are starting well. Please tell us you components and reloading tools. Please be sure to list brand and model name.

Re: who can and want to guide me in reloading

A lot of good info on Youtube. I to was nervous when starting out, piece of cake now. Tell us more about what you have. Also what calibers? I load from a .223 Remington all the way up to a 30-378 Weatherby Magnum.

Welcome aboard Mark!! You came to the right place, there is a wealth of knowledge to be had here. These guys all know their stuff and are willing to help. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Get some good reloading manuals and read them cover to cover. Hopefully you'll have more confidence than I did on my first reload, I crawled under the bench to touch off that first round.
Good luck!!

Re: who can and want to guide me in reloading

Welcome

First you don't need to use your sizing dies with new Lapua brass, just load and shoot

BUT, you need to start with a safe load which you will get from MANUALS and reloading data

Do you have a reloading manual? If not, let us know what

Caliber
Bullet you want to shoot
Powder you have
Primer you are using

and you will get some guidance
