Interested in reloading

I have never reloaded any ammo. I am interested in learning reloading. Can anyone provide a list or a link to a list of the individual components necessary for reloading. I shoot 9mm, 45 ACP, 223 and 308 rounds.

Re: Interested in reloading

You'll probably get some slightly different answers on this but here's what I'd be looking at:



Rock Chucker Supreme Kit: http://www.midwayusa.com/product/937...tage-press-kit

Set of Dies (a set for each caliber): RCBS 2-Die Set 223 Remington

Shell Holder for press and priming tool (same shell holder used for both). You need a holder that fits your specific case. http://www.midwayusa.com/product/797...-223-remington

Lee Case Trimming Tools: Case Trimming Tools - Lee Precision

Components:
Instructional DVD: http://www.midwayusa.com/product/877...-reloading-dvd

With these, you can load till your blue in the face and make ammo that will help you shoot like a pro. The links are just an example. You can can often find many of these things locally or may find better pricing elsewhere. I'd recommend sitting in with a buddy once just to see it done.

Just some friendly advice... if you use the RCBS hand priming tool (and I do), read and follow the instructions. This video may be helpful.

Re: Interested in reloading

Good luck with your new hobby - I started a few years ago and really enjoy it. In looking at your list of loads, I am guessing you are reloading in some volume (not just a box at a time). If this is the case, I would highly recommend looking at the Hornady Lock & Load AP progressive press (witout all the casefeeder and bulletfeeder stuff). I started out with this set-up and found it pretty easy to set up and very reliable. It also came with a pretty good set-up DVD.

I did a LOT of internet research before getting started, and was able to glean a lot of knowledge from reloading vetetens on this site and some others. Accurate Reloading was another place with good forums and a good search function.

Main thing - double check your double checks to load safely. Hope you enjoy your new money and time suck!!
