    Hello everyone,

    I just ordered my first reloading kit from Lee. I chose the Lee 50th anniversary kit after researching and hearing that it is a good kit to start with. I have been shooting occasionally now for 2 years and would like to get to know more about all the components that go with producing an ammo and the effects of powder, bullet weight, etc.

    I currently own a Taurus PT45 (45ACP) hand gun, Savage .22 Mag rifle, and a Vanguard 300 Weatherby Mag rifle. The Weatherby gets a bit expensive shooting, buying off the shelf ammunition, so I wanted to see if I can save some money and shoot more at the same time by reloading my own ammunition.

    I hope to learn from more experience reloaders and shooters and appreciate any suggestions, help, and or criticism because it can only make me a better reloader/shooter. Thanks.

    Welcome, Reckless!! As you can see, you are surrounded. But don't come out with your hands up. You are among the most knowledgeable, experienced, and sharing folks that ever tripped a trigger. Not a bad place to be. I've floated around this site just a little in the past couple months, and find more answers than I have questions. These folks are all here for the same reason, to share and learn, and teach about our common interests. Enjoy the ride.
