    Best advice I can offer is buy a reloading manual and read it then go to the back and find most accurate powder tested with the weight/design bullet you want to try and start at reccommended powdercharge and work your way up slowly (half grain increments) until you see pressure signs, then back it off a half grain to be safe. See how it shootsand start tweaking till you get the desired accuracy

    You'd probably get a lot more replies to this thread in the "Reloading section" about 1/2 way down the main page....

    I feel the Hornady 7th or 8th edition would be an exelent choice. It's an easier read than Nosler, Barnes, Sierra etc imo.
    Also order a Cabellas Shooting mag. & study the reloading equipment, & descriptions. Pictures help.
    There's kits available from many, but most "kits" are very basic, & you'll eventually need to tailor your equipment to your needs vs whatever the "kit" comes with. But it'll get you started.
    RCBS, & Hornady offer very simmilar starter kits. There are cheaper brands, but I wouldn't recomend scrimping on equipment.
    Good luck
