There are more places to buy reloading gear than at Cabelas. Check around for delivered prices and keep it simple to start. Pick out 1 cartridge to load and learn from there.

check out Midway and MidSouth Shooters Supply. both of these carry anything related to reloading and carry all the brands. plus they carry all kinds of brass for even a lot of oddball calibers. they both have great service and fast shipping. i use both of them. if you place an order with them, you can get free catalogs too. i have bought lots of my reloading equipment from them.

if you need powder and primer, if possible try to source it local, because if you order it, they charge you a $25 hazmat fee on top of the order to ship it.

if possible order a complete kit from Lee or RCBS and the only thing that you need is the dies, powder, primers, and bullets to start reloading.

also see about finding that book others suggested, ABC's of Reloading, excellent book, i have it and find lots of information that is truly helpful in it. another good book is the reloading manual by Lee, it also has a lot of information in it about reloading. and also buy several different reloading manuals, Sierra, Speer, Hornady, Nosler, ect. ect. reason is, some will carry different calibers and loads the others don't, plus some carry different powders than others. good luck.

I cant reload fast enough to suit the youngest and wife...between the two i hardly get any time behind the guns anymore. I NEED to get a Mark II!!

But yeah, the wifes supports my addiction...she sees/has seen too many folks addicted to drugs/alcohol/cigarettes.....whenever she starts to think about going on/off about the cost of this addiction she understands it could be something else/much worse i could be addicted to.

Instead of roaming the streets/pissing paychecks down the urinal at the bars/strip clubs, i am in my basement reloading or at a gun show/gun shop or at the range. (with her or the youngest)

i wanted the Mk II, but i ended up buying the Mk III one day when i was picking up a scope i had ordered. it kept whispering, buy me, buy me! so i did. i had been wanting to buy one for years anyways.
