just take it slow and easy. you won't learn everything in a day. it takes time to get the hang of it. i have only been doing it by myself for about five years now, and watched and helped my father for years. when you first start doing it, watching others do it or talk about it, it looks easy. when you try some of your first loads, you will make mistakes. part of the learning curve. if you are getting fustrated, then take a breather and try another day or time.

You have the right attitude. I just made a rookie mistake a week ago. I've been loading for 8 yrs. I accidentally used 270 wsm load info instead of 270 win. Didn't have any bullets seated but sucked to have to dump out each round and re measure

Exactly my point. Taught me a lesson. Don't get complacent. Glad I caught it, as I was reaching higher loads.

check and check again. if not sure, start over. get into a procedure and follow it and double check yourself to be on the safe side. remember reloading is a safe and enjoyable hobbie if done correctly, but very dangerous if not. do not use more than one powder at a time. if you want to reload 10 shells with powder "A" and 10 with powder "B", then only use one at a time and only keep one on your bench at a time so they don't accidently get mixed up. my powders are kept on the bottom shelf of my bench, and only one at time is on the top when reloading.
