Default New loader success!!

Just started loading, and took my first five rounds to the range today and all went perfect!

Triple-double checked everything and then zeroed the scale again and measured another 8 samples prior to putting a round in a primed, charged cartridge.

Never can be to sure, but it felt great afterwards

Good to hear! It is addictive but gives me something to do when I can't hunt!

Buy a book, Hornady,Hodgedon, etc.... Stick to whats in the book and dont trust anything on the web. Buy a decent micrometer and have fun. And yes when in doubt pour it out and weight it again!

What caliber are you loading? If it's a pistol, load up about 200 rounds go to the range and really test it.

Welcome to the world of reloading. I love it. There is no better feeling than the first small group shot with your own loads. Reloading saves a lot of money and is also fun.

One of my favorite parts is when one of my daughters have a boyfriend over. I make sure they somehow come into my office and "Accidentally" see my reloading bench behind my desk.

The press came with the Speer reloading book and that's all I'm using for reference! I'll use the web for functional ideas and just to hear of others experiences.

Thanks!

Starting with .45 ACP then moving to .40 S&W. Now that I confirmed the first few were good I have 100 primed and another 100 or so in the tumbler getting prepped.

Ha! That would be fun to see the reaction! It is fun, takes shooting to a new level of understanding.

I've heard they are a bit more sensitive rounds to reload.
