New to reloading
 
I'm kinda interested to enter the reloading world. I'm totally blind about what are the processes, equipments or where to buy.
Can anyone kind enough to point the right directions? Like for a start, links of reloading 101, where to buy from, what brands of equipments or what are the must to own equipments?
Mostly i will be reloading .223/5.56.
Thank you for any inputs :)
Have a nice weekend guys.

very first purchase: ABC's of reloading http://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=the+abc+of+reloading&tag=mh0b-20&index=aps&hvadid=24136686&ref=pd_sl_3juy1x993i_ e

once you have gone through that then you will have a better basis of what questions to ask :)

+1. Must read ABCs of reloading. It'll help answer a lot of questions. IMHO, I would also say get a reloading manual and read it cover to cover as well. Any one of Hornady, Lyman or Sierra. I like all three of those, but I would pick one o those to go with your ABC book and it should just about cover everything.

I will say though, in the beginning, get either a SS or a turret press. That way you can go slow through the steps and learn them before stepping up to a progressive. I love my SS. Probably won't get anything else.

ABC's is a must first purchase. I listened to these guys bought it and it answered a ton of questions. I bought a Lee turret set up for my first press. I use it as a single stage press and kinda feel I my never use it a a full turret it works great and I take my time.

Find a friend or acquaintance (that you trust) that hand loads if you can. There's no substitute for "hands on" training.:)
