i think what the OP was trying to get across was, if a person is interested in reloading, and wanting to get into it, read the book, "ABC's of Reloading", as i bought mine several years ago, and there is wealth of information in this book for beginners and veteran reloaders. this was the first book i bought when i wanted to learn how, and still refer to from time to time. the generic question that the OP was probably refering to, " i want to start reloading, what do i need?" comes up very often. get this book, it will tell you what you need, give the basics on the reloading process, and has much needed safety information that should be followed to the letter. without the book and some general idea as to what is involved, we can tell you how, but it will probably sound like quatum physics to a layman! i have been reloading for about 4-5 years now, but watched and helped my father many years ago. i still have questions from time to time myself, but having the basic understanding, i know what someone is talking about when it's explained to me. i concur with the OP, buy the book, "ABC's of Reloading" buy several reloading manuals, (one i recommend, Richard Lee's Reloading Manual, lots of good basic information for the beginner also) and read them cover to cover several times, then ask questions on what isn't making sense.
