I am looking in the future to buy more firearms but right now this is what I am reloading. I was looking at the Dillan 550 B progressive reloader. CCI 400 primers, and Hodgdon Varget powder. I saw good reports on all of these but I want more oppinions. I have a queston too (and please remember I am new to this), can you use that same powder and primer typse on all five of the calibers? I haven't paid too much attention to bullets yet though so any advice there too would be helpful. So please any help, advice, or constructive critisism would be nice. Thank you
Welcome from one newbie to another. Since I see you plan on reloading your own ammunition (a very good idea for many reasons I'm sure you'll discover later), and if at some point in time you become smitten by the accuracy bug, (you'll know it when it happens) there is one more book I would highly recommend. "The Accurate Rifle" by Warren Page.
It's written in a style that almost all shooters will find to be entertaining reading, but technical enough to be of benefit to even the experienced shooter. Amazon still shows it as being in print and I think you'll find yourself going back to it on many occasions even after you have read it the first time. Money well spent IMHO.
