Reloading ammo for a newbie
 
I am thinking about getting into reloading my own ammo, and really don't have any idea where to start or get information on what equip. I need and what is good and what to avoid. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Buy a reloading manuel (or 2) and read it cover to cover before you even buy equipment.

For me I'm new to reloading and all of my spare time is going to it so I'm still eating up any and all info I can. My best advice for a newbie is since Christmas is comming get you a list together soon your running out of time I've already got mine in .one on my list is a spotting scope man I'm wearing out my 4 wheller checking targets. Do a lot of research before you buy a setup . I bought the Lee master loader but I wish I would of spent the $ on a better quality like RCBS . Have fun always start low and work up . Oh and you don't have to have a progressive , I have one and use it as a single stage press .

Step 1- go buy a copy of of The ABCs of Reloading. Read it before you buy anything.

Fixed it for you. There's some scary people out there who shouldn't be passing on their skills.
On this same line, check your local gun stores and maybe the local gun club for classes. I know our local Sportsman's Warehouse offers classes, or at least they did (haven't really noticed lately).

get a copy of the Lyman reloading manual.

That's the manual I used as a text book when I taught reloading classes, and I still consider it the best for a new reloader.:)
