Don't be intimidated by reloading, nor feel that you can just slide your way into it.
It is a process, it has many interesting quirks that are similar to those that you may find in Automotive Mechanics, but unique in it's form or substance to the process of reloading. (e.g. loose primer pocket, double charge)
Things can go horribly wrong, but these are usually related to process and the quality of executing the process. Things can also go very well, with a minumum of materials used to produce quality reloads.
In years past, I reloaded extensivily, then took a break, then resumed recently. I was reminded of the need to establish and follow my processes. A simple double check of the scale increments would have saved me a scare. My process of loading only two cartridges for test fire saved me a box of overcharged reloads.
As the others noted, read a manual or several. YouTube movies may also be helpful.
But when it comes down to it, make sure you understand the step, why that step is important, what the consequences are of not executing the step flawlessly and how that step fits in with the others.
As a Master Mechanic, you certainly have the manual skills, most likely the mental skills
Experience, of course comes only with .. uh .. experience, but you can really get a leg up by making it an full imersion hobby. Read, Read, Read ....
