Look around your area for an NRA approved hand loading course, and take it.

If none are available, look for an experienced reloader to mentor you.

But also get the ABCs of reloading and the Lyman reloading Manual.

If there is a gun club in your area, they will have tons of expertise. If not, ask the owner of your LGS for advice on finding a course or club.
