How to load my own ammo?
 
I live in central Wisconsin and can't seem to find a place to learn how to load my own ammo, even some of the places that sell the equipment to load have no idea where I can go to learn how to use the equipment they want to sell me....any ideas?

Pretty much all of the things ive learned about reloading has either been from reading or online. I bought a prees and all the other items I needed a few months ago and I just this past week made my first rounds. Get the ABC's of reloading and start reading. It will show you how to set up and what to do and what to look for. Im not the best reloader but I was in the same boat as you are. No one I know reloads and really didnt know where to start. Hope this helps.

there are many great books on reloading. a reloaders first purchase should be a book on reloading.

Lots of books out there.
And lots of youtube videos to backup the books.
Youtube's got videos on just about anything you want to know how to do.

+1 on the book. You can learn everything you need from a good book. When you start reloadiing use starting load data. Then work up to max if you like. But max is max. Dont go beyond it.

the book, The ABC's Of Reloading is an excellent book to learm many of the basics of reloading. it will walk through the process step by step. pay very close attention to all the safety guidelines and procedures, as they are there for very good reason, your safety.

reloading can be a very safe hobby or addition to shooting if done properly and safely. if not, there is the potential to do great harm to yourself and others. again and i can not stress this enough, follow he procedures and work safely.

buy and read several load data books. one of my favorites is Lee's Modern Reloading data load book. it's a load data book along with it goes into much detail about the reloading process. lots of good information in that book.

first thing, get the ABC's of Reloading and read it then reread it several more times. then if you have any questions come back here and ask them.
