Here is the situation. (It's complicated) I have decided to start reloading. I only have to the 17'th to pick out the equipment to buy. Another pice to the puzzle is I can only buy from the bass pro shop web sight. The kits they have are. Lee breech lock challenger kit (preferred bc it's cheapest I'm on a tight budget and the lee kit is under $200), Lyman crusher expert deluxe, Lyman t-mag expert deluxe, rcbs rock chucker supreme master, hornady lock-n-load classic. Now before you say it and we all know someone was about to. "Read the stickies and the abcs of reloading" I have read the stickies. But I still have not figured out my answer. Maybe I over looked it or it just dint stick. (I made a joke lol). I ordered the abcs of reloading and it will arrive at my house on the 11th. Bad thing is I won't be home until the 13th. Then it's off to a weekend of hunting. Sadly this will be the only opportunity for me to hunt this year do to work. So calling it off to read the abcs is out of the question. So between now and the 17th I don't thank I am going to have time to read and understand the abcs. I will read and understand the abcs before I load tho. "Don't wont to blow my face off" So I am hoping I can leave it to y'all to decide for me. Here are some things to help y'all help me. 1. I have never reloaded before and don't know anyone that dose. 2. I am decently but not perfectly mechanically inclined. (Read something about it in the stickies) 3. I try to get to the range at least once every 2 months. I work out of town 21 days straight then I come home for 7 days. So every 2 months is good for me. Wish I could go every other week but I can't. 4. I will be reloading for pistol and rifle. 5. Currently my reloading calibers are .45acp,. 223/5.56, 30-06, 30-30. But I will be adding others .40, 9mm, .357sig, 10mm, .357 mag/.38spl, .44mag/.44spl, 308, 45-70, 7.62x39, 6.5 Grendel and anything elts I buy before I die. 6. I will be reloading for plinking, accuracy, carry ammo, hunting, long range (400 yards) and to stock up for SHTF. And any classes I might take. 7. I am not worried about speed. I will not be going through 500 rounds every weekend. So I can take my time loading. Thanks for the help guys.
