Re-Loading Basics

Drak/ALL


RON L here = SERESURPLUS


The Best manuals I can recommend are:

1. RCBS LOading Guide, covers rifle as well as Pistol case reloading, about $30.00

2. Lylan Loading manual, covers same, I like the Pictures better in this one, about $25.00


You might wanna Look at your Local Library? I found a used copy of the Lyman book at a Book sale, got it for like $, plus you can check them out and read what you like best then but that? Never hurts to look, your tax dollars pay for all that!

If you get the Lee Anniversary kit, The one with the manual, a set of the appropriate dies, powder, primers and bullets, plus the cases you've been saving, and you are away-to-the-races.

It's true that you'll upgrade and relace a lot of the stuff in the kit eventually; but the Lee kit will get you started.

The "ABC's of Reloading" is a good book to get before buying anything else.
I started with the Lee Anniversary Kit for 357 mag and 32 H&R mag, good setup.

Real good advice here. Almost every major components company publishes a reloading manual. Most have a detailed chapter on technique. My favorite is the Speer manual, but Hornady, Sierra, Lee, and Lyman also publish excellent tomes. Get a reloading manual from one of these vendors, and you won't be sorry.

I will also say that the ABC's of Reloading is a good guide to get started. The regular manuals are as well.

You can get started, and make good ammunition with the Lee Anniversary kit. There are tons of other choices out there, even getting used equipment.

Overall... Be safe and have fun with it.

For your first press would you go single, turret, or progressive.

1. You are going to be loading mostly handgun in a variety of calibers.
2. You shoot about 200 rounds a week.
3. You work six days a week.
4. Your calibers are .357, .38 special, .38 super, .45, .44 mag, 9mm, .223 & 7.62x39
