What exactly do I need to start reloading? This is a question I read on internet message boards and hear a lot and in gun stores. Well it is not much when you get down to it. This also depends on many different factors. Do you want a large amount of loaded ammo for pistol practice and competition? Are you just going to the range once or twice a month to shoot your rifle at some paper commies?
