    We decided to take the plunge into reloading. One of the ranges let us come and grab some brass off the ground since we shoot there often. We cleaned the brass and now are in the process of inspecting, depriming and repriming.

    I would start with a single stage press, they are not overly expensive and you can learn each stage of the process very intimately, before you get really involved. I started 17 yrs ago with a hornady press kit, I feel that the Hornady load manuals offer outstanding info. I have thought about a progressive press but am not sold on the powder dump process. I am VERY anal about the powder measure. I now have a Redding T-7 Turret press and turn out lots of ammo. It is still very time consuming but I enjoy doing it. I still use my original press for sizing my .40 brass with the Redding GRX die. I have heard good things about the Hornady progressive press. As for components on line, unless you are purchasing large quantities, I would buy at a local store and save the hazmat charges. Start small and build up, its a very fun process!

I bought it all so I'd have it to pass on to the kids if it comes to the point that it's the only way to obtain reliable ammo.

    Soooo, I need to start learning to reload, and to practice so I can develop the skill in order to pass it on. The problem? I'm a lazy sumbitch.

    ...So I guess I don't have any useful thoughts for you after all. My bad.
    So get in the Cave and start learning how it works, it ain't rocket science! you have the equipt. Git R Done! Lots of help out here if you get stuck. have fun! Just be careful with the powder charge!

    hand gun reloading

    I have been reloading for my rifles and enjoy it a lot. We recently bought a Ruger p95 9mm and a LCP 380. I want to start reloading for these two pistols.
    I ask other shooters at the range if I can have their brass if I see them shooting 9mm. I am trying to build up my supply of brass before beginning to reload. I'm really looking forward to the improvement in accuracy in our pistols. Reloading rifle ammo improved the accuracy of our rifles.
    We are taking our chl training in Jan.

    oops!

    I forgot to mention I use a RCBS rock chucker kit. This is what my mentor used and I like to be consistent.

    Having a mentor for reloading has helped me greatly. I highly recommend having one if you're new to reloading.
