I am thinking of getting into reloading, since i have gotten into shooting pistols and rifles alot more. I was wondering what all equipment I would need and what reloading manuals you guys use. Also was wondering where some good beginner media on the net would be for me to read up on it. I know that it is not easy and can be dangerous. Thanks for any info guys I appreciate it.

Get a starter kit from RCBS or Lee, and it really isn't hard at all. Just learn the steps to take and follow the load data.

Right now componts are getting hard to find. So if it is just because you can not find ammo reloading may not help. Most make a kit to get you started and yes before you buy any thing get a book most are very good. Read it learn the steps. Get a friend who reloads so you have some one to ask. It may not seem hard for some one who has been doing it but you don't want to make any mistakes these things do go boom.

Thanks for the info, The ammo scare is not really the reason. I am kinda looking for another hobby. I know now a days there really isn't a financial benefit to reloading when and if the prices ever drop back to normal. It will be something for me to do when I get off work at 2 or so in the morning and am not ready to go to bed and so forth.

Then go for it. It is a hobby, time killer for me.

It is also a great pleasure when you squeeze that trigger on a difficult shot and Mr. Deer drops like a rock with a round you loaded just for that rifle.
