Hey guys,
I need some help/advice from all of you reloading gurus. I have never tried reloading (rifle cartridges) before, but I am interested in learning how. Can u fellas please give me some good advice/information to a young man trying to get started? It needs to be very basic as far as terminology and advice because I know NOTHING about it yet. When learning something for the first time, ask the best!!! Thank you guys!!

Buy some reloading manuals and educate yourself first.

That will work but a Video /CD will do better. RCBS has a good one ,there are others.Might find one at Gander Mtn in there reloading sction.Or you could get both.

Good ideal to get one,Manual, form the Bullet company your thinking of using frist. New ones are coming out from Barnes #4 and Nosler #6 would wait till they get out for those.Lymans is good as well however about any of them will have the basics covered.

This way you can see if it is for you without the cost of the equipement.***15810***

Study alot and find someone who knows what they are doing if possible and get a lesson or two before reloading.
Buy US made products, your job may be next!

I'd be a bit worried about the ashtray next to the powder measure ;\)
I taught myself how to roll my own after reading several manuals and all the instructions in every piece of reloading equipment. I didn't know anyone at the time who handloaded. Since you already know how to load pistol cals you can transition directl into bottle-necked rifle cartridges and leave out the expanding step for handguns(only for bottle-necked rifle shells tho)

After you do all the research, come back and ask lots of questions.

You don't want to screw up a rifle load.
Is a country that would re-elect Baroke Hussein Owebama really worth saving?
