I was recently GIVEN a Lyman press, scale, powder trickler, and some dies by a friend. They'd belonged to his dad.

I have never reloaded before. Can anyone recommend a good source of info? Book? DVD? other?

Thanks!

How do you get started...hmmm lets see...

Step #1. Go to your Bank

Step #2. Withdraw your savings.

Step #3. Explain to your wife how "reloading is an investment that will save money in the long run".

Step #4. Endlessly buy equipment.

Step #5. Once you have bought everything you need, then spend a little more to upgrade the equipment that you just bought. This is of course because you are now realizing the original stuff you bought was "cheap",(even though it cost you more than 10 boxes of brand new shells).

Step #6. Search the internet until at least 1 or maybe 2 in the morning a few nights of the week. This way you will understand what you don't already know about reloading.

Step #7. Buy more equipment.

Step #8. Start staying home from work for "just one day" so you can get some reloading done.(And search the internet for some more "answers").



How will you know when you are a "RELOADER"

When you see the UPS man leaving your house when you come home from work for the fifth day in a row. Then you walk in the door and expect to hear your wife yelling about all the money you are spending on your investment. But instead she is laying in bed smoking a cigarete.

Then you remember that you weren't even expecting any packages this week!
