New at reloading could use some help !

Postby Hddreamer » Wed May 16, 2012 11:23 am

As I stated I'm gonna start reloading my 9mm shells
I don't have a clue about it but willing to learn as far as books go forget about it , can't stand to read , as soon as I turn the page it's forgotten I could do DVDs if theres any good ones out there
Anyhow what I need to know is what's the best to use for example press, scale, primers , bullets (no lead)
Basically everything but I want to buy the best with the least amount of trouble and easiest to use

Thanks any help would be appreciated[/i]

Generally speaking, reloading is pretty much idiot-proof, as long as you follow the load-data in your manuals.

Screw in the dies to the specifications set in the pamphlet they will come with, lube your cases (or if carbide dies, no lube), size & deprime (one step process), prime, charge with powder charge, seat bullet to appropriate depth (according to cartridge OverAll Length "OAL").

It's not hard at all. Just stick to published data, and pay attention. :)

So I guess carbide dies would be the way to go ? What about single stage or progressive and all other equipment ?

You'll have to read some and make some decisions yourself.
(Load data doesn't come to you by hypnosis, you'll eventually have to read it from some data source, whether it be hard copy or webpage.)
I can sit with you and run through some of the basics, if you can make it down to Branford this weekend. I have all the gear needed to reload 9x19mm or you can bring what you have (brass, bullets, primers etc) and go home with some useable ammo.

You can reload as simply as below:

The type of setup you create is pretty much determined by what you want and what you can afford.

Oh... I happened across this link, but if you don't want to read, don't open it!:
