    Certainly a great write-up, Janvier. I thinkl you've captured the spirit of reloading rather well. The pics were a great touch. I think you've touched on the major issues of basic reloading.

    FWIW, if you’re concerned about getting your tumbler media unnecessarily dirty, save up old (used) dryer sheets (that cut static). Every so often, cut about 3 or 4 dryer sheets up into 2-inch squares and tumble them in your media. Notice how much crud they will be caked with after an hour of two. This will extend the life of your media in a HUGE way.

    Wow! A very informative (and oddly sentimental) post and I like the pictures; nice touch. The process doesn't seem as difficult as I imagined it to be (I don't know anyone that reloads, so I've never seen the process). But what does all of that equipment cost?

    Will this be made a sticky? I think it's a good introduction to reloading; and the pictures, for those of us who are less inclined to read large chunks of words, are very helpful.

    It can be even easier than you see, if you are less anal than me. (Rhyming partially unintentional.)

    I started out with the RCBS Rock Chucker Supreme Master Reloading Kit, which can be had for around $300. It may seem a bit much, but it gives you lots of equipment and it's very good quality for the most part. You can save by buying everything individually, picking out your own tools. You can save a lot by using the Lee Hand Press; it might save you around $100 over a heavy bench mounted press, and it's portable. Then you will have to add a few things like dies, shell holder, calipers, tumbler, trimmer, and a couple small tools. Most of those are inexpensive. Especially juxtaposed with your tiny groups.

    And thanks for the feedback!

    Use Solvent for shell wash process.

    Instead of using water and soap which can leave contamination on your brass you can use a solvent in the dip wash process. The beauthy to this process is that your shells are really clean and dry almost instantly :wink:
