Thanks for the advice. Yes, I do have a guy that is going to show me the ropes before I run wild with it. That is the reason that I never got into reloading in the first place, I had no one to teach me.badshot said:I would say yes you have decent equipment. Now you have to be very careful in loading and pay very close attention to the smallest of details when reloading. Measure everything and double check everything. Remember you are messing with gunpowder capable of creating a very nasty situation very quickly if something bad happens. Pay very close attention to your primers when seating them. Never smoke or have an open fire of any kind around gunpowder. I have never had this happen but I have read about it in that a spark from static electricity from you to your grain scale can happen. This could set your powder off. Do you have someone that can be around to show you the ins and outs for a week or 2?
