I heard you and Captain discussing reloading in the van at Camp McCain. I didn't realize you were so "young" at reloading.

The first round that go bang and not BOOM or pop is a GOOD start. CONGRATS on your first rounds.

IMHO...I'd start with 38 specials and leave the magnum loads alone for a while...

U aint gotta have a Dillon any more than U need a Mercedes for your first car

Buying the best equipment won't necessarily get you the best ammo...

U need to learn WTF you are doing...Use some cheap Lee single stage stuff...You run into problems...figure em out....

all a fancy progressive will do to you right now is potentially frustrate you...plus if it aint set right it will make u a pile of sh!t ammo...in a hurry...what good is that

Learn what you are doing...read reloading manuals..I still am...I've had a Lee turret (neutered) single stage for 25 years...it does everything I need it to do

How much different is compared to pistol. I ordered my press with 9mm and 223 to start with.
rifle is just more case prep. You just need to pay more attention to your powder and your bullet setting.

He did a great job, paid close attention, and was soaking up info like a sponge, also was asking good questions. Heck, his first loaded rounds looked better than my first try over 20yrs ago.
