I have a birthday coming up and have convinced the family to buy me a reloader. I will only be reloading pistol ammo. Mainly 9mm, .40s$w, .44 mag and .45. I am mechanically inclined so i want for than a single stage press. I would like something that will last me a while and will let me reload multiple calibers.
Like I said, I'm a newbie to reloading so I know squat. What manuals or books should I read on this.
Finally what press do you all recommend. It should cost around 300 dollars.
Thanks for any info you can offer.
I agree with the others. Get the best that you possibly afford, and with extensive reading and research about reloading. The even have VCR tapes to show you the fundamentals of reloading. I leaned many years ago at a friends house that was a reloader. It is another way to learn, remember when in doubt, STOP READ ASK QUESTIONS. Be safe and enjoy years of satisfaction knowing the loads you put together are custom by you.
