I don't believe age has anything to do with it..I know someone that started reloading in his 60's & is on his second press. He keeps blaming his equipment. He doesn't read directions. I haven't seen him produce 100 good rounds yet. I'm trying to talk him out of reloading.
It helps if you have the temperament for reloading. It takes a lot of patience to get started correctly. Being organized is a big plus.
