Good idea to start early.
What does your Father shoot? What are his shooting goals and habits? Has he dropped any hints? What's your budget?
I suggest you go to your local library and get a copy of "The ABC's of Handloading",
Also these threads may help. So get a large mug of coffee, tea, hot chocolate, whatever you keep on hand when you read and think and read through these.
The "sticky" thread at the top of TheFiringLine's reloading forum is good, entitled, "For the New Reloader: Equipment Basics -- READ THIS FIRST "
The "sticky" thread at the top of TheHighRoad.com's reloading forum is good, entitled, "For the New Reloader: Thinking about Reloading; Equipment Basics -- READ THIS FIRST"
and this one, titled "Interested in reloading"
