Thanks Jimbob86, but I need to get the fundamentals down before I get into any of that.
Plus, I live in an upper duplex, and I don't really have a work area to do that kind of stuff.
As I posted earlier today, a Lee hand press, Auto Prime priming tool and Carbide Pistol die set will set you back less than 100 bucks, fit in a shoe box, and save you 50% on your ammo.
It's NOT rocket science. I know a rocket scientist (Lockheed Martin)..... I can't hack the Math. This is more like a recipe. Simple steps with simple tools. Do this.... Then this..... Ensure this.....
This is the Information Age. If a pimply faced YouTuber can show the world how to build an AR15 from scratch, then metallic cartridge reloading should be a cinch! There's people that know more about it than I do on this forum, but I will certainly tell you what I know..... when I started out trying to get into handloading, local handloaders were ..... less than helpful, shall we say.... I vowed never to be "THAT guy". If there is anything I can help you with, let me know.
