Wow, join 28 jan with the location "middle Tennessee" and ask about reloading right off the bat.... And your question is answered by a guy who joins right after with the location "middle Tennessee"

I'm guessing same person multiple accounts, or this is just guerrilla add campaign for the gun shop listed, trying to drum up a "word of mouth" reputation.

Would a moderator care to look at originating IPs? I could be wrong, and I hope I am, because I hate to see unethical behavior in the firearms community.

I just started myself, my advice is to read everything about it that you can. I'm finding it's not nearly as difficult as I thought it would be.

48 years and counting/it's been an interesting hobby

When I begin all we had were a few (very few) books and ourself to depend on, there was no help, with a large dose of common sense we learned as we went. I've never had a pierced primer nor blown primer nor a case separation, I should add no blown up rifles nor pistols either. We had Jack O'Connor, Elmer Keith along with Hatcher and his note book, our manuals such as they were were the very early Hodgdon guides. We read everything we could put our hand on, many articles were in Outdoor Life which O'Connor wrote plus he was the shooting editor. Much of this hobby is learn as you go, mostly it is the reading that will help keep you out of trouble. Learn what extrapolate means, that is a fancy word for guessing, above all be cautious..

Jimro I am not the same guy asking for help. I also have no ties to the gun shop. I took his class and learned more than I did from reading books. Just trying to help a fellow middle tennessee reloader.

Welcome Icedragon!
What caliber/s are you looking to reload and which press did you purchase?

I've been loading for about 8 years now, but I only have first-hand experience with the Dillon RL550B and loading .45ACP. I'm by no means an expert and I would likely be less than informative when it comes to rifle reloading, but you would be welcome to join me and see what I do with .45.
