    rel-loading tuition required !

    afternoon all

    need a bit of a hand , will some one show me how to home load ? im keen to learn , and have been dependant on factory loads for nearly 10 years and i think its about time to have a go myself .

    i live in norfolk near norwich , and i would love for someone to just show me what i need , equipment etc , and to just basicly show me how to do it !

    im prepared to travel about south norfolk / north suffolk , and just need pointing in the right direction .

    cheers lee

    If you are struggling to get help have a look at your nearest home office approved gun club, they will be shooting on M.O.D. ranges at some point & they will undoubtedly have members who reload all sorts of stuff!

    the book says
    51.5 gr of h1000 (compressed load)
    47 gr of h4831
    44 gr of h4350
    41.5 gr of h414
    40.5 gr of h380
    36 gr of varget
    35.8 gr of h4895
    these loads are from the lee data manual and are MAX loads not starting loads and 10% should be deducted as a start load and then work your way up
    i have never tried any of these loads so im affraid i cant give you any pointers on which will be good
