I think that I am going to have a go at loading basic accurate enough for stalking rounds for my 243 or 6.5x55,
presumably a a lee loader, bullets, primers and powder is what I require, and nothing else other than a book or manual to start?
Does one have to buy large quantities and what can be sold by post? I keep seeing lots of things for sale on here but I don't really know what I'm looking for.
powder: I presume the Lee loader manual will tell me what type of powder I need in the 'recipes'
primers: are these a standard size for all centre fire we might use for deer? And any better than other makes that I should consider (note that I just want to make a basic round)
bullets: pass, but as long as they are the right calibre, grain and soft point of some sort, anything else to look out for again considering I just want a work like stalking round?
brass: I intend to use once fired cases from my own guns. I gather that ip this means that they are fire formed to my gun and shouldn't need shaping or trimming beyond what the Lee loader will do?
thanks in advance for any help.
