Thread: New comer to reloading.

  1. #1

    New comer to reloading.

    A friend of mine got into reloading for his .243 and said the amount of ammo i get through i should start to reload my own.
    For starters is it as easy as he makes out ? how easy is it to ruin my rifles ? could i put myself in danger ?
    I have heard of storys about after using home loads the bolt can be hard to open, i have even heard of cases where the bolt would not open at all.
    Can any of you guys give me any advice on starting home loading and what i should be careful over.
    Many thanks

    hi roebuck are you thinking of reloading for a 270? if so i can help with data ,now onto your questions it really depends on a few things really. i think its one of the easiest things to do .are you practically minded? you can only put yourself in danger if you dont follow simple instructions always start a load safely and work up .the bolt should work fine unless you have put too much pressure from a higher load .give us abit more info on what you want to achieve but i dont think you will look back once starting out safely atb,wayne

    Various organisations offer reloading courses - I did the one at Bisley with the NRA. If you are totally new and have no access to other resources such as an experienced reloader as a friend, taking the course will give you confidence. If you are getting into reloading to save money, be weary of all the gadgets and equipment you can buy

    I reload because I am tight not because I want to shoot single hole groups from concrete benches!

    On that basis it can be done on a shoestring, numerous threads on here, do a search for "reloading on a budget"

    Reloading courses are a great way to empty your wallet if it's too full
    If you can read AND FOLLOW instructions, you can reload.
    In fact, if you shoot a 375 H&H at all frequently, I'm surprised you don't reload already.
    You can't say muntjac without saying, Mmmmmm.

    Hi Roebuck270,
    I'm running a reloading course for the BDS South West of England branch on 21st of May here in the Lyme Regis.
    We have spaces available and it won't be crowded. You would be most welcome to join us for it if you are near enough.
    Please contact me for details if interested.
    Regards Ian

    Harry mac, not got the .375 yet as still waiting for it to turn up, put an order in for 200 rounds of norma oryx, but the shear cost and being able to get hold of the ammo keeps pushing me to thinking about reloading.
    Yorric will see what im doing on the 21st, but maybe a bit far for a day.
    Thanks very much guys.
