Thread: Beginners reloading guide please

  1. #1

    Beginners reloading guide please

    As above suggests I'm about to take the plunge. Can anyone suggest the best book I can buy?
    I'm a TOTAL novice and I'm after something that takes the beginner by the hand so to speak, rather than the more advanced textbook style. I very much realise that I've got years of learning ahead, and I need to learn to walk before I try running.
    Apologies for going over old ground, any help will be appreciated.
    Many thanks

    Well when i started off i bought the Lee reloading kit which included the book. I had someone who helped gave me advice but the most was through reserch and trial and error. When your starting out its easy to become paranoid that you are going to do something wrong which could have disastrous consequences. Read the charts, and never go above the max charge. The internets always a good help also. My advice would be to start by finding out what other people are using in the same calibre of rifle you intend to use. Your starting of so dont try and make a super dooper load. Personally im not into fancy loads and listing to people drone on about how fast their bullet goes bores the tits off me. I have my one load and i stick to it. I shoot deer and foxes out to max 300yards, nothing fancy and nothing special needed. A good bullets one your happy with, find it and stick to it.

    I agree. How can you trust what you are being "taught" by someone with no knowledge base behind you? There are a lot of sorry reloaders out there. Better to teach yourself with the Lee book. It's not hard. I have found that most "experienced" reloaders tend to complicate things for novices.~Muir
