Thread: Reloading

    Reloading

    I want to start reloading 17 Remington brass. A bit apprehensive about It though, I know they're many books on reloading and videos on the net. But I was wondering If any forum members local to me, or in the Glasgow-Stirlingshire area could show me the ropes. Always better with a practical tuition opposed to a reading from a book. "well me anyway". I still have to purchase reloading equipment so will need advice on that aspect also.

    So. The question is this: How do you know that the person showing you the ropes, knows the ropes? You will NOT be able to get away from the reading so get used to the idea. Buy a good book on the subject and follow the instructions. Millions of reloaders have taught themselves. You might as well be the next.~Muir

    (Reloading safe, accurate cartridges is easy. Follow the instructions to the letter, start with minimum loads. Instant success. If I can do it......)

    Remove the old primer, clean, resize, trim, de-burr and re-prime the case. Measure and pour the powder charge and seat the new bullet. Ok there are a few nuances but that's what books are for. I've recently started hand-loading and it's straightforward.

    It doesn't have to be. Think 'minimalist' Simple press. dies. scale. trimmer. primer seater. Here in the US that's about $150.~Muir

    Smart move.
    If you can pick up Lee's book "Modern Reloading Volume II" you will find a lot of information on the bits and pieces. HE gives a good treatise on powder handling and pressures as well. I will concede that learning how to load on the 17Rem might be a tad more difficult as many 17 cal parts (funnels, case trimmer pilots) need to be scrounged. Lee themselves do not do a lot of 17 cal parts IIRC. At least not the trimmer studs. Otherwise, they have all the stuff and 1967 Spud can probably set you up with all of the above.

    Welcome (in advance) to a sport that has given me much satisfaction for almost 4 decades. I have confidence that you can do fine flying solo.~Muir

    Hi there Penta
    I live just outside Stanley near perth if you are over my way i can go through the process with you, just finishing of my new gunroom at the moment but will be ready soon
    i have the rcbs rockchucker supreme, which is pretty expensive but the Lee kit does the same job at a fraction of the price, its a personal choice, if you want to drop over send me a pm
