This is such a good post but sadly photobucket has stopped the photos being posted. Any chance that Site Admin are able to embed them (if that's the right term)?
This is a great thread but i'd advise you to get a good book on reloading (not just the data but the theory and process) and read it.~MuirAs someone who recently inherited a press , various dies and an RCBS ChargeMaster I'll soon be reloading for my .270 and my .204. I've been all over the web looking stuff up and watching videos on the subject and this thread has given more useful and straightforward info than any of the rest of it has, other than 'recipes' for my own particular calibres. Thank You !
As above ... if a similarly straightforward guide to comparators and OAL were to be posted I'd be doubly grateful.
Some people describe it as almost therapeutic ? I am keen to learn and think this course will inspire me further , concerned about my own ability and trusting the method. A good book will aid me as suggested.Matt - I have been reloading for nearly 40 years and despite having a mountain of kit you still find another little doodad that you can't live without.
Am sure others will chime in but Muir's advice on getting a good book is essential for starters. The Lee book is very good, user 'spice' has/had copies for sale in the classifieds.
I also suggest you start off with what you will end up with. I was always an RCBS fan and still am but Dillon make the best progressives and Lee dies have much going for them.
Enjoy your course and enjoy safe reloading. It gives me nearly as much pleasure as shooting these days.
