    New to reloading

    Morning...
    As you can see I`m new here and I `m new to reloading and my new Gen 4 17 will be coming in soon, hum that`s lots a new things. Anyway I`m looking to reload 9mm for now and 45 as time goes on. I don`t think I`ll reload more than 500 per month.

    I`m looking for a reasonably priced reloading setup but as I said I`m new so what`s the first thing to do, and where is a good place to purchase the equiptment? I just read that a member purchased at Midway, or where should I be looking and what do you think the initial investment will be? Thanks

    I am sure that if you do your reading that your decision on which press will be the best one for you.

    Since you have some reading time till the G17 gets there, might I suggest you start with getting familiar with the ammo component side of reloading. To know the different components, weights, sizes, and amounts is the other half of reloading ... Google reloading manuals, charts, etc. and I am sure you will find some useful reading.

    I would recommend going to www.midwayusa.com. If you are considering possibly reloading different calibers I would get a Lee Turret press kit to start with. You can always graduate to a more elaborate press once you get more involved into reloading. I just bought a second one from them last week for $107.99. You will also need to buy the Safety primer attachment if you want to install primers with the press. Some choose to do this operation by hand. Either way you will need a primer tool of some sort. If you go with this kit you will need to get the Auto disk powder measure riser. It doesn't come with the kit, but it is a must. They don't explain that well when you look at the specs. You will need some more tools to complete the set up and I wont go into detail on that here. There are multiple threads on that in the reloading section to cover that. I like the Lee press. There are better presses out there that are more expensive, but this one works well, easy to use, easy to change calibers, and is fairly inexpensive.

    As Otintx said a little research goes a long way, and considering you came here and asked I assume you are at that stage now. Youtube has several good videos with guys giving their opinions on presses as well as the how to's.

    Midwayusa.com has reloading components as well at as good of a price as anywhere else give or take a little. I have been using the Ranier plated bullets for target practice with good results. I would recommend that you find a local source for powder. Its get pricey ordering powder online and paying she shipping with the hazmat fees that get tacked on to it.
    Don't retreat! Reload!!!

    Thanks for the offer I`ll let you know as I get some of this sorted out. I`m not looking to break the bank but I`ve had experience buying with my many hobbies and there is always a sweet spot when buying, in that you don`t get the cheapest or the most expensive, there is the best value somewhere in all the hype, it gets the job done right but doesn`t have all the bells a whistles.

    Yes it is. Some stuff I can save you money on some....well, not so much. Just depends. Also, depends on the manufacturer some I can save more on than others. It won't cost you anything to shoot me a PM and find out right? Like I said some more than others. Dies usually not so much. I can normally save you more on presses and the like. Some as much as a couple hundred $ say the Dillon 1050 for example. I can save you money on that but then less expensive models obviously don't have as much mark up and the savings isn't as much.

    You get the idea no need to ramble. Shop around then ask me and I will shoot you my price. Go with the best one.
