A couple of weeks ago SayUncle asked for advice on getting started reloading. The comments are worth reading if you are thinking about reloading, as I am.

    Reloading is easy. I have a Lee basic press to do rifle reloads and a Dillon press for pistol. The start up cost can be high depending on the press and how many calibers die you want to buy. The saving however is huge. I load match rifle ammo at around 50 cents. The something that is close to my reload it cost $1.50 per round.

    For people that is getting into guns. Always save your brass. Always. Because you never know when you're going to reuse them.

    Interested in getting into reloading? I have written a short e-book on the minimum equipment needed and its purpose. You can download a copy for a mobipocket reader through an Amazon affiliate from the link below for $.99

    or you can download a regular .txt or .doc file from this link for the same price.
