Well, you need a press, dies for the caliber, a .1 grain resolution scale, calipers at the very least.I am thinking about starting to reload my ammo. I have never done this before. Any pointers from you pros would be appreciated.
What equipment is needed?
What tools are needed?
What supplies - your brand recommendations?
How long does it take to load a 1000rds?
Any special technique more successful than others?
Any safety concerns to be aware of?
Mistakes noobs make.
Yep, that pretty much sums it up. Deactivate the auto index and use it like a single stage press, activate auto indexing and every time you pull the handle it performs a operation, turns the turret to a different die and performs a operation one round at a time.Chavo and others, I've a easy question. I know a single stage does one operation at a time. I have a progressive that does all stages with each pull of the handle. I'm not sure what a turret press is. I've think I saw one with room for 1 shell, but 4 dies above. Do I understand correctly that you can run 100 shells thru for sizeing, then turn the turret and do the next 100, or you could put 1 shell in, pull the handle, turn the turret, pull the handle... 3-4 times and produce one round? It sounds like that would be great for working up loads or testing new compents.
So am I understanding this term?
