reloading

Today I will be getting my NEW Lee turret press kit and the reloading book I ordered I am excited and want to use it today but alas I need some things like powder and lead. Does anyone know of a place to buy cheap brass for a .45 acp. Bought my Press for 119.00 from Cabellas.

all i can recommend if you are new to reloading is READ THE BOOK!the info in the front of the book is very important in order to be safe.remember,you are building controlled explosives that can blow up a gun...

each gun is differant when it comes to ammo and how it handles differant loads even with the same gun and cal . i have to agree with paws read the book then reread it . as a sample my hand loaded 44 mag rounds for my new model blackhawk 7 1/2 are 20grs of 2400 powder with a 250 gr cast bullet and it shoots so well with these i can hit clays sitting out to 200 meters and my hunting loads are 240 gr jhp over 21.5 of 2400 they shoot just as well as the cast they dont shoot as well in a friends 44 mag . my opinon is when starting out use a powder that fills 3/4 of the case so you dont double charge and i weight every 10 rounds to check the powder charge and put your charged brass in a loading block and look at them to make sure all have the same amount of powder if they dont look the same dump them and start over just to be safe you ll just have to work with powered charges and differant bullets and when working on your loads shoot from a rest so you can get the best groups these are just my opinons and how i do things and work up loads for what you going to use them for plinking or defence
