Greasypaws what type of reloader do you use, powders, etc. I want to get into this for my 9mm primarily. But may want to add later as I do Trap Shoot also. Friggin clay pigeaons ain't bad with a nice Marsala wine sauce and some mushrooms. LOL

I got a catalog from Dillion that has all their presses, powders, dyes, brass, bullets etc... in it. I was considering the same thing. I'm sure you could call Dillion Precision and get a catalog sent to you.... and you would be supporting an AZ based company

reloading equipment

the biggest piece of advice i was given was,try to keep it simple till you get the hang of it.all that fancy electronic equipment is not any good if you make this too complicated.with the equipment i use i handle EACH case about 10-15 times per finished cartridge.i find alot of bad cases that if i used faster,one machine does it all equipment i might have missed.remember!cartridges are explosives that when improperly assembled and fired can seriously hurt or kill you!not trying to scare anyone but when i was taught,the old dude that taught me kept pounding me with how dangerous this can be.on average,with my basic equipment,i can load 70-80 rounds per hour!

reloading dies

when looking at used dies,look inside them for scratches and gouges,beat up threads on the outside of them and rust or corrosion of any sort.if you find any of these things put them back and look elsewhere.remember,new die sets are only 30 bucks anyway so keep that in mind
