I'm considering doing some reloading. More so for my rifles, but I was wondering if someone could offer some tips on basic equipment (kits), etc...things to watch out for...I don't want to get too fancy...very basic..something to go to every once in a while for an hour or two...Thanks in advance...

Wish I had the spare place to set up a reload bench. I feel like I'm throwing money away when I drop my brass in the bucket at the range. One day!

I felt that for sure when I shot my .357sig , but it still paid off putting the lead down range , Always helps with the stress in life !

I don't have a lot of room to set up a big operation...looking for something simple...Like you guys, looking at the brass on the ground makes me want to do something different...As to the .357 Sig reloads...I don't shoot reloads in my Glocks...

Not to mention when it's illegal to buy ammo. You will at least have the skill set.

I'll do it eventually...need to reuse that brass...Last time I was shooting long distance, this guy was hanging out "lurking" to pick up brass between volleys...I kept the .308, but let him have the .223...

I wish that I had the space and the time to do the reloading gig. I think that it would be a blast. Hopefully soon i will convince the wife to buy a new house or add on to our house to accommodate my reloading needs.

Just don't tell her you want to make your own gun powder out of charcoal, sulfur and urine :)

That is actually something I should tell her. Then maybe she will let me add a power room.
