oh oh...time to start reloading, pull that handle,!!!!!!!!!
I usually can knock out 100 rounds rifle ammo in a hour and a half

when you get ready to start reloding, be on the look out for an old treadmill
to canablise the parts for a wet tumbler
I made mine for around 40 bucks. store bought will run you 3oo and up
with half the capacity

Purchase the Lyman reloading manual and read it cover to cover 2 - 3 times . If you do not plan to load shot shells , you can skip that section .

Buy a Lyman loading manual first & read it 2 - 3 times . Before you buy any thing else .

With rifles you can often produce more accurate ammo than what you have been buying .

I am cheap , also . Almost all the stuff I have bought new is Lee brand . Used stuff , several brands .

You will need space to set stuff up .

Have you been saving empty brass ?
