I'm waiting now for my RCBS Charemaster 1500 to get here! I bought the ROCKCHUCKER SUPREME MASTER RELOADING KIT last year but didn't start rolling them out yet because I wanted to set up a good reloading room. The room is done now and I plan on loading real soon! I think I've got everything I need to get started except the scale. I'm sure once I get into it I'll find things I defiantly need and things I can do with out. I've got dies for my Rem280, 454 Casull and my 30-30. I'd like to try to reload my 22 Hornet but heard they are tough because the thin casings.
I'm glad to see someone on here we can go to and get tips and information on reloading! I hope you don't mind me asking a thousand and one questions?

Used to reload everything from pistol to rifle and shotgun. Now just shotgun. I have 4 Mec 9000g progressive reloaders, 1 fore each ga. I dont shoot enough rifle or pistol any more to justify the time.
I just went to the store and picked up 2 boxes of remington 40 grain poly-tipped boat tailed ammo for the .204. I spent like 16 bucks per box. I have been thinking of getting some bulk ammo from cabelas to save money. I can get 32 39 or 40 grainers but I don't really know who makes the ammo they offer. Does anyone know about their ammo? is it worth buying to save a couple of bucks?? No I don't reload and do not have the space for a setup. cabelas options are 40 grain V-max -- berger hpbt -- or accutips they also have 32 and 39 grain blitzkings.. any thought???
I got into it a couple of years ago. I load for my .30/06 (Ruger 77 Mark II), .22 Hornet (Win. 43 - a classic I bought used when I was 16, which makes it an antique ;D), and my Baikal 12 ga. o/u for skeet. (I call her "Natasha" - she's a Russian peasant. Not the prettiest girl at the dance, but she puts out).
Got nearly all my stuff on eBay - mostly RCBS for the rifles, and a MEC Jr. for Natasha. Got some really good deals, which put me in the hobby for about half-price.
I use IMR 4064 and 4350 for the '06 and 4227 for the Hornet. Pretty happy with good old Red Dot for skeet, too.
