I have been reading book after book about relaoding. Including the Nosler reloading manual #6, Lee reloading manuel and a couple others . But I have a few questions.
I bought a Lee reloading kit but haven't set it up yet but have been looking over the steps to reloading. Here are some questions.
1. The press shows a shell holder on the ram but doesn't show how it holds the shell holder on the ram. It has a small wire in a groove just under where the shell holder sits. How in the world does that hold the shell holder on the ram? It doesn't show anything in the directions or the manuals about it.
2. How long do you run your brass in a tumbler to get it clean the first time around before sizing?
3. Then do you guys run it through the tumbler a second time to polish the brass after sizing?
I've been on here just about everyday reading what everyone is posting and have learned a lot. But I don't have any buddies up here that reload so I don't have anyone I can watch or call and ask questions. I can't wait to get started but I want to have all my ducks in a row before I get started.
Thanks in advance for any and all help.
