For some reason I seem to gravitate towards non standard cartridges. The cost of factory ammo keeps me from shooting as much as I would like. Now I am starting an AR project (technically 2) both of which are going to be odd cals. So reloading seems like the best answer. I have not read up on it much yet but plan too. I just want to know how most people learn? Did you solicit help, or have someone that showed you? I am a tool/gear/gadget guy to some extent and I hate spending money on crummy stuff. I think that has stopped my from picking this up in the past. I hear so much about the different products and I question what what dies, presses, what dies work w/ what presses etc that I get frustrated and don't mess w/ it. I know that they have the rockchucker kits and others but in all of the things I have done from a kit I have never felt like I couldn't have done better for less if I just bought the best individual componenets the first time around. I will certainly stop reloading if it turns out to be plagued with equipment hassels. I would like to be able to crank out 500, .223 rounds then bang out a box or 2 of 325 and 270 wsm.
Does anyone give lessons or is there a class somwhere?
Too bad it wasn't an elective in school, it could be added into the Gov't class as a practical application chapter on the 2nd ammendment.
