Introduction to reloading

AK-47 AR-15 Survival RiflesLets talk about reloading. My first press was a Lyman 4 stage turret press I bought used. I don’t think lyman even makes them anymore. I bought that press sometime around 1988 or 1989, along with some other stuff from a guy I used to work with. Fast forward from 1998 to 2003, I found out the guy I bought the press from died, so I gave the press to his best friend. The last time I saw that old press, it was sitting on a file cabinet in the friends office. I can not even start to count how many thousands of rounds I ran through that turret press.

My next press was an RCBS rockchucker, and finally a piggyback. The RCBS is a solid press that is good for reloading just about anything from 9mm, all the way to 300 winchester magnum and above.

If you want to get into reloading, I highly suggest buying a starter kit. Just about all reloading companies sell some kind of starter kit that includes just about everything you need to get started reloading:
