Jon, You have a lot of reading to do ...LOL
Do you have a handloading book yet?

The ABC's of hand loading is a good one.

But also, now a days, there is so much on line to help out also.

Thanks, Rockydog!! This is exactly what I must read. Generally, I research the hell out of stuff before plunging in. It took me a long time to hook up my gernerac 10 kW natural gas powered standby generator, but it's in now an working. I expect to take the same approach to reloading. After I read these manuals, I'll know better what questions I should be asking.:shootfoot:
