Hi folks....

I've just gotten started in reloading after putting it off for far too many years, and now I'm really having a great time!   Taking some advice from others -- I'm starting with a single stage Rockchucker Supreme and getting familiar with the process -- and so far, so good.

Appreciate the wealth of knowledge and help in the forums...the devil's in the details for sure.

Regards,
Rush

Welcome to the board, and the world of reloading. A good single stage press is a good way to start. Even if you add a progressive to your stable, a single stage will get plenty of use.
