Re: 1st timer
Welcome to the forum, Woodrow, from across the pond. You've stumbled on a great forum. The people here are friendly and knowledgable and free with their counsel. You'll find lots of friendship, help and good humor here. Don't be afraid to ask questions. The only dumb question here is the unasked one. We all started out from knowing nothing and learned by doing just what you are doing--reading and asking questions.
I have a progressive press which I use for .223 and .357. I use it as a single stage press for the .223's and as a progressive press for the .357's. You'll find discussions of presses across this part of the forum. There is a sticky at the top of this section in which Jack404 has uploaded an entire library of reloading information. As you get closer to actually reloading ask all you want.
And...welcome again to the forum
