I did buy the large quanity items so they would last for a while. I bought all the quick locking system for my Lee press. Makes it easy to change the dies.
I bought RedDot powder. Tomorrow I will start loading. I bought the Lyman reloading manuel. I bought the pre-lube 200gr long colts and the 230 gr 45acp. Do you guys agree that 6.0 gr for long colts and 4.0 for 45acp is a good charge?
You start at the light end of the load and work your way up from there.You need to look at your powder chart and see what the starting load should be.I use tight group powder and I started at 4.3grains with a 230gr fmj bullet.Ill go look at my chart ill be back in a sec
