Re: Info on reloading: cost, recommended tools, brands...
Visit a friend who reloads and see the process. Ask questions and become informed. Buy a reloading manual and read the sections on reloading.
Don't make the mistake almost everyone makes: buying too little of a reloading outfit. If you do you'll replace it later. I made the mistake thinking I'd only ever own one gun. I own probably 50 after 20 years, with about 20 different calibers from 25 ACP to 45-70.
After all these years and four different presses, the one that works the best, is the most reliable (the cheapies can be frustrating problems), and makes reloading fun is the Dillon Progressive RL550B. It is versatile enough to do it all, removes the drudgery as each cycle of the press produces one complete cartridge, and makes match level ammo if you try. If you enjoy the high of making things, reloading is very rewarding. I enjoy it almost as much as shooting the reloaded ammo.
I know, it is a big investment, but if you do it right the first time it is a life long investment as Dillon stands behind their equipment and will replace any broken part for free. Dillon has even replaced a press that was in a house fire! They have updated mine for free when they made improvements (Hornady refused to when their shotgun press was so bad they had to totally redesign it). It rarely breaks (unlike my Lee Progressive that broke every time I used it). And the RL550B is truly versatile (unlike the Dillon pistol only press). Progresive presses take the drudgery out of reloading reducing the time to make the ammo by a factor of at 1/3 or 1/4. They seem confusing at first but it all falls in to place after the first use.
I don't work for Dillon but am just a very satisfied customer. I have never met a dissatisfied one!
