Why is that? is it because its the same dies as 10mm??Step one is a solid reloading manual, the Lyman 49th would be my suggestion. Read it and then research equipment, I dont recommend .40 as a first cartrige, not impossible per se, just requires a tad more attention.
A semi-auto cartridge is a bit more involved than a revolver cartridge for reloading. Feeding and chambering must be considered and proper bullet sizing, finished case dimensions, over all cartridge length must all be within tolerances to function in a semi-auto. For a revolver, if the cartridge fits in the chamber/cylinder, it's usually good to go.Why is that? is it because its the same dies as 10mm??
its all here on this site (best reloading forum on the web), look at the stickys and use the search, then ask questions... there are many reloading experts on here and if you have put in the effort but cant find your answer you will have many folks on here more than willing to help you out, but they wont spoon feed you...thanks, why .40s&w ? because that's the gun I bought! will definitely be reading all I can get. I will need the whole set up but will have to do it a step at a time
Your initial cost of starting up is going to be a little high. You can find places that sell kits that will give you a good start on the stuff you will need to start up. Here is a good starting point: http://www.midwayusa.com/product/82...-anniversary-kit-with-modern-reloading-manual A lot of people will bash Lee stuff because they are inexpensive but I am still using the same press (just about like the one shown) since I started loading about 35+ years ago.any guesses on total cost? will buy used equipment is that would be reliable.
