I recently learned how to reload shotgun shells with my grandfather's old press. I've been wanting to reload pistol and rifle cartridges for awhile now, but couldn't justify the price tag to reload just some 9mm and .223. Then I picked up a few more guns and my brother went and bought a 500 S&W. At $1-2/cartridge for factory loads, we decided it was time to get started. I picked up a Hornady Lock and Load Classic kit, dies and shell holder for 9mm, and we're going to build up a reloading bench this week. I've been reading through the Hornady reloading manual all evening, and I've got the general idea of what needs to happen. Any advice before we start messing around with stuff that goes bang?
