For someone just starting our reloading - any advise on a first book to read or best way to learn the ins and outs of reloading? I inherited a Dillon 550 and a bunch of parts and accessories.

Thanks

I'm partial to the Speer reloading manual #13.

Dillon will furnish you an instruction book for free and sell you a video cheap on the operation of their press. Their web site is at

but best to call them on the phone and describe your situation.

In addition, you need a general reloading manual to fully describe the individual steps and to furnish actual load data for your calibres. Dillon has those, too. The Lyman Handbook, 48th edition, is good.

ABCs of reloading.
I have the 6th edition with Dean Grinnell.
I believe it's out of print now, but it's written so well you can't put it down.

Lyman manuals are always a good idea too.

Dillon also has the manuals for their presses online in pdf format.

Hornady does too.
