    Congratulations, it sure feels good doesnt it? Now, start buying brass, primers, bullets, and powder. Soon you will be reloading more than you shoot. I find myself staring at the loaded rounds as if hypnotized. I count them by how much they would have cost retail. Then I find myself shooting them, just so that I can reload them again.

    Congrats! I remember last year, my first reloads were some .380s using Titegroup powder. I was a bit nervous wondering if they were going to go off properly. It really felt good when all 50 went off with no problems :D

    If you had loads at the minimum level that did not feed, then you are doing things exactly correct. You simply work your way up the load scale until the feeding and accuracy reach excellent and stop there.

    Congrats!

    Now try some different weight bullets.
