    I decided to join up, knowing that I am going to need to ask some questions and hopefully learn a thing or two about handloading. I have been reading posts and learning alot over the past few months. Thanks! I have moved closer to my parents and out of the PHX Valley and have at my use my dad's Dillon 550 x2 one small primer one large with a bunch of dies and reloading stuff. So far I've loaded a few hundred rds of the classic 44mag, 45colt, 10mm since the early 90's (favorite) 9mm (only recently I like) 38s. I just loaded 223 today ... And 357 is next on my list.
    GREAT SITE
    thanks,
    Pistoltwo

    Welcome aboard. I started reloading when I lived in Sierra Vista Arizona as we were going out shooting in the desert more and more. Had to keep ammo levels up to support those weekend trips so I started reloading.

    Several good places in Tucson to get reloading gear if you venture up that way. There’s a hidden gem on Speedway that goes by the name Thunderstick I believe. They have a great selection on bullets and powder. Brass as well from time to time.
