Did you have a mentor, Dad, Granddad, friend, neighbor? Or did you just read a manual and go from there? Or if you started reloading in the last 15 years, maybe it was Internet forums? My shotgun reloading started in the 70s and although my Dad was an old paper hull reloader from his trap/skeet days, he may have answered a few questions, he never sat down and showed me anything. It was just me and an old Lyman manual. Rifle in the 80s was because a couple of friends convinced me that was the way to milk the most accuracy out of my rifles. And I was impressed with both of their shooting skills. Each of them ran a few bullets off of their respective setups for me, but my actual reloading was just me, a RCBS Rockchucker and an old P O Ackley manual. Pistol, just started in 2020 although I started buying dies and components every since the Clinton shortages, just in case. This time it was a combination of internet input, articles, searches,(many of which came back to THR) and a couple of manuals. Interested to hear other’s stories, especially ones where a parent or grandparent got ya started.
