    A good place to start is to pop over to www.rcbs.com and check out the Reloading Guide and Reloading Questions sections. Lots of great info there.

    Suggest you pick up a copy of "the ABC's of Reloading". Another good manual with a lot of get started information is Lyman's 47th Edition Reloading Manual.
    Take Care

    I second the Lyman's, a very good book. Also check out Metallic Cartridge Reloading, 3rd Edition. They both cover the subject pretty well.

    Get several reloading manuals. Sometimes their numbers disagree and having three choices to average is better than two.

    Beginner, I envy you!

    You are starting on a lifelong adventure.

    I second all of the above as to "get books and read them" and the choices are IMHO good. You will never be all-knowing in this pursuit, but it sure is a fascinating study.

    WARNING: If you cannot/will not follow directions; if you always must be pusing the envelope; if you ever think you know it all; if you like going where angels fear to tread, and sneering at those who don't; if you cannot act like a reasonable and prudent adult, DO NOT GET INTO RELOADING!!! You might get lucky a few times, but that will just increase the chance that your final accident will be a real doozy.

    That said, and assuming you aren't one to jump into the stall with the bull and kick him, welcome to the club! For most of us, the most dangerous part of reloading is driving the car to the range.

    Don't plan on saving any money reloading. You'll just reload more ammo, and shoot more. :D
