There is some pretty valuable information for beginners here.

Also, as the article states, this is for people interested in getting started with reloading, so Lee haters don't bother.

I use Lee and like it.  I'm new to reloading and find the Lee products easy to use.  The ammo shoots and doesn't blow up my gun, so I figure that I'm doing something right.  The equipment is reasonablely priced too.  For the price of a Dillon press I can get a Lee progressive, all the dies and accessories, and have money left over for components.  If I outgrow the Lee stuff, I can trade in (sell it to another starter) for something else.

I have a Dillon 550 and would recommend to anyone. Two things you need to know about progressives, first they spit out ammo fast (only if you are loading strait taper cartridges and are using carbide dies, running lubed bottle neck cases through a progressive press can be messy) second it cost more. I use a redding single stage for sizing bottle necks cases and swageing.  If you want to get started in reloading I think a great Idea would be a turret press. They save all kinds of set up time, don't cost too much, and would be easy to master. P.S. you should get load books, because if the power goes out how would you down load the data.  ^_^

These days, anyplace you can actually find supplies seems to be a small miracle.  I hit the nearby Scheels yesterday and simply got lucky.  Found 9mm bullets that my dad and brother haven't been able to find anywhere.  I loaded up and the checkout guy smirked at me.  "Those just arrived today!"

Still no Small Pistol primers though.  I have a small army of friends and family all searching.

Midway USA is a great site.  You can set up automatic email notification for items you want.  Oh, sorry, the term 'automatic' might offend those gubmint types snooping around here...

A friend of mine was in a feed store and happened to mention that she couldn't find 22 ammo anywhere.

The clerk says: "well I have a whole case under ther counter been here a long time."

Friend: " how many in the case?"

Clerk: "3000"

Friend: " how much?"

Clerk: "$300.00"

Friend: " I'll take them"
