I have a Lee reloader coming in the mail. Never reloaded before so I may need some advice. My 500sw is so expensive to shoot but I love it so thought I'd try reloading. However I have not seen bullets anywhere for 500SW. Also which primers do I get?

Looks like I'm a little late here, but I'm also a reloader and live in Pomona. Not exactly considered the IE, but very close.

Been reloading for about 38 years now and currently reloading 9mm, 45ACP, 38spl, 357 Mag, 44 Mag, .223, 30-30, and 308 Win.

I'm new here and Im thinking about starting to reload my own ammo. So much info on the web is overwhelming. Any experienced reloaders interested in showing a noob, maybe even gauge interest and set up a reloading clinic..?

If you have enough powder/bullets/primers to spare I'll pay you to reload these and teach me.
Do you have the 9mm dies? If you do I can help you with that.

I am stationed on the 29 Palms MCB. If there is anyone around me I would be willing to help someone learn to reload.

I'm in Hesperia, just got my xl650 bolted to the bench today. Picking up some powder and primers tomorrow hopefully and if I can score some .40 bullets online I may actually be able to set it up and run a batch.

Congrats on becoming a reloader!

I learned to load over 20 years ago from my Dad and still using his old Dillon RL550. There are plenty of references, book or video or in person. and once you pick up the basics, you are then GTG.
Loading can definitely become an art form. Depends on your point of view. I see it as a necessity because i'm a Shooter and I won't spend hours just trying to develop loads.

Pistol shooter, it's cake, follow established guidelines and buy a chronograph (this is key) Other shooter's have offered "recipes", take them as guidelines, you, the reloader will load to your own spec because of different equipment.

USPSA? you will load to Power Factor and accuracy.
Rifle shooter? Ok, load development is necessary here due to various factors.

It's not complicated, just pay attention to your tasks and you will have match grade ammunition.

Enjoy!

I'm on the same boat here, I want to learn but not from youtube video. Almost bought a press at the gun show today but spending $500 for something I didn't know how to use stopped me.

Seems the thread kinda went quiet last few weeks, so
wanted to let you know I am another "new to reloading"
in I.E.
Already took one of you up on offer to help learn, with
great results. In person is much much better than videos.
Still waiting for some Lee equipment to arrive, in the mean
time gathering a little supply of components to start.
Powder ..... like mining for gold

Default Pistol Primer question

Now that we have reloaders here in IE, want to ask about use of
primers. I just bought a few small pistol CCI 550 and reading that these magnums could be used in 38 special by lowering the load a little.
I will be by the book and now concerned if that is a good approach, given I'm just starting.
Any comments ?

I've been reloading since 1987...maybe 1986...I don't rightly remember.

Mostly back then it was .38/.357 and 9mm. Bought a .30-30 and reloaded for that. Shot 1 year in silhouette and found a great load for my .357 that worked.

Recently I bought a .45 acp and an AR. Just finished loaded 2500 rounds of .233.

Single stage Lyman press is all I ever used...all I will ever need.

Since I no longer shoot competition all my loads are at the mid range for powder. Meaning if the manual says 23gr to 27 gr I load up 25 gr. I've always had great luck doing that...besides it's the shooter not the bullet.

Hornady, Lyman, Speer, Lee just to name a few. There are also some good videos on youtube from experienced reloaders willing to share their knowledge.
Reloading can be addictive and the more you put into it the more you realize how much you dont know. I load 9mm, 38/357, 40, 45, 223, 308 and 30-06. So I end up doing bulk and precision rounds but the more I read from very experienced reloaders the more I feel like a beginner.

Default Reloading in Rancho Cucamonga

Just wanted to say hello, just joined. I reload in Rancho Cucamonga.
I currently reload 45ACP, 38 Special and 357. As soon as I find the dies, I plan to reload 45 colt and 40 S&W.
Reloading has been easy, finding powder, primers and bullets has been the challenge.

Thanks

Powder is spotty, depends on the day, you'd have to call him. He hasnt had much rifle/pistol since the craze has happened, i was lucky and scored 2000 209 12ga primers for $50
