1 You get a lub pad put a small amount of lub on it and roll your empty rifle case over the pad (dont lub the kneck)
2 Then you place you case in a sizing press lower the lever and resize your case back to its factory size while doing this there is a pin built in the size die that removes the old primer.
3 You then need to put a new primer in the resized case its just a mater of placing the case in the primer press and lowering the handle. ( dont touch primers with your hands moisture makes them inactive there is a tray to use look at green tray next to press)
4 Then its get the scales out a nice cheap set of balance scales will do but there are loads of differnt ones but remeber they must measure in grans.
5 then put the measured powder in the primed case use a funnel.
6 Place the primed case with powder in it into the bullet seater put the bullet in the top hole and lower the handle .
7 you should now have a nice home made round to fire .before anyone jumps down my throat and starts all the what about how much powder all the differnt bullets etc this is the basic and from here there is no limmit to what you can load and the variations are vast. the facts are loading is alot cheaper and if you ahave a small amount of time they are more acurate than factory about 50% ps hope this works lol

I like to use a "progressive" loading machine it has 5 stations and performs all the steps each time you pull the handle. Its not quite as acuarate as a single stage press, but its good enough for most shooting.
And don't forgt its nice to clean your brass before you start reloading, i like to tumble it with crushed walnut shells and polishing compound. A good machine costs about $ 50 US.
Reloading is a nice hobby and it saves a lot of money.

I have been an avid hunter/shooter and reloader for over 27 years. Hunting has been slow this year but I have been target shooting alot. Still waiting for the Snow to push the Elk down so I can fill the freezer. Season ends Dec 31 so I still have time.
Anyway, just wondering if you mind if I stop by now and then for a chat.

I went out today looking to see if the snow has pushed any elk down out of the mountains and into the unit I have a tag for. No dice.
This is not like Idaho for there to be so little snow in Dec. The old 300 Weatherby went unfired yet another hunt. Maybe next weekend. I'll post a photo if I bag one.
