So, it's inevitable that I'm going to start loading my own ammunition. I know some of you guys do it, and have probably been doing it for a long time. I know pretty much nothing about it, other than just the basics. Hopefully we can get a discussion started, and some of you who have been doing this for a while can help us newbies avoid some of the pitfalls you may have run into. So, here are some of my questions: - What all will I need to get started? I know I need a press, and to choose a method for cleaning brass (tumbler or ultrasonic, which is better?). I know I'll also need a good manual and an accurate scale. I already have a set of digital calipers. I know very little about different types of powder. - What is the best equipment, for the money? I typically don't cheap out when it comes to buying stuff that I'm going to keep and use forever, or, at least, for a long time. But, I also don't have to have the absolute top of the line. I figure that some of you may have bought certain equipment, only to learn later that there was something better out there, performance-wise, for the money. Hoping you'll be willing to share what you've learned here. Thanks in advance for the information!
