Default Just starting up.

Hey fellas, new to the forum and seeking advice. I have had a starter reloading kit for several years that is still in the box. I have finally made room to set it up and thought maybe this would be a good place to start looking for load data to use as a starting point. I have a speer reloading manual but thought maybe someone would have some tips that would save time and money for a beginner. Some of the cartridges I will be reloading in the near future are 300WSM, 300 WBY mag, .243 win, and 7mm-08. Anybody got any words of wisdom?

This probably isn't the best place to ask reloading questions...

I have reloaded shotgun and pistol many years ago.I just received my new Lee Loadmaster in .270 and I also was hoping to get some good advice from here also.I am confident that someone will step up and give us some advice.

I started loading for .243, 303 british and 7.62x54R back in August. Just go slow and watch what you are doing. Once you get the hang of reloading its a pretty fun hobby.

Is this the press you have? Looks like it has some pretty poor reviews.... Lee Load-Master Progressive Press Kit 270 Winchester - MidwayUSA

Yes,that is the press I have.I am not to concerned with the reviews.I have used Lee in the past with very good results.If it gives me trouble,I will return it if needed.I am at first not going to trust the automatic powder drop until I trust it.I think it will be fun to reload rifle.It not a Dillion or a RCBS but I hope as a starter,it will work.

I don't know...every single one of those loadmaster press's has 1-2 stars.

This looks like a real good set for the money, especially for starting out.

I read the reviews,but the reviews don't mean that much to me.I have read lots of reviews on most of the things I purchase.If you do that,just about everything you want to buy,someone has a problem with it.
