Very cool. I'd like to know what type bullets you use for reloading 380. What manual do you go by. I currently reload 9mm, but 380 has gone crazy and I'd like to start reloading it too.

Yeah I'd like to more about it also now that I'm done buying more handguns. Got what I want, 9,45 &380 and expensive ammo when I can find it.

That doesn't sound too bad. Is it a good one or for a few dollars more get one better? A FEW DOLLARS! I suppose, like everything else, there are other accessories that would be wanted?

I broke mine twice, but I was cramming 06 cases up into different dies reforming them.

I really like a solid iron press, my Lee press flexed to much causing over all length differences. Especially on 45acp.

Check out you tube, there's tons of good stuff there.

I've been watching the video's Toney and will look at Hawk's. Not checked on investment but looks to be about the cost of a PM9 at least. STill checking and thanks for the leads. Karhhauler was selling one but way to early for me to consider. I will have to re-visit his thread.

That's a great video. When I started, I used a RCBS Rock Chucker like Hickok 45...which I still have and use. It's a single stage which is a great place to start as far as learning. I was lucky enough to be given that one. As I furthered along, I got the Hornady Lock n load AP press.

Now that I have all the handguns I want I'm thinking I may want to invest in a re-loader. I don't want to buy one though just to replace it later. From what I've seen it's a future investment. Still studying it.

Bob, if ya wanta buy the right press thats simple and self indexing and quality get a rl-550 dillon but its money. Close to 460$ TTD. My dillon 1050 was $1715.00 ttd. The loadmasters with magic mikes mods are about $400 set-up. Dillon 650, some love em, not me iam selling mine and going back to RL-550.

I started w/stuff in post one, just load one bullet one powder for a while. Not that hard. (wish l had known about RL-550 dillon when l started) You should buy a brass washer. Best a B model "thumblers tumbler" from midway. I'll be glad to help ya, call me or email me.

Hello Kahrhauler, I'll look up what you've suggested. Like I said I'm in not hurry as funds need to grow for a while and since you offered I'm sure I'll have some questions after getting familiar with hand loading. Thanks. Finally got a 380 I'm sure you noticed. It needs more breaking in as not good enough to depend on.
