Thank you to everyone
Thanks to everyone who answered what are probably considered dumb questions. But I've always been told that the only dumb question is the question that is not asked.
I now have a starting point. Will head out tomorrow to see what powders are available at Gander Mountain. Hopefully they will have Power Pistol and I can load a few low end 9mm to start with.
After I am more confident and knowledgable I intend to start reloading .40SW too.
I just got done ordering the Hornady 8th Edition from Amazon. I'm sure that it will help me greatly.
I really appreciate all the help.
