    My pleasure, Reggie.

    Like I mentioned before... you have any troubles/questions with setting yours up, let me know, be glad to help out. Hopefully I'll see you 9/4 for Steel Challenge in Edgemoore.

    Okay, the rest of you reloaders... that's the SECOND guy I've had over this month! Bob (Hd_Renegage) was over 3 weeks ago for a visit with the 550.

    Are *you* trying to help out newbies enter the hobby? :supergrin:

    Gosh if I ever decide to get a Dillon you wanna come over? It might be a bit of a drive.

    I've introduced a few folks to reloading.... not recently, but I don't really hang out w/ that many shooters.

    I am going through the panhandle in a few weeks. Or do you live in the bad part of Idaho?

    Well, not to rain on the parade but Ron, you can count me in....

    I introduced two newbies to reloading within the last six weeks. Both times, I gave them an introductory lesson on reloading (including showing them where starting load data can be found) as well as a brief overview of how the process works on the 550b. I let them both reload their own ammo on my 550b, obviously under my watchful eye.

    Good stuff.
    I point newbies to this series of videos:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRZrbv_8kx4&feature=related
    While the title says "Dillon 550B", there's a LOT of good info to be had. He shows looking up data in one of the loading manuals, how to use a beam scale, etc. So even if the curious person was thinking of a Lee, Hornady, etc., some good info could be had.

    Reggie appears set on a 550B, but Bob is still in the investigation stage. We'll see where he ends up.

    I wouldn't call it the bad part of Idaho.........just a little more populated.
