Okay, so as I have said before, I am going to take the plunge and start reloading. I picked up a copy of the ABC's of Reloading and have been reading through it, and I know I need to read the entire thing and I will do that. I have been saving brass I plan on reloading for, and I even bought a kinetic bullet puller. That was for an experiment making my own dummy rounds that didn't work out to well. It has also come in handy though for safely dis-assembling live rounds I find mixed in with the brass I have been picking up at the range. I found a tumbler at Wally World for around $70. I was wondering if it would make sense for me to buy that now and clean brass as I find it? My thinking is that I will have plenty of cases ready to go by the time I buy my press and everything else I will need. I won't have to spend time cleaning and can just start loading. Another thought I had is that if I buy a piece of equipment here and there like that, then I can accumulate stuff as I am able to. For a press, I am going to go with what Colorado4Wheel said about the LCT kit or w/e it was from Kemph's. How about what type of media? I have one guy at the range tell me uncooked dry rice from any grocery store is what he uses. I have heard other talk about walnut? I realize it probably does not make a lot of sense to buy the specific "tumbling media." I am sorry if any of this sounds dumb to you more experienced guys. I am always learning and will keep asking questions when I think of them. I also plan on ordering the press and everything next month. Any input would be most appreciated. Wanna kill these ads?
