    I just got my G23 two days ago and I must say I am very excited and impressed! I know that I am going to start shooting a lot more and would like to start loading my own rounds... does anybody have any suggestions for a nice, but affordable reloading kit?

    You should probably start another thread in the Reloading section of this forum. You will get plenty of opinions and responces there.

    I started with the Lee anniversary kit. Its a decent set-up at a good price. Its got almost everything you need to start. I reccomend buying something like this first and upgrading a little at a time.
    If you decide reloading isnt for you at least you wont have much invested.
    Hope this helps. :wavey:

    I wasn't sure if reloading was for me either, so I picked up a Lee Hand Press kit for ~$40. Turns out it's a very addicting hobby, and I've put about 3000 rounds through it since last summer. Amazing the thing is still useable!

    All told my setup runs about $120 including the Lyman manual. Some of my stuff is used, some off ebay.

    Lee Anniversary Kit is my set up. I have loaded many rounds thru it and many 40 S&W.
    For a good powder for mid to warm loads may I suggest Hodgdon's Longshot.
