    Honestly mate if you are new to reloading purchase Nick Harvey's Practical Reloading Manual.

    All the good intentions from fellow forum uses are probably not going to do you any good until you understand what you are doing. It will be all be over your head. Loads for one rifle are not necessarily any use in your rifle.

    Get the book and read it.

    I agree stick with the ADI powders they are made in Aussie and generally available. Get 100 cases all one brand. And make a start.

    Have fun
    Jeremy

    Was considering buying the lee book actually! btw if anyone wants these .270, .357 magnum dyes or winchester shotgun primers I'd be more than happy sell or trade them for any gear that I may need!

    You could use primers for 270 in a 308 both would take large rifle primers

    Shahin The Practical Guide to Reloading
    Have a look at this book and site a very good read!
    Also if your stuck for space you can mount your press on a peace of 6"x2"x600mm and G clamp it to a bench/table. Then you can remove this when not in use might want to give those dyes a good spray with CRC to kill off that rust
    Have fun ah

    Hi , If you dont get someone to get you well started then also buy a stuck case remover for as sure a god made little apples you will forget to lube a case and they really are stuck ... Happens to the smart guys too... Rob

    @lefty1

    Very true.

    I had an occasion to use my one a couple of weeks ago loading 223 cases.

    Seems no matter how careful I am I get to use this bit of kit once or twice a year for either myself or others.

    Cheers
    Pete

    Hi, I`m a Jaffa to out west, loading .308, 3030, and 45-70 guv, so if you need a hand into reloading and a look at what gear you don`t need I can give you a heads up on it. You will definitely need a good reloading manual and a good powder scale. Take care, but have fun.

    If you are going to be on eTGTs 45grain behind a HBC might not register at 1000yds, 45.5gr should every time, again depending on the gun, case.

    Perhaps I am on something also, but WTF does "eTGTs behind a HBC" mean in English, can someone translate this code for me please.
