Howdy from the Fox Valley!
Luck82, well you are starting with an Awesome press. The Redding T7 Turret press is one of the best turret presses on the market! You can load "Precision Ammo" on it, Redding dies are some of the best dies around for loading precision ammo. Add a Redding Instant Indicator/Comparator with the dial and a set of Competition shell holders along with a set of Redding dies and your off and running! Plus your pending Dillon 550c your set for reloading!! Check out some of Highboy's videos on the Redding T7 Turret press to learn more about the press. Once again welcome to Highboy Nation!Glad to be here! I'm fairly new to hand loading. I've only been at it for about a year so. I'm still learning a lot (that never stops) including vocabulary. A buddy gave me a steal on his old Lee turret press and so for I've only been loading 6.5CM and 9mm on that. I got sort of fed up with the Lee though and have recently gotten into a T7 to start working up more consistent precision loads. I probably won't do much 9mm on that so though and plan on a 550c some time this year for primarily 9mm and 223. A few other calibers I'll be adding to the mix in the short term are 357, 38sp, 22-250, 30-06 and I'm sure the list will go on and on as I drive deeper down the rabbit hole. Again, thanks for having me and the warm welcome. I'm sure I'll have tons of questions. As I peruse the forum and the channel, a lot of them are being answered before I even know what to ask lol
Thanks for the warm welcome! I have a fair amount of experience with gun but I am new to reloading. I've only been at it for about a year, so my round count is low. I'm still learning a lot and like to really study things I'm interested in so handloading is the perfect rabbit hole for me to go down lol. Honestly, I'm finding myself enjoying the reloading process almost as much as the "unloading" process.We welcome you to the forum. Thanks for joining us!
Glad to have you here.
Tell us your about your reloading journey.
And if your new to guns or reloading or experienced feel free to ask questions or help others.
Saving money has never been a reason for me. I joined a private outdoor range (Aurora Sportsmans Club) a few years ago and it really opened up a lot more shooting activities for me. I'm really involved in our Action Shooting Sports community so I really need to keep stay on top of my 9mm and 223 supply. I haven't started loading 223 yet though. I'm sorta waiting to get a Dillon for those. But we also have ranges out to 600 so I'm getting more and more into the idea of Practical Precision Rifle matches, which was the main cause for my interest in reloading.Welcome! Reloading is certainly a rabbit hole. You might not save money but you will have better ammo if you do it right and might even get to shoot more.
