a good place to start?

Postby quack_attack83 » Wed Jan 03, 2007 8:27 pm

I just purchased a MEC jr. reloading press and am having one hell of a time finding a book on the basics of shotshell reloading. I have reloaded rifle and pistol all my life but the little bit of info i have been finding for shot shells is so vague, one would need to know all about it already. Are there any good litriture anyone can recomend.

I want to reload steel, so that is what i am most interesed in if that makes a difference.

Go back through the posts in this area. There are a lot of them about reloading and getting started. Here is one.

More ammo! I need to shoot something!

Lyman's shotshell reloading manual is THE place to start.

Good steel receipes can be found in Precision Reloadings "Steel Shot Reloading Manual", and Ballistic Products "The Status of Steel Reloading Steel Shotshells".
