Finally Setup and Reloading

The wifey got me the Lee Anniversary Kit for Xmas, and I've finished getting everything else needed to start reloading. Got everything setup today and loaded my first 20 rounds of 6.8mm SPC.

It's not much of a setup, but you use what you've got, and I'll improve my setup as time goes on.

case prep


press and powder


My first 20 rounds...unfortunately I forgot to get a bullet puller. Something I seriously need as my first few rounds were loaded too deep.

looks like a good setup!

looks like you're using the right case lube, and you've got what you need!

only thing I can suggest is to reinforce that table! I broke some 3/4" chip board when I started reloading.

Welcome to the hobby. Develop good habits and you will find it to be safe and rewarding. If I also could offer a bit of advice: When you're not using your scales, take the beam off and set it aside. The beam balances on very sharp knife edges and it saves wear on them if you remove it from the scales body when not being used. Enjoy.

i was seeing that table and thinking the same thing.

but a good solid start, im still working on getting there, but since i mostly shoot 12gauge, 556/223, it doesnt make as much sense for me to reload, besides sadly i dont shoot enough, maybe this year i can fix all that.

but good job man, bavo good sir...

Your in trouble now. Before you know it you'll be wanting to load for everything you have. Welcome to the reloading world.
