Greetings from Cape Cod, MA

Post by jpdeal on Mon Mar 12, 2012 12:44 pm

Newb to relaoding. In fact, I'm waiting for FEDEX to deliver all the equipment ordered last week! Already aprehensive about letting the hammer fall on my first cartridge....YIKES!

From the couple of days I've been trolling the forums on ATG it is clear that this will be a great resource as I navigate the learning curve. So, thanks in advance!!

Planning on loading 9mm, .223/5.56 and 30-06. I'm also interested in doing 7.62x54r and possibly casting for same. But, I'm getting ahead of myself with that.

Looking forward to contributing when I'm able!!

Welcome. Just take a friend shooting and let them go first. That way if something goes wrong, you will have all your fingers to try again...

J/K, you won't lose any fingers if you follow the load data.
