    Lube them for what? I know I'm totally new to this, but my understanding is that as long as I am using Carbide Dies, there isn't any lubing to be done.

    Can anyone give me some insight on what kind of brass and bullets that would be good to start out with??

    Also, once I have some fired brass saved up, does it matter if there different brands? Once you get some fired brass saved up do you sort it? ... Or as long as you have the right caliber it doesn't matter.

    Would Remington brass and remington FMJ bullets be alright for me to start with?? I would be using CCI primers and unique powder.

    Good note, I mounted a light, power strip, shelf, bin organizer and paper towel holder today. All I need is everything to start loading!! LOL

    Remington is just fine for cases. You might find less pricey bullets than Rem FMJ, though- shop around. My moly-coated lead bullets cost about half of what the FMJs cost.

    Thanks!!

    When I go get all my loading stuff I'll pick up some Reminton Brass, I'm still slightly confused on what bullets to go with though. There's so many to choose from, and I'm not sure what would be cost efficient, safe, and good for me to learn on. I need some suggestions guys!!

    Well things changed slightly. My buddy just called and said Cabelas was having a sale on RCBS equipment and I happened to have a Cabelas $20 coupon that expired tonight ...

    Sooooo I just ordered
    RCBS Rock Chucker Supreme Master Reloading Kit
    RCBS Shell Holder
    RCBS Advanced Power Measure Stand
    RCBS Bullet Puller
    RCBS Powder Baffle
    RCBS Powder Trickler 2
    Cabelas XT1500 Electronic Scale
    Cabelas Stainless Steel Caliper

    Also have a $50 mail in rebate from RCBS ...

    I still need a case gauge and tumbler ... And I need recommendations for those please

    Take a look at the Cabela's Caliper for $49.95. It is better quality than the $22.00 model. 2 very good reloading manuals are Richard Lee's 1997 Edition and Lyman's 49th Edition. Carbide dies are always the best due to the lack of need for lubrication like the steel dies need. Franklin Arsenal makes a great tumbler and they sell a mixing barrel that is a GOD send for cleaning out all of the media after you have tumbled the brass. Also, You might want to look at FSreloading.com site for good instructional videos. One last thing that I found to be a great help was downloading Ballistics Data from one of the major manufacturer's sites for guidelines to reload to.

    Case gage - this is what you want: Max Cartridge Gage 9mm Luger

    For a tumbler, I have one of these: M-2 Case Tumbler 110 Volt

    Quiet, and works like a champ. And get one of these: Standard Media Separator

    It fits perfectly in the top of a "Roughneck" 15-quart pail. Just swish the cases around a bit, pick up a handful at a time and shake 'em, and bag 'em - done.
