    Merry Christmas To Me!

    My family pitched in and gave me a Dillon XL 650 for Christmas!

    Just the first (but primary) componet of what I hope will be a good hobby and way to support my shooting addiction.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    What Tubby said - plus maybe too Richard Lee's 2nd Edition Reloading Manual, then too grab all the PDF's off the web for load data and maybe find Lyman and Speer books.

    Read all you can - awesome Christmas present you have - start slow and build up your knowledge and confidence.

    Sure! Do I have to send it back?

    Thanks for the suggested reading. I allready figured on a lot of reading ahead of me.
