I would buy a reloading manual and read it until you understand it. There under 30 bucks.
Absolutely start there. Each bullet manufacturer makes their own manuals. I would maybe suggest a Hornady manual. I like their bullets. After you read the instructions, you will have an understanding about it. Then ask questions about what you read.

Pages from a reloading manual stuck together? Must have had some good pictures lol!
Lots of powder porn and fresh, tight, firm looking bullet molds. I have also head that in the shotgun section they teach you how to properly shoot your wad(s). :signs653wf::roflmao3[1]:

Redding also has a Basic Handloading Guide in a .pdf file you can download for free that they put together with Riflemagazine.com. Here's the link. http://www.redding-reloading.com/handloading-linksI love Redding stuff. I have several of their competition seating dies and they're terrific. The other day, I decided to take a chance on an RCBS competition seating die (got it cheap) despite the reviewers on MidwayUSA who complain of higher bullet run-out (i.e., lack of concentricity) from the RCBS dies versus the Redding and Forster dies. But I figured I'm just going to be using it to load hunting ammo for my .270 Win and hopefully it won't be too bad.

DF, you have no idea!!! I didn't even mention how melting lead makes me hot, or how important a good (bullet) lube is. And don't even get me started on the repeated press strokes......It's the voices, I swear.
