Looks like i'm going to get into reloading...just for my 9mm at this time but i'll start doing it for the .45 later. i have about 1500 9mm and 600 .45 once shot brass I have kept.
Been reloading 20 and 12ga for years, but this is all new to me. Going to look for a good book on pistol reloading and checking out presses.
Would like to hear some advice.

Read C4W's sticky... he did a pretty thorough job of breaking quite a few things down in that post, any questions after that, post em.. :)

I'm new to this, and currently I am reading ABC's of Reloading, and Lee Modern Reloading 2nd Edition. Along with any information gather online.

I will be ordering the Lee Classic Turret Kit from Kempf Gun Shop (https://kempfgunshop.com//index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=630&category_id=190&manufacturer_id=0&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=41)

Like you, I will only be doing 9mm for now.

Good choice.

For me it turned out to be the Lee Anniversary Kit. I only do 40 S&W now and it allows me to inspect each step which I think is important for the 40 caliber.
It has become a enjoyable hobby in and of itself and allows me to make good ammo for my firearms and to save money (sort of). I actually spend a little more money but shoot a whole lot more.

It always comes down to time vs money. Most reloaders buy more press than they need. At 200rds a week, a ss press works fine. Upto 400rds a week, the LCT works fine. More than that, you probably need a progressive, unless you have a lot of time on your hands. A ss press is the most versatile, auto indexing progressive the highest volumn. Faster/higher volumn, higher the cost.:dunno:
