Never reloaded before with a few questions

Well after much thought and research on the forums I belong to, I decided to purchase my first setup to initially reload 10mm fmj. If I catch the reloading bug, I will expand calibers and upgrade equipment in the future.

I bought the following items from various sources including, Midway USA, Ebay and Amazon:

Lyman 49th Edition Reloading Handbook
Lee Modern Reloading 2nd Edition Book
Lee 50th Anniversary kit 90050
Lee perfect powder measure (dippers)
4 xtra Lee quicklock bushings
Lee deluxe 4 die carbide set for .40 s&w and 10mm
Frankford Arsenal puller
Frankford Arsenal perfect fit reloading trays
Frankford Arsenal Digital SS 6" Caliper
rcbs 60.5 grain scale check weights
Hong Kong Pocket Digital Scale with 5 units of measure (includes grains)

I know I have quite a bit of equipment yet to buy including a tumbler, hand primer setup, dillion case gage, ammo boxes, labels, powder, primers, projectiles but have a few questions.

I don't even plan on unpacking everything until I read both books completely.

Here are my questions:

1. Any other suggested books or other media sources?
2. Is there a local Reloading supplier in the general area of Philadelphia for powder and primers?
3. Anyone know of any classes for the novice reloader?

When you say "micrometer", I think you mean "caliper". A caliper is a critical piece of kit. Micrometer -- not so much.

got my reloading setup for 44 mag. can do 10mm now. i did a lot of reading online and read through my hornady manual. also took a good look at all the hardware and exactly what it all did before i started. really easy, just be very anal about details and you should be good.

I approve of the fact that you listed the loading manuals first on your list of equipment. Smart. You are off to a good start already.
