    I shoot a fair bit with my girlfriends father, and he has recently expressed interest in reloading his own brass.

    I've found a few decent tutorials online, including this:
    http://www.geocities.com/gunversation/reloading101/reloading101.htm

    Which basically points at this as a good starter:

    Any thoughts/advice? This is going to be a christmas present, and we're trying to stay under 150 bucks if at all possible. He'll be reloading .38s and .45s.

    I'm about to start getting the equipment together. My future father-n-law reloads .38spl for cowboy action. He'll be helping with the technical stuff.

    I'll be loading .22-250, 308, and maybe 7mm STW. It might be the next barrel I get for the TC.

    I'm going to reload eventually, but to start I'll only be doing 7.5x55 and .223
