Default Want to start reloading

So as the thread says I want to start reloading. Can someone give me a run down of the equipment I will need (not commercial just for myself and family) and also and recommended books on the subject?

Some more information would be nice. Eg Calibers you wish to load and how much do you shoot.

The best thing you could do for yourself is grab Lymans 49th reloading manual at sportsmans warehouse or BPS. Good instructions and list of equipment you will need, not to mention the most important item you will need; load data.

after doing a bit of research, talking to many reloaders (one who did it for a living), i ended up spending the cash to purchase the RCBS Rock Chucker master reloading kit. It comes with virtually everything you need to start on reloading. All you really need to get going besides the kit would be a shell holder, reloading dies for the caliber you will reload, powder, primers, brass, bullets, and patience. One suggestion I would make would be to get as many reloading manuals as you can. Most of the manuals put out by bullet manufacturers (Hornady, Sierra, etc) only show the loads for their specific bullets. The Lyman book does give loads for a variety of bullet manufacturers, but not all the bullets out there. One piece of advice given to me was to get as many manuals as you can, and hold on to the old ones (some loads you like may get deleted when they update manuals.) The biggest suggestion would be to read the procedures several times before trying it, and taking your time.
