CONGRATS!! I still remember the feeling I had when I shot my 1st reloads! It was a total sense of accomplishment!! I have since reloaded and shot 1,000s of rounds between my Son and I. The only time I had a problem was with a squib round that got stuck in my older Colt Trooper. As soon as it happened I knew what it was and immediately stopped and took care of the problem.

Keep reloading, and stay SAFE!!

REMEMBER.. IF SOMETHING DOESN'T SOUND RIGHT... STOP IMMEDIATELY, WHEN SAFE; CHECK YOUR FIREARM TO BE SURE EVERYTHING IS O.K.!!

My tip of the day:

Don't load 200 Rounds at once before test firing your load. If you fire the first 10 and they don't shoot right for whatever reason (too much powder, not enough, seating depth, crimp etc) you now have to go back and alter 190 rounds. I always make a handful, test fire them, then mass produce.

I'm glad it went well for you though!!

The people at Master Class gave me a lesson on reloading and walked me through the process. So I did test fire 20 rounds with them, before making 200 totally by myself.

Congrats indeed alistair. I am not too much of a man to admit that remember my first reloads and how much of a sphincter puckering feeling it was pulling that trigger the first few times. Few people appreciate their hands as much as a person about the pull the trigger on their first reloads.

I think that shooting your own reloads and carrying concealed in public are two rites of passage that all shooters should try if possible. It is funny how things that were so nerve racking at first quickly become familiar and almost second nature.
