Well, I've been reloading shotgun shells for a long time now, but recently I've been thinking about making a custom carbine load with slower burning powder to take advantage of a carbine's longer barrel so I can get some nice high velocities, unlike the +100 fps you get with factory ammo. Trouble is, I don't really have a clue as to how to reload pistol ammo. From what I've read, the dies resize the round, then punch out the primer and put a bell in it, then crimp the bullet into the case. Seems simple enough, but what equipment do I really need? I'm just looking to do a little experimentation, not reload as my main source of ammo, so I don't need to be cranking out 300 rounds per hour or anything crazy like that, 50 per hour would be more than fine. I'm looking to get into this cheap, remember, I'm a student with no job who just blew his bank account on a new gun! Advise me!!
