So, I ended up with a fancier press than what I originally planned on getting. I was going to get a Lee Pro 1000, but wound up with an unused Dillon Square Deal B for 9mm at a fair price below retail. I was chatting with some people during a range class about starting to reload and one of the guys had one he purchased a while back but never set up due to changes in personal circumstances.
Will be getting a reloading manual. I saw one on the Dillon site when I was checking the prices of the SDB. It’s the Complete Reloading Manual for 9mm. Also getting a powder scale. Already have a good set of calipers.
All I’m ever going to reload is 9mm 124gr and 147gr FMJ for range use. I do not plan on competing. I normally position my target at 10-15 yards. Once in a while, I would do 25 yards with my AR9 or CX4 Storm. I mostly use an indoor range so, I prefer as little smoke as possible.
There’s a variety of powders available for pistol loads out there. What do you guys use for 9mm and why?
Thanks in advance.
