Welcome to ReloadingBasics.com! The only site dedicated to containing everything you will need in one place, at one time, from the decision to reload to the completion of your first safely assembled cartridges!

This site contains LOTS of video material, highlighting everything you will need to get started safely in the exciting world of reloading your own ammunition!

We review all of the basic equipment you will need to get started.  Then we review all of the safe practices you need to follow: how to select good cases, how to determine safe loads, how to prep cases, prime cases, how to safely measure powder, and most importantly, how to assemble all of the various materials into a safe, effective round.  There is no stone left unturned for the beginner.

iStock_000002042286LargeThere is a massive amount of information about reloading in a whole host of places – on line, in books, in reloading manuals, magazines, etc.  The problem isn’t finding the material. The problem is finding it all in one place, and then in making all of the right choices for your load, that you are reloading.

To cap it all off, and to help you with that final step of actually reloading your caliber, we will have entire videos that show the reloading of a specific caliber from start to finish!  After you’ve reviewed the equipment videos and selected your equipment, and after you’ve reviewed the “safe practices” videos, you can watch and work along with the video to assemble your favorite cartridge!  We’ll start with the venerable 38 Special and 357 Magnum, 44 Special (or magnum) and 45 Colt to cover major revolver cartridges,  then to the ever-popular 45 ACP and 9 mm to cover some of the most popular pistol calibers.  In rifle, we’ll do the new standard, the .223, the old standard 30-30 Winchester, the popular .308, and .30-06 Springfield.iStock_000000235024Medium

So leave us a message, and come back and visit as soon as we launch!  (We expect to be loading the first “overview” videos and many “how-to” videos in September, 2014.  So register now and get on our email list so we can notify you every time we post something new.  There is no obligation to signing up for a fee membership, and we will not under any circumstances share, sell, or mis-use your email addresses.)

We’re even adding a “Reloader’s Marketplace”!  There will be listings from all over the United States for reloading equipment for sale.  COMING SOON!

    Thank you for the e-mail welcoming me. I’m very happy to be apart of this site and look forward to your and my continued growth in reloading and information gathering. I just started back in june of this year and already have learned so much. I’m looking forward to learning more and more. I’m 53 and I tell everyone I’ll stop learning when the good Lord takes me home. Thanks again.

    Thanks for accepting me! I 1st started reloading in mid 1972. I’m retired so have plenty of time to help others. I don’t claim to be any kind of expert, & don’t play 1 on TV, but I have picked up a thing or 2 along the way.

    NEVER trust ANY reloading data online or ANYWHERE else unless it’s online loading data from powder or bullet manufacturers or manuals! I NEVER give out data on loads I’ve worked up in MY guns & deemed safe in MY guns. Since you haven’t seen others’ guns condition or checked headspace on them, you don’t know if your loads are safe in their firearms or not. The only thing I’ll do is quote recommended loads from manuals.

      Walter, that’s one of the wonderful things about reloading. People with very serious and limiting disabilities can enjoy reloading. Reloaders are a wonderful group of people very willing to help each other. If you ever need help figuring out how to do something, just post a comment requesting suggestions. Many of the reloading sites on Facebook are great places to get ideas and support as well! RB.Com
