I've been saving multi caliber pistol and rifle brass for awhile. I'd like to start buying reloading equipment and take the plunge. I don't really want to start small with a beginner setup and was thinking about purchasing a Hornady Lock-N-Load AP. I also thought I'd start by reloading 9 mm ammo and then expand. But now I realize I have some questions about reloading procedures and how to best use a progressive press. 1. I like the idea of wet tumbling with the primer pockets removed so everything looks shiny. Do people run their dirty brass through the automatic case feeder just to remove the primer before tumbling? Doesn't this step also resize the brass? Resizing dirty brass seems wrong to me. 2. Isn't case length trimming, chamfering and deburring done after a clean case is resized? Wouldn't this step be skipped using a progressive press? 3. Is case length trimming, chamfering and deburring only practically done on rifle cartridges? Is a single stage press preferred for rifle reloading? 4. How does one best use a progressive press to include all the important aspects of reloading? In other words, what is your sequence of reloading steps, including brass preparation, so that you can reload efficiently? It seems to me that a progressive press would be best used with all new brass. Can you add the brass preparation step and still use a progressive press well? Thanks. This is a little confusing. Any advice or clarification would be greatly appreciated.
