Reloading is a stress reliever just like shooting. I do not reload a lot at one time. Normally just a few hundred rounds . I gave up all calibers a long time ago, and now just shoot 9mm. (I also own about five 22.s) I have a turret Press and enjoy making my own loads for various weapons. I shoot about 2-3 times a week and buy quite a bit of ammo for my main shooting and training. I started off with just reading as much as possible and used a Lee Hand Press and would just focus on one box at a time. Later, I would use the hand press in stages. Prime 100 rounds, then another step of 100 etc. Personally I think the best way to learn is to just go slowly, load a box, see how they shoot and then due your tweaking with different powders etc. It is gratifying to shoot ammo that you yourself designed and see how it shoots for a particular weapon. There is no need to rush the learning process. Learning is half the fun. Actually I enjoyed the hand press and still use it.
