glockadict Posted February 16, 2008 Share Posted February 16, 2008 I have been reading a lot of threads, and reading manuals. I am not new to reloading, just reloading rifle. I am starting with 223 then moving to 308. I have a Dillon 650, and I just purchased the caliber conversion, case feeder plate, dies, swager, and case gauge, all Dillon. I am getting going to purchase a Giraud case trimmer next week. I just wanted to make sure I have everything down before I get into it. The first question is is there any headstamp brass that I should stay away from? Is it alright to swage all my brass? Do I need to separate military, and commercial brass before loading? How many times can 223 and 308 brass be reloaded? Do I have to trim every time I shoot? As far as the order of operation: clean, inspect, lube, size/deprime, trim, swage, remove lube, load, case gauge? I know I have a lot of questions, i just want to verify before I start. Than you for any, and all help. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
