Default Looking for Reloading Tutor/Mentor in South OC Near MV

Greetings all. Long time shooter and collector just puller the trigger (as it were) on a first class Dillon 650 set up. I'm looking for a mentor to help out with set up introduction etc. General "adult supervision" until I get my reloading legs. Closer to Mission Viejo the better. No hurry as it's 6-8 weeks to get the darn thing, but I figure it's better to start early.

I have a 650 and live in Lake Forest. Send me a PM. I have been reloading on the 650 for about 6 years.

Sorry cant help with setup since Im Red (Hornady) but theres at least 3 of us Red guys in Lake Forest. Another guy here putting together a monthly reloading/refreshment meeting.

Maybe all of us should meetup in April? Blue, Red dont matter on basics. Besides we can all learn to get along cant we??

Get several reloading manuals and study them "Lyman #49 and the Hornady manual". Read and study the Dillon manual and use it! Take your time. concentrate on the procedure , read the manual and go slow ! Reloading is easy I have been doing it since the 1970s and bought a Dillon 550 in 1991 and I consider myself far from an expert. I enjoy the process .Take baby steps.... what took you so long !!!
