Reloading DVD

Started reloading last summer. Had a friend help me get started but as I go along he is not always available to answer questions or help me. I have 2 reloading manuals but still have questions pop up. Cabela's have a RCBS and Hornadys DVDs. Has anyone used either of these? Which would you recommend? Which is most informative? Any help appreciated.

I haven't watched any DVD's but I doubt there is much more info in there than in a reloading book. I have Hornady book and it is pretty detailed in explaining the entire process. Between that and instructions that come with dies, tools, etc... I'm usually pretty good. I think the NRA offers reloading classes that you can take but I'm not sure if there is any in your area. Everyone has their own style and techniques. Me I usually load small batches of 20-50 at a time depending on what I'm shooting and i'm pretty meticulous about it. My Uncle on the other hand loads rounds by the thousands (without a progressive press) and is not so much into quality as he is quantity.

Check out YouTube. There is a lot of info. I would look for sites posted by Hornady, Sierra, Midway etc.

I started last year also. I bought and read 4 manuals, read "The A B C's of Reloading", watched a bunch of YouTube videos, and read as much as I could on websites. As repetitive as the manuals seem after you read one, I can say that I at least got something out of every book I read. To answer your question, I bought a video called "Handloading Beyond the Basics". It gets more in depth with accuracy than I was ready for at the time but I will watch it again from time to time as I get deeper into this hobby.

I have an experienced co-worker I could ask questions, but at home in the evening when I was making bullets is when questions arose and I used YouTube a lot. Just make sure you use the major manufacturers vids instead of some toothless weirdo missing half of his face.

I left that part out but that is what I meant.
