Welcome aboard. What all equipment (reloading and shooting) do you have?

I don't have any reloading supplies yet. I'm just trying to get some good ideas on how and what I need first. Ive been doing a lot of reading on tss and purchased some turkey rounds from Apex for this spring. I have a 12 and 20 Guage and hunt deer and turkey. I want to expand to ducks and boar seeing how they have alot around here.

A used MEC 600 jr or Sizemaster would be my suggestion. Look at Craigslist or Ebay. You can reload slugs, buckshot, and non-toxic shot for waterfowl. Reloading is a hobby within itself. You can make shells better than factory shells.

Billy, good to hear from you.

For those just getting started and look to be loading relatively low volume TSS primarily, many find it cheaper and more convenient to go the roll crimp route.

If you're starting from scratch, you'll need scales to weigh the shot and powder, a crimp die to roll crimp the shells (attaches to a power drill), and something like a hull vise to hold the shells while you roll crimp them. All that can be found here for around $100 investment:
