Green and ready

So,
I am working on setting up my reloading station. I am looking at making my own bullets.
Does anyone here currently make there own 9mm 147gr rounds? Can I be an apprentice to see this in action?

There is a thread for learning to reload with members here. Check this link and post on the last page:

By the way, generally, you will he loading cartridges. One can also cast or swage bullets. Producing swaged jacketed bullets can be done but that is specialized process.

Knowing your location would also be of benefit.

If you have any interest in casting bullets the Cast Boolits Forum is a must visit.

I dont make 9mm bullets but I can show you how to cast 45 cal if you like. I dont do swaging, just run the cast bullets thru a size and lube press
