I recall he was loading 357 magnum, but not what bullet weight, but 5 grains more would be 4.5% of a 110 grain bullet.

Back to topic a bit ...
I recently bought a Hornady Classic kit. It had most everything to get started. I bought a few more items like a tumbler, dies sets, etc.
Before I considered doing this I found a person in Columbus who advertises NRA Metallic reloading classes on the NRA site. It was a good class and was what I needed to get me started. Oh, and I almost forgot, I didn't know it at the time but Hornady has a special deal this year for near free bullets when you buy certain items.

The Hornady deal one of the reasons I got the Progressive LnL a year and a half ago. At the time it was 1,000 bullets with the purchase of the press. I think it's down to 500 now. Not sure how much I've loaded since then but it's at least 20,000 rds of various calibers. Mainly .45 & 9mm but some .38 and .40.
