I hope this isn't already beaten to death or anything, but I recently purchased an yugo m48 and now i'd like to learn how to reload. Partially because it interests me and partially because ammo is pricey. I'm wondering if there is a reloader out there similar to the lee classic reloader. I'd use it, but they don't list 8mm mauser in the description. I want to get away inexpensive because the mauser is all I have right now (thus i need only reload 1 caliber) and i just want to get started. any advice is EXTREMELY appreciated. :-B-:

I use Lee original (now classic) loaders for my three bolt action calibers. 6.5x55, 22-250, and .308 winchester. I can't find any currently produced kits for the 8mm. I'd suggest you call your local gun or pawn shops. I see alot of these oldies sitting on the shelf. Besides the loader itself, might see if you can get some new brass from Lapua or someone. Midway USA may be able to help. Other tools----primer pocket brush, case mouth reamer, case trimmer, calipers, powder funnel, load book for your caliber, maybe a chamber OAL gauge and headspace gauge. If you don't look forward to polishing your used brass one piece at a time, a tumbler and some crushed walnut hulls or corn cob.

wow. thanks friend. after asking around, i learned that i have easy access to everything but the specifics... dies, powder, primer, slugs. im planning on reloading my spent brass for now, to keep cost down. this is pretty exciting.
