Hello all...I recently was able to find my grandfather's S&W Model 53 chambered in .22 Rem Jet and I would like to put some rounds through it...(It does have a .22LR cylinder as well but I want to use it for it's original intended purpose)...Seeing as how the .22 Jet is pretty much a "dead" cartridge I was wondering what would be involved in reloading...Note that I have absolutely ZERO knowledge about reloading and would be starting from scratch (with no equipment yet either) but I tend to pick things up pretty quickly once I dive in...And considering how things are going lately in general in the firearms world, it'd probably be a good idea for me to start reloading anyway...So, what would be involved in getting started? (And a ballpark figure of what that would cost me)...What are the approximate cost savings of handloading vs buying ammo at retail? (say, 9mm for example)...Thanks in advance for any and all info...
