    I taught myself how to reload last year. The internet was the only way I was able to do it. Youtube videos were the most help as reloading is certainly something you need to see to understand. The written instructions make much more sense after some of the videos. I found some good ones by searching the specific model of reloading supplies I would be using on the internet.

I never shoot with a hot barrel with no more than three shots fired between cooling. Keep the barrel clean as well and site your rifle in at elevations that are near the elevations of your hunt. Being good at this game is much more difficult than the novice realizes. I also use the power setting I sighted in with to shoot with in the field, especially at long range. Just a few thoughts from a guy who has been doing this for years.
    I can understand not having internet access, but I would strongly recommend trying to find something to watch if at all possible. There are some decent books out there, but nothing can replace seeing it and having someone explain it as they go along. I can't recommend any specifically, but it would probably be worth it to find a DVD on the subject.

    Hornady's reloading manual is pretty good about explaining things.

    I strongly recommend you pick up "The ABC's of Reloading", as well as a good reloading manual or two. I was basically self taught, from books and the internet, but if you know of somebody who could show you the basics, I'd recommend that if possible too. Lots of articles on reloading online. Once you read a book or two you will know what to search for on the internet.
