Any reloading classes around anymore? Cabela's doesn't seem to offer them anymore.

If you want a good class check out ntrp

http://www.northtexasrifleprecision.com

I did his class. It's a bit pricey but is thorough. It's 1.5 days and includes loading and range time.

Highly recommend

I see more and more people not wanting to do this because of liability....I knew a guy who used to, but stopped because of potential law suits

That seems to me a cop out. I cannot imagine if you let someone reload ammo with you observing that they could have much chance of winning.... Maybe I am wrong but if so its really a sad state we are in.
Next thing you know you won't be able to teach someone how to ride a bike.

I've watched plenty of videos. Have just about all the equipment or is on the way: press, trimmer, tumbler, dies, gauges and powder dispenser etc.

I understand OAL vs base to ogive. I have already measured ogive and can seat according to that measurement.

Just wanted to be aware of any particular safety concerns. Maybe something so basic the guys writing how to articles and making videos leave out because they assume people know.

if you read Speer, Hornady, Nosler Reloading Manuals you will be proficient enough

if you have specific questions buy me a round of wings and beer at Hooters/ Twin Peaks
I'd be happy to answer

The first 10 chapters of the Lee loading manual is a great resource for basic reloading and safety. They push their products here and there, of course, but the basic information is all there and well explained.

Forget the load data until the method is down. Then pick the load data you trust. Some vary wildly. That's the fun part.
