Sounds like you need to spend some time with your head in a reloading manual first.

It sounds like you are quite a ways from being ready to hand load ammunition. Please take it slow and steady, research, research, research.


Here is a better place to start than asking a question in the welcome center: http://www.xdtalk.com/forums/hand-loaded-ammunition/28387-getting-started-reloading.html


Also, buy a couple of manuals or four, start with ABC's of reloading and I like the Lyman manual 49th edition.


Welcome to the madness!

I agree with everyone else that you need to read a ton more before you start reloading. But I will answer your questions.

1) Yes you can tumble them with no primer. It's actually better to do so as it cleans the primer pocket somewhat.

2) Correct amount of powder for your bullet depends on the powder brand and flavor. Buy a few books, read up, reread it. Then begin slowly.

Oh and welcome
