RCBS makes a good kit at a reasonable price,
I like bonanza dies( Forester).

for economy's sake, check out the equipment that Lee offers -- they make the best budget stuff out there. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: started on reloading

doc-

I'm living in Southington , and my cousin that i shoot with the most is in Bristol.

ive been looking around on some site for presses and the components and was wondering if the treads for all the dies are interchangable like a hornady press with bonanza dies?
thanks aaron
God Bless

Shooter,
Where in CT are you? I'm in the Groton area. As for reloading stuff check the Frankford Arsenal SS Press at Midway. I've got one and it's solid like rock but less $$$ than RCBS.

Tip: Buy good dies now and save money later, Fortser or Redding.

Since I have discovered the mysteries of the ogive w/ a Stoney Point Comparator the need for a micrometer seating die has become overwhelming. My groups have also been cut measurably which is significant because they were MOA or slightly less [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] . Give me a shout and depending on where your at I can hook you up w/ some good people here in CT.

Cheers [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Yup most all the dies are in the standard thread pitch, (7/8 X 14 I think). If your not sure just ask before you drop the $$$.
