Been reading here a while but never registered.
I've been shooting a .30-06 for about 5 years for whitetail and love the gun.
I've was bit by the bug to buy a new Winchester M70 about 3 months ago and I couldn't find one in the caliber I wanted anywhere that wasn't used. (I wanted the new action)
I finally settled on a Model 70 Super Grade in .300 WSM
. I really wanted a 30-06 because of the versatility of the round and I don't do much that requires a magnum but the gun is simply unavailable over here. (NY)
I topped the gun off with a Leupy VX-3L in 3.5-10x and I love the combo.
The ammo is far from cheap, the "good" stuff is costing a little over 2.50 a round.
If I were to start reloading it would be to get quality ammo and reuse my brass for a savings that will hopefully over time pay for itself.
I'm just looking to be pointed in the right direction for reloading, I've been looking at the redding big boss 2 for a press but after that i'm pretty unsure what makes a quality setup. I'm trying to avoid buying something that will end up on ebay in a month or make the hobby more of a chore than it should be.
