Re: #1 Tool for Reloading.
Here is the equipment I have upgraded to these are great items as far as I am concerned.
#1, The Redding T-7 turret press. I hate changing dies and trying to get them in the exact depth for consistant seating and shoulder bump. This press made my life a lot easier and my ammo has never been straighter or more consitant. I liked it so mush I recently bought a second one so my son and I can load together.
#2, The RCBS case prep station. It speeds up the most time consuming part of reloading, prepping brass. And my wrists no longer are tired.
#3, Either the RCBScharge master combo powder dispencer or the Lyman 1200. I have both and love both. They are in agreeance in weight, I test and calibrate them often and they are wonderful. I do not miss my beam scale and trickler. They are stored away and I dont see them coming back to the bench top again.
#4, Redding competition bushing dies. Where have you been all my life? Consistant neck tension and very low runout. Longer case life. Nuff said there.
#5, My bench source annealer. Great product that replaced my Ken Light. Way faster with more even results, highly adjustable.
I shoot and load alot. I enjoy doing it too. But anything to smooth or speed the process helps me keep my ammo supply full. I expect consistant precision ammo and these items give it to me. The above items although listed in order of preference, are all great items to me. I really would hate to live with out any of these great products.
