Re: advice for getting into reloading
Hello, gents. thanks for all the help so far. i read the link above, in addition to the chapters 1-5 of the Speer #14 manual(have a feeling they will be read again, and again). This is what i've amassed so far, but what else do i need/need to have to facilitate reloading? Rock Chucker Supreme Press, 5-0-5 Powder Scale, Uniflow™ Powder Measure, Speer No. 14 Reloading Manual, Hand-Priming Tool, Hex-Key Set, Universal Case Loading Block, Case-Lube Kit, Powder Funnel and Deburring Tool, rcbs die sets, bullets, powder, primers, Lyman case trimmer, calipers, lyman powder trickler. Any suggestions for which chronograph, tumber/media to purchase, as well as any other tools? Do i need o.a.l. guages to start with, or should i, or can i start reloading to my factory ammo length, ? do you have to purchase every bullet manufacturers reloading manual, or is there published online load data? 257 weatherby/300wm/7mmRM are the calibers my once neighbor reloads for me, all using accubonds. at this point, i have zero complaints with nosler accubonds, they have killed many a deer and hogs, most DRT. when i start reloading after deer season, Feb. here in TX, i want to have everything i might need, don't want to wait on mail order, etc.
