Once you get the hang of reloading you'll be shooting MORE than 50-60 rounds a year!!!
1) RCBS Reloader Special press
2) RCBS 505 scale ( or 10-10 if you feel rich)
3) Powder drop tube ( I prefer the RCBS but any will do actually)
4) Dies for your caliber. Lee dies are as good as anyones and its not like your going to wear them out!
5) Lube...I prefer either the Hornady "wax" or "Imperial"
6) Loading block ( buy from Midway and get a Franklin. Good as anyones and lots cheaper than some
7) Vernier...Definately needed
8) Reloading manual
9) Reloading components ( bullets; powder; primers...etc
10) A place to setup and quiet so you arent bothered.
11) I forgot a tool for chamfering the inside and outside of case mouths
If you cant do it with that...you aint gonna do it!!
P.S. Cheap E-BAY. You can get used presses...etc...etc that are CLEAN and havent been used much at all for less than 1/2 price of new. Dont buy some old rusty S*** because new looking stuff comes online all the time.
