Re: Buying the right equipment the first time? Advise wanted!!!
A lot of items mentions you definately wont need inituatally....and maybe never. But a few items you definately need to even beging are....?
RCBS RockChucker press with shell holders to match your calibers
RCBS Chargemaster Scale
a primer pocket uniformer & flash hole deburrer
K&M expander mandrel
Inside neck chamfer tool
Outside neck chamfer tool
Hornady headspace gauge + inserts
neck lube & imperial sizing wax
usual items e.g. loading blocks, funnel, brushes
some hand primer tool -or- a press mounted ram primer ( I use one on the cheapest Lee C-press loader made)
There are numerous places online to get reloading data BUT you still need various manuals. I Use the Lyman and also the Hodgen "magazine" manuals but have many many pages or printed out data from the internet.
Whatever loading manual you don't have... that's the one you need.
Be careful and most of all....ENJOY
