    It will cost you approx $350-400 to start loading from scratch, even less than half if you started out with the Lee hand tools. Then add a press and dies when you can afford it.
    IMO, a better way to go than buying factory ammo that is grossly over priced!

    Jim is right on. If you shoot more than 3 boxes of premium bullets a year, you would have a good start on a quality reloading set. Doesn't take much to get started and used equipment is usually sold because folks have upgraded, not because they are have worn something out. I haven't worn any of my original equipment out yet, and I have been using it since I was 13-14 years old and I am 32 now. Scotty

    desert hunter- my opinion : you can get drawn for coues yearly. you are better off with a bullet at the lighter end and that is "soft" . 7mm 120 baltip or 139 horn, 140 berger. for a 300 a 150 , or a 165-168. you can save a bunch by handloading

    Re: Factory loads

    well maybe i had better just reload, becuase my dad has the press, powder chucker, everything. all i really need is the powder, brass, bullets, primers. but i thought it might be better to shoot factory loads until i had enough brass for reloading. how should i go about getting the brass? should i just buy the bag of it at like bass pro or cabelas? or buy some once shot brass from someone else? and i guess i will change my question to what is a good load to start with and work from? for both 300 win and 7mm
