Ammunition reloading video tutorials by ammosmith.com - ammosmith.com is your friend.

Single stage press. Buy a Forster Co-AX Bar none. Case trimmer, buy a WFT case trimmer.

    hmmm... a What The _uck case trimmer??? now I've seen everything.. !!!!

    get a manual too, if you are truly curious, to find out what all goes into it.. its really your self interest that drives you to reload (also a little anal retentiveness in the details helps).. videos helps a bunch too, but, honestly if you decide to get into it, you really need to grab a manual like Lyman, Sierra, Hornady, etc and read the front section.. a world of info right there in a couple chapters! imagine that, A BOOK !!!

    ps.. that is too broad a question,, do some research and get back here, there are plenty of members on here that are more than willing to help out in specifics...

    Worlds Finest Trimmer It really is awesome. Size you brass then run it in the trimmer super fast and super repeatable results.

    Thank you everyone for your combined experience and knowledge.
    I do have one question, which came to mind after the Boston marathon Bombing.
    Is it going to become harder to buy the powder used for reloading?
    Those idiots used fireworks to obtain their powder but, I wonder if that might lead to a crack-down on reloading powder availability?

    I think I ended up spending about 750$ initially but at the core of my equipment was a Forster co-ax press, Wilson case trimmer and an RCBS rangemaster 750 powder scale. I ended up finishing out with a Redding model 3 powder drop, and a Forster bench priming tool for faster priming over the press mounted seater and better feel. Soon after that I ended up buyin a 21st century 6mm expander die, neck trimmer tool for 6mm as well as their concentricity gauge.

    I don't even wanna think about it.....You know they'll probably try, knowing this anti-gun administration that's a bunch of anti-american tricksters.

    If you don't like this country, leave it the hell alone, and go somewhere else where they're already screwed, and don't allow guns and freedom. Quit trying to ruin our country, too.
