Which Kit for First Time Reloader?
Own a 300wm looking to get into reloading finally. I don't want the top dollar kit as I simply don't have the funds for it. I'm looking at the Hornady Lock-n-Load Classic Reloading Kit ($300 @ bass pro). Includes -
"The Hornady® Lock-N-Load® Classic™ Reloading Kit features the Lock-N-Load Classic single-stage press, Lock-N-Load™ powder measure, magnetic scale, reloading handbook, three Lock-N-Load die bushings, primer catcher, Positive Priming System™, handheld priming tool, universal reloading block, chamfering and deburring tool, primer turning plate, and One Shot™ case lube."
Or the Lee Breech Lock Challenger Kit ($150 @ bass pro) Includes -
Reload your own ammo at home with the Lee Breech Lock Challenger Kit. This quality single-stage press kit contains everything but the dies for reloading. Made for reloaders who like to prime off the press, the durable, single stage Breech Lock Challenger Press features a Lever Prime System and Breech Lock Quick Change die system. Giving you the strength of a strong O frame and compound leverage lever, the Challenger also comes with one Breech Lock quick-change bushing for quick and accurate die changes. The Primer pocket cleaner cleans both large and small primer pockets while the Auto Prime XR hand priming tool and Auto-Prime Shell Holders quickly prime the cartridges again. Perfect Powder Measure, Safety Scale, and Powder Funnel help you deliver perfectly sized loads every time. The cutter and lock stud tool trims cases with a base diameter less than .475, while the chamfer tool deburrs the cases after trimming for smoother and easier reloading. One tube of resizing lube for easier sizing. Comes with detailed instructions.
I like that the Hornady comes with the digital scale already, plus the Hornady Kit has a mail in rebate for 500 free bullets. But I'm just not sure. I have a few books on reloading that I plan on reading but until then I have no knowledge of what kit I should look at. If anyone has any good suggestions please let me know. It would be a great help
