Must haves for the longrange shooters reloading bench?

I keep getting bugged by the wife for a list of things that I would like for Christmas. I was wondering what some of you would recommend as very beneficial equipment for reloading. I have all of the basics, but was wondering about suggestions for somethings that I might not know about. I know that I am lacking in tools to measure neck tension and thickness. Any good books on reloading for extreme accuracy would be good to.

I told her that a rifle would be nice and she just laughed.

A good neck thickness mic along with a good neck turning tool would be a good option , also a concentricy to check the runout of your loaded rounds would also be good.

Here is a good, very detailed book on reloading.

"Handloading for Competition: making the target bigger" by Glen D. Zediker

I wish I had read this book 5 years ago.

Other items that you might need or want to upgrade.

Good Digital calipers
Concentricity gauge
Stoney point gauges
Log books

?? its tough, as we don't know what you have now.

Yeah, I guess that would help.
I have a good dial and a good digital caliper. I also have the stoney point bullet comperator and oal gauge. I have a good log book. I have a couple of pretty good scales, but I don't think that she is wanting to drop enough cash to get a scale that would be much better. However it never hurts to ask so if you have a really good scale that you could recommend it might be helpful.

I use the RCBS chargemaster setup as my scale and powder dispenser.
MidwayUSA - RCBS ChargeMaster 1500 Powder Scale and Dispenser Combo 110 Volt

If she'll drop enough $$'s to get it, jump at the chance.

If you don't have the Zediker book and are interested in what it takes to make near perfect ammo, his book is a must have.
