New Equipment

OK guys, I am sure this has been answered many times prior and i apologize for that but if you guys had to start all over what would you guys do?

Buy a reloading kit?
Piece together?

I want to reload precision ammunition for a .300WM, .300WSM and a 7mm-08. Just not sure if the kits will give me the equipment i am looking for and will need. I want to make sure my powder scales are dead on along with all other equipment being as accurate as possible...

im not worried about the money if its worth spending.
thanks,
nick-

Re: New Equipment

Reloading is like any other hobby or trade where tools are involved. Only experience and time spent will produce the proper tools for you. If I had to start over I would duplicate what I have. There is not a "kit" on the planet that would satisfy me as a onetime deal.

But then again if you don't know what you need or which tools are best for you a kit might be a good place to start. Then as your expertise develops so will the proper tools.

Re: New Equipment

Yes completely agree that time and experience = the perfect tools. But with your guys's knowledge, is there anything I should replace from the beginning tooling wise which may or may not give me the results I want from a kit?

Re: New Equipment

There are no magic tools!

It's not the tools that make the difference it's you. You could look at ten different fellas reloading benches and the tools will be different and each will turn out high quality loads. In the hands of a craftsman a mediocre tool will produce quality.

Here is one tool that will help you turn out high quality loads. A book by Glen D. Zediker "Handloading for Competition" ISBN 0-9626925-9X
