Re: New To Reloading: what else do I need?
With all due respect Gilbert, it's your money and you con do what you want. This is just my opinion.
Things you NEED to reload
A manual, press, set of dies, shellholder, priming tool, (if your press doesn't have one), chamfer/deburring tool, powder funnel, case lube, beam scale, caliper, reloading block and obviously components.
Things you SHOULD have
Another manual, primer pocket brush and uniform tool, flash hole deburrer, headspace gauge, case trimmer, bullet puller.
Things you'll WANT
Another manual, powder dump, Case tumbler/media separator.
Most of the above can be had for under $500 and you wont be cutting corners. By the time you add in components to your 2 kits you'll have well over $1000 in it.
Other things can be added for ease/speed or BR accuracy if you choose but the equipment above will make you more than adequate ammo.
The most important tool is you. Pay attention to detail and be consistent.
