I actually bought the Sierra book yesterday and am already reading it. I have the Nosler, Lee, Hornaday and Speer on order. The Lyman I'm waiting on because a new 49th version comes out in June and no sense buying this and then having to buy another a month later IMO.
I actually haven't bought a thing yet except for the books.
I want to read first, twice, and then get advice from those in the know. There are a ton of reloading products out there. I want to buy once, what works well, is reliable and repeatable, and will be durable.
Some of the stuff is on sale right now like the ChargeMaster so I want to jump on some items that are must haves even though I'm not ready to use it yet just to start packing away items I know I would need to buy anyways.
If the powder measure, scale and press are the for sure, must have items, does everyone think that the ChargeMaster and Hornady Classic Single Stage press are good items to start with?
I like the idea of the single stage press for a newbie like myself instead of the all in one progressive presses. I can always go that route later if I want to at a future time.
