If i was to buy this:
Hornady Lock-N-Load Classic Single Stage Press Kit
What else would I need on order to start reloading 308 ammo?
I know i obviously need bullets, and i wanna try out hornadys 178gr bthp, which has a .53 BC. i know ill need powder too, and it seems like varget is pretty much what everyone uses. But what else? I keep reading online about dies and case trimming but i have no idea what that stuff is.
Im trying to get into 1000yd f-class and maybe a few other types of competitions, but i cant find any
damn ammo and what little i do find either wont work at 1000yds or its just one box of 20, which isnt even enough to practice, or its $60 for a box of 20, which is plain outrageous...
I have a Marlin X7VH 308, which has a 26" heavy barrel, a 1:12 twist, and an adjustable trigger. I also have a Bushnell Elite 6500 Tactical 4.5-30x50. With that setup i was able to shoot a .43" center to center group at 100 yards with winchester hunting ammo.
Thats just a little background on me so you know what im "gunning for" lol... Pun intended...
