    76, that should get you going. Positive you'll add and upgrade like most of us as your reloading progresses.

    Ty!! I am sure I will also, so much of this it seems you really don’t know some things until you start doing it!

    If there are any items that y’all think would be nice for me to add let me know and I will put it on my list of things to get over time!!

    Thanks for all the help! Really have enjoyed this forum!!

    They vary a bit, I find the Hornady a little conservative on the powder use/velocities.

    I would recomment to have at least 3 to see what is a good starting point, I have Nosler, Sierra and Hornady, Speer info is available online.
