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.

Get both the Hornady bullet and cartridge comparator set and good calipers. Don’t over work your brass and use all that freebore to find your best accuracy

I just ordered the 378 extractor and ejector for my mark V! Thinking of a 300 Norma! Had thought about the 30-378 but something about the Norma keeps calling me!!

don't forget powder funnels, the Saturn caliber specific ones from Precision Reloading are great.I don't care for the RCBS plastic funnel.you will love the RCBS warranty if you need it

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
