turret press with powder measure
9mm dies&die box
3 Midway 9mm loading blocks
1 Lee primer pocket cleaning tool
shell holder
3 extra turrets
4 powder disk
170 9mm brass
instruction sheets
Redding powder scale
RCBS Calipers
MTM shooter's box
if you want clean brass you will need to invest in a case cleaner. so Merry Christmas Glockster.

Very genorous! Does my heart good to see there are people like you out there. Too many talk about Karma and doing right too little come through. I know this will come back to you full circle. On a side note you inspired me and I just gave away some spare dies, shell holder and small parts in another thread. Nothing compared to what you did. Wish I had more I could do here, but it looks like you done it already!

I believe I have an old Siera hand gun reloading Manual I can send you out too. I got it used at a garage sale and never looked through it. I believe it is hand gun only. Many companys have reduced the charges over the years but it is something to start with. send me a PM with your address and I will send it out to you next week some time. Just remember to check the load data online and start low and work up.

n2extrm,
thanks for the kind words. at 61 and having been loading since 1969(started with a Lee loader) i have aquired quite a bit of reloading equipment some of which i do not use anymore but are still in good working order. rather than seeing it collect dust i would rather see it go to good use. in this case helping a new shooter get into the reloading hobby.
i am just fortunate enough to be in a position today to where i can help others who can use the help. and maybe somewhere down the road they in turn will pass on the kindness that was shown to them. that in itself will be gratification enough and also ensures that the hobby and shooting sport continues. by the way n2extrn thanks for helping Glockster with the reloading manual. i am sure that he will appreciate it very much."MERRY CHRISTMAS"

Rick

So Rick dropped off the equipment today and it was very pleasant meeting him and his lovely girlfriend.

I am just absolutely thrilled to have this great equipemtn, and eternally grateful. Rick hooked me up with a scale, calipers, reloading trays, dies, and three extra turret heads. Oh and over 200 rounds of 9mm brass. I'm all set to go.

I have sore thumbs and a callus from hand cleaning over 150 primer pockets this morning.

Pics soon to follow as soon as I buy some double A's for my camera.

Thanks again Rick, and n2extrm for the great reloading book (which I've received).

So now that you've had that really excellent gift a couple of weeks, how many rounds have you loaded up?

I will mainly be reloading handgun rounds, but want to one day load my own shotgun shells and rifle cartridges. But to start, I think 9mm rounds will suffice.

What is a very high quality, fairly efficient, affordable reloading press?

Also, what will I need to get started? Please throw out some ballpark prices.

Thanks everyone.
