I think you should include a bullet puller. It is early on when people make mistakes and they want to pull their work apart. They need the equipment to pull it apart safely.

This thread has been very helpful, thanks! I have been an occasional reloader on an RCBS single stage for the last 20 years. Until recently, I loaded only 30-06. I just got into loading straight wall and got tired of the single stage real quick with that. Had it not been for this thread, I would have never known about these options and the reasoning behind the different choices. Awesome info! Thanks again.

The Kempf Kit does not seem to be available any longer. I ordered exactly your Lee Classic Turrent set up recommendations from Midsouth Shooters Supply, Ebay, and the Dillon Eliminator scale from Dillon. I appreciate the effort you put into posting this information. I have been toying with the idea of reloading for a few years, but just made the first investment. Your sticky reaffirmed some recommendations and cautions I had read elsewhere, but made it much easier for me to make a decision and cease researching.

For years I ran two Dillon XL650's along with a case timmer and swager on my basement workbench which pretty much left no space for other uses. I sold one XL650 to recover some space but still found the bench cramped for AR building, rifle cleaning, etc. I had a Rockwell "Jawhorse" in my woodshop that I rarely used so I built a top out of 2x4s and 3/4" plywood with enough space for the XL650 on one end, a RCPS Rock Chucker on the other end, a trimmer and swager in between, and room for other necessary supplies and equipment. The jawhorse has 1 ton of clamping force and solidly holds the top in place. It worked like a charm! Everything I need to reload is at hand and and it is rock solid. When not in use I put removable casters under the feet and move it into a corner out of the way. If I need the Jawhorse for someything else, I can easily un-clamp the top and temporarily remove it (with a little help) and then reinstall it.

If space is an issue for reloading, the Jawhorse may be a solution.
