It means that I'm interested in monitoring the thread but have nothing relevant to add to it, I can now just click on "my replies" to follow or review it without having to remember the name & search by title.

Have you watched the various videos for the LCT? Four handle strokes plus a little diddling around with the primer mechanism in addition to case feeding makes reloading somewhat slower than with other progressive presses.
The classic turret is slower than progressives because it's not a progressive.

Next week I should receive empty brass thingys, kinda pointy shiny thingys, ity bity thingys that go pop, a skakey thingy and some black powdery stuff. I think I'm learning all the technical jargon fairly fast.
Hope this goes better than when I tried to raise chickens. They all died.... Never did figure out if I was planting them too deep or watering them too much.

Luckily I have a supply of factory ammo, so I can just save my brass and not have to pay that.

Factoring in bullets, primers and powder pricing...I can do 9mm for .12/round. You can get brass cased 9mm here for 10.99/box + 6.75% sales tax, so that is .2346/round.

Not bad and .40 for me is .16/round

I didn't get the yellow box..but its a reloading scale...the small red box is probably an ammo storage box, the round holder on top is the auto disk riser to put on the pro disk auto measurer.

The yellow box looks like an MTM scale. Be careful with the MTM I have read too many posts about them shifting or not being accurate. The reason I went with the Dillon Eliminator.

I cheaped out on my scaled too...went with the Frankford Arsenal scale on Amazon...it had a solid 4 star review. I'll make sure to calibrate it every time I use it until I can pony up some more cash.

I am a measure twice cut once kinda guy, so I'll make several measurements and work on the conservative side of things to start. I do have some 40 s&w brass I have saved but not much. Hopefully I can make some local connections on free or real cheap brass. lol

Like my LCT.

Now get you some check weight for your scale. Does not matter what scale you use. Use check weights! Calipers, tumbler, bench and you will be ready to go.

Gents, while I have nothing against a good digital scale, the less expensive scales are known for their unreliability. Getting one worth what you paid for it is honestly, a crap shoot. I have personal experience with an inexpensive digital scale that was sold by MidwayUSA, and trust me, it was a pure waste of good money.

Consider that the powder charge is unquestionably the most critical aspect of reloading. You are trusting an inexpensive scale to this aspect, and an over charge (or under charge for that matter) can have disasterous consequences. Please PLEASE be sure that your scale is giving you correct, accurate readings.

What scale would you personally have confidence in and recommend?

Dillon Eliminator or Dillon D-Terminator:

But I would still use the RCBS Check Weights on the same Dillon web page.

I won't recommend or endorse any specific digital scale. Others have done so in this forum, so a search of the topic should bring up many threads in which they are discussed and debated.

I have relied primarily on a beam scale, an old Ohaus 5-0-5 that was inherited back in the early 80's. I did give a cheap digital a trial, and found that it was simply unreliable.

I recently acquired a RCBS Chargemaster 1500 combo that I am using for my rifle rounds, but even with that combo unit that costs upwards of $300 new, I'm checking the throws on my trustworthy 5-0-5.
