Well, after a lot of deliberation, reading numerous reviews/threads, watching too many youtube videos, but most of all, on my wife's insistance, the 550 ordered tonight from Brian Enos. Got the press, dies and strong mount. the rest I don't see to be crucial right now. This would be my first swim in the reloading waters. the entry price is hefty, but i also ordered (from midway) the bullet puller, digital calipers, tumbler, 500 Winchester bullets, and some ammo boxes and from Brian the digital scale. already have heavy & ugly bench , two reloading books (ABC, and Lyman), primer flip tray, CCI primers, some misc 9mm brass, and I think the only thing missing is powder. Going to bass pro tomorow for Unique (did not want to pay haz mat shipping surcharge) Please be patient with yet another noob, and share words of wisdom! Happy New Years to all, and will see you around a lot more once this is all set up!
