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.
Thanks for posting this thread been thinking about trying to do reloads just never knew where to start. This was really very helpful.
Hey, just wanted to say thanks. I've been wanting to reload for years and finally got some money saved. lol just in time for everything to be out of stock. But oh well. This has been a great help.
Thanks guys. Glad this helped some people.
lol right there with you. I'm giving it 6 more months to cool down, have some EBay and Craigslist alerts already set!
Thanks for the great information. It's really important to noobs like me.
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.
Thanks for this. I was also looking and didn't see it. So if I want to reload 3 different calibers i just need additional die sets ? Looks like with those sets I can just order for one caliber.
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.
Here is my contribution:
Nice mobile setup
Thanks Colorado4wheel for sharing your equipment knowledge with us soon to be reloaders.
Just bid on a Hornady lock n load. I am less concerned about saving money than just having more control over my supply of ammo. I may not get it and I may change my mind but I am interested.
Wow. Somehow the original text got all messed up. I fixed it I think. Let me know if you see anything that looks off.
Can someone give a rough estimate on the cost of a very basic reloading set up for 9mm? I will be investing on one by the summer. Thanks
