Lee Classic Loader Kit .30-06

4895 50
My wife ordered me one of these in .30-06 for an early Christmas gift:

I really like the idea of something I can bring to deer camp and make rounds on the spot. This looks like a good way to learn reloading, .30-06 is a good round for a kit like this, and no major space or cost commitment. Right now I don’t have the space for a proper press as it is (I did see those Lee portable hand presses but that feels like overkill for me right now). The kits are highly rated online, and I know a few people who have used them and liked them. I also ordered a case prep kit with a chamfer and a few other tools, and already have a smithing hammer and a funnel. I have some ok ones, but I’ll be getting some better calipers in the near future.

I really want to keep the whole package very basic and small, but is there anything else I should consider? Anyone have any experience with these kits? Any other advice would also be appreciated.

Using the measuring cups are not accurate enough for my use and limits you with loads. I would at least get a decent beam scale and weight each charge more accurately.
You can get pretty good results with a powder scoop. Are you trying for the tightest group you can get? if so what type of shooting are you doing? For the OP I would recommend this so you can try different loads.
