I want to get into reloading and want to no your opinions on the lee classic turret press Or anything recommended. Thanks in advance.
I can't say it any better then Gunnermhr did. That the setup I've been using and it works great. Unless your planning on reloading a ton of ammo a single stage press will meet your needs. The RCBS Rockchucker kit is a great way to get started into relaoding. But any of the major manufacturers kits will do the job. Good luck and happy reloading.Gunnermhr said:Ditto on the RCBS Rockchucker Kit, I like single stage presses. If I shot a lot of pistol, a LOT, I might connsider a turret press but then I have my doubts. Accuracy is my number one goal when reloading and you just can't get that with a turret type press.
Depending what your looking to do, I would stay away from a digital scale, they drift and if you don't keep a close eye on them and you're loads can vary in powder weight, not much but it will affect accuracy. A couple worth while investments for the kit would be a powder trickler and some time down the road a 10-10 scale is a nice upgrade. They come with a 505 scale and they work good I just think the 10-10 is a little more sensitive. I like Reading and RCBS dies the most. Do not buy a case trimmer that uses a collet to hold the case, there is to much inconsistancy in that style. The ultimate case trimmer is the Sinclair micrometer, I think its made by Wilson. It doesn't look like the kit comes with a dial caliper, thats OK because the one that used to come with it was plastic and needed to be replaced anyhow. You can get any decent dial caliper from grizzly for around $20, if you want to treat yourself go with a Starrett or Mitatoyo, there not needed but they are nice to use.
