    Reloading Equipment

    OK, what do I need to get me up and running with reloading?

    The jargon and theory out there needs to be cracked first, to this end I have ordered "Modern Reloading, Second Edition" by Richard Lee.

    I know this wont give me everything I need but will point me in the right direction.

    Then there is the kit, dies, presses, scales, cleaners, etc etc.

    What is the minimum items of kit I need to start me reloading???

    (For info it is 243 that I am looking at)

    A decent manual or half a dozen! Rockchucker press will last a lifetime, good set of scales, 505 are good, electronics ok but do go out of calibration easily. A Lee handpress will get you started. Lee or RCBS Dies, don't bother with competition dies. Primers, cases and powder and bullets of course! I would not personally bother with a tumbler you can clean the cases by hand and give them a good inspection. Oh and case lube, I have used vasoline in the past (but thats a different story!)
    Be slow, check everything twice, no distractions and get as much knowledge as you can.
    And Safety Glasses.
    Good luck

    Sussex Lad is a shooting partner of old so I am sure he will help, in fact he has already offered a bits and bobs.

    So the Lee Kit is this @ 99:

    Dies @ 29.99:

    Case length trimmer @ 4.75:

    Plus scales, eye protection and the primers, powder and bullets.

    Does not sound too bad, just need to sort a bench at which to mount things.
