L*fty Dick said: I like the look of Lymans T Mag combo kit, P&D has them for $425, this kit is nice because it comes with a case trimmer, which the RCBS ones dont do for what ever reason.
*OB said: Reloading Starting Kit Loading Manual Suggest Hodgen #26 for a start/Speer Good weigh scale RCBS Mod 502/505 either will do. [A MUST] Press. Partner or Rockchucker [Partner is good starter] Dies RCBS Hornaday Lyman Lee my preference RCBS [ Carbide set for Pistols] Case Lube Must for lubing rifle cases before resizing. Not required for most pistols if using carbide dies. Loading block RCBS or ? used to hold cases. Powder funnel Primer Tray or [Flipper] Trim to Length gauge Rifle-Pistol Hammer type bullet puller [You will need] sooner or later Build a solid bench. Nice to Have Digital Calipers [check house of tools] Electronic powder scale & dispenser RCBS $319 + Scales $300-or Lyman Auto Scale $360.

H*ndloader B.C. said: I agree with 240Gord. Get the RCBS starter kit with the Rock Chucker press and live happily ever after. Even when you advance to a progressive, you will still use and love the RCBS set up. My Rock Chucker is 20+ years old and is still the best of the bunch. Carry on!
