    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    Since you are starting reloading and also high power calibers, may I suggest few things.

    1. Get the Lyman manual and read the early chapters 3 times. You need to understand the variables of pressure, velocity, case capacity, powder charge, bullet weight etc. This is complex and exponential.
    2. Get the Hornady headspace and bullet seating comparator. It will help size cases and set bullets accurately and repeatably
    3. Nothing wrong with Lee gear. Ignore the people who rubbish Lee. Lee products used to be very popular with target shooters
