    @mattstr got a set of Hornady balance beam scales and a Hornady powder dispenser you can have to help you on your way. Just pay postage ($15 max).

    NB. Powder dispenser does not have a stand/bracket for shelf mounting.

    There you go @mattstr , another offer that you shouldn't turn down! Well done Pauli. And a stand for the powder thrower is very easy to make up.

    Absolutely stoked with the support I’ve been offered. It’s really got me even more excited to open the door to reloading. Can’t wait to bring a different aspect to my hunting. @Pauli that’s an awesome offer I will definitely pm regarding that what a legend.

    I'm just getting started, found Nathan Foster's book on reloading a good summary.
    Trying to learn from you tube was a time consuming rabbit warren that left me more confused than before I started.
    Other than that just been selective, subscribed to this forum and make notes when good tips come up.
    I bought the Lee kit and added some extras.

    the early nosler manuals are gold because of the in depth how n why section...... load data is pretty much moot point these days,I wont make a load without checking from 3 different places,the internet is good for this, manufacturers of powder all have charts on line for free.

    all you need to set up the powder thrower is a small wooden box with hole in one side so the nozzle can poke down through it and support unit,your tray of shells will fit underneath with powder funnel.... if you can work it out will post photo of one set up....
    VERY generous offer there...the balance beam scales will last a lifetime and you can always KNOW they are right.
    actually looking at it again,a fire extinguisher bracket would be just about perfect...

    I'm just starting out too. I was incredibly fortunate to pick up a good amount of gear from a generous member on here (just waiting for it to get across the Strait) and I found this wonderfully written, and incredibly informative series of posts by Forum VIP, GrandpaMac:
