    Beginner Reloader wanting to reload .243 initially

    After seeing Gimps vid on how to reload I want to get to the range more and create an accurate 400 yd .243 bunny buster load. So I guess I will be after some gear and some advice!
    If anyone else has some reloading gear for sale or has been down this path before. I would appreciate the heads up

    Thats a slipery path your heading down Tone, both reloading and longer range.:secret laugh: If we had a crystal ball and could see where you will end up then it would be easy to recomend gear.One of the cheaper options is the Lee kit.I know some will say its rubbish but for a start on a budget its fine, dies are the same really, if your on a budget and buying standard dies then lee are a good value option.For .243 vs rabbits Id give the hornady 87gr Vmax a try,If iv got any left I can spot you a few to try if you like, or some of Byrn's"Targex" bulltets, some2206h , AR2208 or 2209 and a Large rifle primer. Then theres the add ons youl need/ want,good reloading manual, calipers,oal setups,chrony, etc..Its a steep learning curve from the start, spending time with someone with genuine experience that can show you the ropes will save you plenty of time,money and frustration.
