    Redding .308 win Full Length Die Set (and a WTD for other reloading bits)

    Had these gifted to me by @Wingman to try and encourage me to get into reloading, I have since changed cals to .223 and now have some .223 dies so I have no need for these.

    I would like to swap them for other reloading gear to help me get started and I will be looking to buy the below gear.

    So far I have:
    • Electronic scales
    • Projectiles
    • A pound of 2208
    • Cases
    • Primers
    • .223 dies

    Im looking for anything else that will be helpful to start me out like
    • Press
    • Primer puller
    • Case tumbler (home made adds to cool factor)
    • Case tumbler media
    • Powder dispenser
    • Anything else I might need? I'm a total reloading novice

    You wouldn't want to sell the 308 dies would you?

    Probably better off putting the money you'd spend on the case tumbler towards the actual reloading hear.

    Can always use vinegar, baking soda and a bit of dishwasher liquid. Soak for ten minutes then dry in the oven at a low temp.

    Primer puller? The resizing due will do that, or if you really want, you could get a decapping due.

    You might want to get a case length trimmer. Lee ones work fine and should be no more than $15 for the whole shebang in 223.

    If washing cases, don't mix vinegar and sodium bicarbonate as suggested above, they will react and neutralise each other! Vinegar is fine on its own, but if you want to remove the smell after you could use a sodium bicarb rinse after.
    I'd just recommend some citric acid (from local Indian shop or trademe) and some washing up liquid.
    Alternatively, just a light rub down of the outside of the case with wire wool as I was first taught
