    Wanted: Reloading gear to get my system started

    Have nearly finished setting up my shed at the new place, so now have a bench all set up for reloading etc.

    Up until this point I've used my mates gear which is great but now I want my own stuff so I don't have to rely on him being home etc. for when i want to make some more bombs.

    If you've got excess gear such as a press, scales, etc let me know please...we can talk prices etc etc.

    I have dies, powder, primers, projectiles etc, so don't need that stuff.

    Thanks
    Josh



    And if you want to just give me stuff for free, I'll happily take it off your hands and look after it for you : ;D

    I'm sure someone will say it so I might as well be the first, just get the $200 Lee kit and be done with it.

    How much reloading you planning on doing? If you are going to reload multiple calibers or large volumes I would suggest a Dillon 550 progressive.
    I brought one when I started pistol shooting for 15 years now and at various stages the same press has loaded 9x19, .40S&W, 38Supercomp, .357M, 38 Special, now now I have it set up for .45ACP and .223. My brother visits once a year and spends an hour loading a years worth of 7-08 (about 4 hundy rounds). He has his own tool-head complete with powder measure. Doesn't take long to swap calibers, maybe 5 minutes if you already have a tool head set up and only need to swap primer tubes (not always necessary ) or Powder measure.


    However if you are only intending to load a packet or 5 per year the lee kit is the way to go. You won't part my from my Dillon though
