    WTB: First time reloading gear

    Hi guys,

    Looking at getting into reloading, so i'm after some reloading gear if any has anything for sale for my 7mm Rem Mag. Already have die set.
    Been looking at that Lee Kit that's advertised but if anyone is upgrading their set and needs to get rid of theirs i'd be interested.

    Thanks,

    Buy decent stuff , you will get real sick of cheap flimsy shit real quick and its gotta last a lifetime . I bought ( about 20 years ago ) a RCBS rock chuck reloading kit , a hand primer and a case master dial gauge thing , and have never looked back . I have added quite a few bits over the years (outside neck turning and trimming tool ), . DONT get an aluminium press , make double sure its a cast iron job . One of my mates has just bought a Lee ally turret/ progressive press and it looks and feels like a piece of shit , 1/3 the price of the Dillon , but he will have a Dillon within 6 months ..... betcha !
    If you are new to reloading I would get some books and have a real good read , the idea being that when you sit down to reload your 1st cases you will feel your on familiar ground. I have the speer reloading manual , Hodgdon manual , Nick Harveys reloading book and " metallic cartridge reloading" , "A B C's of reloading", and some good articles out of old Gun Digest books . My Mrs found a shit load of reloading books at various 2nd hand book stores .... few bucks each ........

    Nothing wrong with Lee presses, in fact My most accurate load (0.9 inch at 100 meters) for my .270 was made using a lee breechlock O-frame press and Lee Dies.not everyone can afford to drop close to a grand on expensive gear while starting out and that is where lee gear comes into play good enough to get you up and running till you can afford better gear. I would happily buy a lee o-frame press any day

    I've got a lee press that's over 30yrs old and still going strong.

    Cheers

    Agree with the above re lee gear. I use a lee press, trimmer, chamfer, beams scales and then redding dies. Would have loaded over 1000 rounds with the press and it was second hand when I bought it - no issues at all.
