You can cut your costs even more. Here's your list:

Rock Chucker Press........................$ 138
5-0-5 Reloading Scale....................... 79
Shellholder ...................................... 6
Die set............................................ 42
Dial calipers ..................................... 66
Hand Priming Tool............................. 40
"Little Dandy" powder measure ........... 30

Total: $401


How about change these items:
Rock Chucker: Check used---Ebay

5-0-5 Reloading Scale--one is on Ebay right now for $10 with no reserve...I'm sure it will go up, but it's won't be near $79 for it. Also, there are many really good used scales for sale there.

Die Set
The Lee dies are fine, and they run for about $20-$25.
Dial Calipers--Try $25 from a Midway, $29 from Dillon, of $20 from Harbor Feight Salvage (lust make sure they return to 0 every time they close).

You can whittle $100-$200 off your startup costs by doing this, and still have the same quality products.

Good luck!
