Wow! All your replies are sure appreciated. I guess I'm trying to pinch pennies- which is a little silly considering the cumulative costs so far. Or maybe because of them
I guess with the way I feel about accuracy it makes sense to anticipate a lot more expenditures before I'm done. A fine rifle is worth it.
It's just that my first rifle (a sportomized Swede) came with a Lee Loader, 20# of components and instant, devastating performance. So I guess I feel offended when asked to pay for this stuff!
I am glad to have so many helpful, knowledgeable and friendly members reply. Thanks again!
