Hello everyone. This may have been asked and answered many times already but I can't seem to find it with a search.
I'm looking into getting a basic reloading set up as a christmas gift for my Dad. I already have a good idea on what book and press I want to get but I have no idea what else is needed or even what any of this stuff is used for.
For instance: what are the dies for? I see many different types and calibers but I want to know how they work so I know what to look for.
Will a .308 shell holder with a 7mm die work to reload 7mm08?
I know it's a gift but I'm the type of guy that wants to know the ins and outs before I buy. You never know when I may have to borrow it for my own reloads.
