New to reloading, need some help
Hey all I'm new to the forum and was thinking about reloading, and could use some advice. I'm on a budget so I can't afford the best. I was wondering how would this setup work, and do I have everything I need?

Lycan5100, if your on a tight budget, get the Lee anniversay kit. Midway has it listed for $89.99, but you can get it at Sportsman Wharehouse (or most other large sporting stores) for around $69.99. Then the only thing you need are a set of dies and a caliper.
'Course you will need brass, bullets, powder and primers. If you've been saving your fired brass, then that's one less thing to buy.
This is probably the cheapest way to get into reloading, especially if you find out you don't like it (can't imagine why, but some do!).

Before you buy presses and the rest of the gear, pick up a couple of loading manuals and read then cover to cover. Then you'll have a much better idea of what your basic needs are for the equipment. Plus to load safely you'll need the manuals anyway so it isn't money that's wasted.

Do you want cheap?
I would suggest the Lee Classic Loader. This is the most hands on tool, but will produce very good, accurate ammo. Cabela's has it for $13.99. If you enjoy the process, step up into the Lee Anniversary Kit. Get a few good manuals.
