Want to help a youth get started handloading?

I ran this on a couple other forums and the response has been pretty good. Drew is a responsible 15 year old who does odd jobs when not doing farm chores. He saved his money and bought a 243 Winchester. Went through hunter safety and will be in the woods this year trying for his first deer. He has taken an interest in handloading and I will mentor him through the learning process.

I asked if anyone had spare components or equipment they cared to donate. Below are the haves and needs. If you care to donate something PM me and I will send my contact info. I will post pics when I get the stuff pieced together.

Have
Bullets, Brass, Dies (on the way), Deburring Tool, Case Length Gage, Trimmer & Lock Stud, Powder Measure, Scale

Need
Primer Pocket Cleaner or Uniformer, Calipers, Priming Tool, Reloading Manual, Dipper Cups

Thanks in advance if you can help.

Is there a way to send him a little cash? Maybe PayPal to you then you write a check? Maybe PayPal directly to him?

I'd be glad to donate $20.00 or so.
