Checklist

Hi, getting ready to start loading .223/5.56 here and wanted to get a little input on my purchases for it. Here is what I know I will need: Press,powder measure, case trimmer,scales, something to swage primer crimps, die set, caliper,case lube, brass tumbler, bullets,a few different loading books, primers, brass and powder. I'm trying to make a shopping list because I have to travel a loong way to my dealer. If I have left anything out or anyone has any other recommendations please let me know. Thanks!

What would be best to buy to be able to prime the cases with the Hornady AP progressive press?

I've never used the hornady AP progressive press, but being a progressive press it probably has a priming set up on it.

So far the list looks complete, less loading blocks. Well, if your press is a progressive, zip lock bags do as well.

Enjoy,
