Check locally for supplies

I got all this for $190 which is as best as I can tell a fair price especially considering this market. 800 bullets of .357 and 9mm plus 200 new .357 brass! Found this on Craigslist. Now all I need is a re loader! Lol!

Congrats on your purchase. Read all the great guidance provided to new reloaders above (if you are new to reloading). The difficult part maybe finding small pistol primers.

Another important component is reloading manuals for those without them.

Enjoy~

Trying to figure out whether to piece together a rig carefully or get a kit. I understand that some kit components will be upgraded. I actually ordered the Lee Classic Turret kit that was in stock, then got an email that that was a mistake. Who knows how long it will be now. There are a couple of local sellers that I may just to put one together slowly.

Stopped at the largest of my local shops this morning, they had a good supply of all rifle and large pistol primers along with plenty of powder. Small pistol was limited to Wolf and Remington but I could have picked up 5000 of either if I had wanted. Lots of powder and brass on the shelf also. Everything was 25% to 30% higher than what I buy in bulk on the net but that is normal for that place even before the panic.

Go back and check your Craig's List - LOTS of reloading equipment there, as well as EBAY

Found small pistol primers at a local place
yesterday, CCI. Guy said he might have some
Federals in back. He came back with a brick
saying they had just come in. Wanted more
but left some for others.

$34 / 1000

All the Best,
D. White

Lee classic turret is a great press to start on. Check out www.kempfgunshop.com for the kit. I think kempf has the best deal because their kit comes with a set of dies and no scale. Then you can start with a decent scale and avoid the Lee scale.
