Bought reloading equipment

#1

Post by bblhd672 » Sun Feb 10, 2019 10:06 pm

Well, in the course of a week I’ve progressed from never reloaded to hand loaded a few rounds on neighbor’s equipment to buying my own equipment. Found a guy selling all his reloading stuff on Craigslist, checked it out and bought/picked up yesterday. Paid $400 for equipment with MSRP of $975 and “best web price” I could find of $750 plus shipping and tax. Most of the stuff has never been opened or used.

Be on the look out for a case tumbler you will need to clean the used cases.

Congrats. Reloading is fun, satisfying, and allows you to shoot more. :fire Just remember the key is ATTENTION TO DETAIL and start off loads near the bottom and work up.

Yes, two included, a Lee Safety Powder manual scale and a MTM Case Gard digital scale.

The only things I have had to buy is a .308 die set and a caliper.
