    Doubt you'll find one cheaper than that, cheapest place I found when I got mine was walmart actually and it was still $250ish.

    Eh their selection is OK, I've bought powder and primers there once to save myself a drive but their prices aren't that great. I did get a good deal on a lyman tumbler though (I found it quite odd that they had it) and I also bought a stand for my powder thrower (which I reccomend). They really only carry Nosler Ballistic Tips, some Sierra bullets, and I think some Speers along with Winchester brass in common calibers (.223, 30-06, .45ACP), RCBS equipment and dies, CCI primers, and various powders (they seem to differ every time I go there, I'd like to know how they decide which ones to order).

    No thanks :) I don't think I trust a powder measure right away and it seems like a waste of a turret if you're not going to charge with it.

    all you have to do is measure a few at the beginning and then randomly measure some if you want

    If you're going to for bulk they're fine but if you want actual precision no way should you trust it.

    What all do you need to start reloading? I've been interested in it for awhile but know nothing. :hs:

    i'm not being a smartass. reloading is serious business, and attention to detail when reloading is VERY important. messing up can lead to destroyed weapons or worse. before you buy anything, read at least 1 or 2 reloading books. "The ABC's of Reloading", ..etc. also, check out accuratereloading.com and the reloading section of most gun forums, there are stories of ppl who failed to recognize danger signs and wound up w/destroyed guns and/or injuries. we're trying to help you, not make fun of you. i messed up on a few rounds(some had too much powder, some others had the bullet seated too far back), but found my mistakes during my final check. after i'm finished with a batch, i check overall length, strength of crimp and weight of each round. i also make sure each round chambers smoothly into my gun(i currently only load for my 30.06). had i not done that final check, it's possible i may not be here today.

    Mine is pretty damn accurate...but if you want to measure out powder for each round knock yourself out.

    What kind of thrower do you use? Last time I checked a bunch of thrown charges from my RCBS thrower they'd often vary by a grain or more. If I was going for volume I wouldn't care but since I'm not I don't mind weighing them out.

    I'm considering reloading, but I would need to reload a variety of calibers, .40, .45, .380, .308, and 12GA.

    What kind of setup am I going to need for that? Pistol, rifle, shotgun are going to require different charges, priming, and loads, correct? Is there a single setup that might interchange all of those?

    You can use essentially the same stuff for pistol and rifle but for shotgun you need a separate press.

    IE7 screwed me all up though... this is the first order I've made since upgrading and they moved the little https/encrypted padlock icon from where it used to be.:noes:
