Reloading equipment



Log in to see fewer ads
What’s the 1 piece of equipment that you think is the most cost worthy or list a couple

Mine are
1 Digital scale, mine is a lab scale that goes up to 30,000 grains, measure in several different standards, $50 at local pawn shop.
2 Powder Measure, a Harrel’s I sure enjoy this one, makes loading easy once you find that sweet load.
3 Press, I broke down and bought a Redding UltraMag, love it, also Redding dies are top notch as well

1. I think my Midway digital scale was a great investment.

2. Probably the Lyman outside neck turner that adapts to their heavier case trimmer. Outside neck turning was big eye opener....

3. Tough, but a chrony really helps you see where you at relative to all the different book data.....

A few things come to mind here:
For quantity pistol ammo, it's hard to beat a Dillon setup; I've got a 550B with a bunch of toolheads and three measures.
For my cast bullets in .30 caliber rifles, the Redding necksizer dies with inserts are great.
A Wilson trimmer I bought 40 years ago is still better than the other two I tried more recently.
I'm also very fond of my digital caliper and digital powder scale.

A few years back I purchased a Pact digital scale & electronic powder dispenser. It took a long time for me to trust it, over my old lyman powder scale. You know, that fear of this new fangled electronic stuff!
It works very well. I hear they are offering an upgrade for these to speed up the dispense time.
A chronograph is certainly a tool that can dispell some of the tales your buddy's tell you about their "special" loads. sk:

Tony,

Good one on the priming tool, I have always had one, so do not appreciate enough the ease they bring to reloading

I have to vote for the Lee auto-prime. They're inexpensive,fast, and give a good feel to seating the primer. They wear out after about 5-10,000 rounds but for $9.95 they work for me.

I can't realy say what has been the most cost-effective tool I've bought; maybe the Forster neck-turning tools; but the one that got me to the finest accuracy is without a doubt the RCBS concentricity gauge. When it comes to accuracy, straight, square, plumb and consistent is a lot of what you're after. You'd be amazed how much runout there can be in a freshly sized case...

A Chrony has been the best thing in taking out all of the guess work. It also helps with my Sierra Infinity program.
