Another "I need help setting up for reloading thread"
So, I want to start re-loading. I have taken a reloading class to understand the process, and have been saving brass for years, so I have a bit of it.
Ideally I would like to set up for 9mm, .45 and .38 Special for pistols, and 5.56 and .308 on rifles.
I am going to start with a single stage press. It seems to me that everyone should have a good single stage press. So, which single stage do the more experienced reloaders prefer? I see that some are aluminum, and some are cast iron. I would think the cast iron are more durable, although heavier. I am leaning towards RCBS, but am open to suggestions.
Aside from that, I know I will need a powder measure, scale, case trimmer, and priming tool. I am probably just going to buy a kit if possible. As well as manuals.
I realize I will need large and small rifle and pistol primers in order to fill my caliber wants.
If I wanted to get a "one size fits all" pistol powder for creating range ammo, any suggestions? How about W231?
What about for rifle powder?
Thanks everyone for the input!
