If your anywhere near me, your welcome to come and ask all the questions you want
As mentioned, Recobs, Midwestern, and a good mentor will help a lot.
Required items IMHO.
1. Single stage press, hard to beat a RCBS Rock Chucker
2. Quality scale. I have a single beam Redding that works well. I have a bottom line Lee scale which is marginal and I don't use it.
3. Powder Trickler, manual one is fine
4. Vernier caliper (Do not skip this one)
5. Case triming tool. You need this for any amount of reloading of Rifle cartridges.
6. Powder Measure, to dump charges close to what is needed and the trickler to get the exact charge in the pan. It will make your operation go quicker. Its more of nice to have, but you will go here any way so do it sooner than later and save yourself the headache.
7. If you don't get carbide die's you will need a way to lube and clean cases. carbide is great for pistol cases and high volume but not really needed for low volume rifle.
8. Hand tools for cleaning primer pockets and cleaning up case mouths after triming.
Hornady and RCBS make some nice kits. Lee does have some very good equipment for the price.
Get several books read and read some more. Don't take loads off the internet, and don't look through your books trying to find the hottest listed safe load. Its a fun hobby not scary, and just requires attention to detail. Do it when you won't be distracted.
I have a Hornady turret. Have RCBS and Hornady dies. I bought the package deal a few years ago and have kept adding. I have the hornady and nosler books but will be adding barnes to the list as what I have read most western hunters use their bullets out there.
A good amount of the accessories in a sales catalog are elective. Yes, as you go on you will want to add a few here and there.
The Sierra manual, and others, spells out the common steps of reloading very well.
Start with an easy cartridge, 38 SPCL is one.
