Here's some opinion-gitters for you:
1. Calipers...dial v. digital? Brand? Is the Franklin Arsenal digital caliper any good? It's cheap ...and on sale at Midway.
2. People use all kinds of terms when it comes to preparing primer pockets, i.e. "clean", "ream", "uniform" etc etc. In the catalogs, I see large and small reamers, and recall something about deburring (am I forgetting?) the flash hole. For my .30-06 ...what primer pocket tools do I need (or is a good idea to have) and for what purpose are they? Oh yeah ...I've got a couple hundred rounds of once-fired Federal (mostly) brass that I'll be using.
3. Murphy mentioned something about 'truing up' the neck? If you're reading this Murphy, would you mind educating me a bit and expanding on this topic?
I'm sort of at the stage where I'm collecting up the last tidbits to get going and have just about wrapped it up. I have at least 1 or 2 weekends of cleaning to do in the garage so I can get to the reloading bench that I built last summer (garage is now 'cluttered' from a summer's worth of boat building and house projects.) While I wait upon your answers, I'll go get busy reading the Hornaday manual that everyone seems to recommend...
