I know that it's been asked about which equipment to buy, but I want to ask the question in a little different way. I'm sure that everyone realizes that manufacures make things differently but just because you make a certain product that is the best doesn't mean that you make the best of everything. I.E. per consumer reports, I bought 2 different washer and dryer manufactures. I use to reload many years ago and lost everything in a fire and never replaced it, well the time had come and I need your help. I don't really want a progressive machine but I was really leaning towards a turret. Pros and cons? I'm a firm believer in buying once. So please help me put together the best set of reloading equipment. What make and model is the best of ........ It would be real helpful if you would share your reasonings and logic why. I.E. this model has this little gizmo or gadget and the other doesn't, this one is more accurate or reliable. Power case trimmer vs manual....You get the idea. What little tool should you have that most people don't. Any and all input would be greatly appreciated!! If you have particular knowledge about just one particular thingm please share that. If somebody says something and you disagree please speak up and share your reasonings.
Remember Make and Model
Calipers (manual or electronic?)
Case trimmer (manual or elec.)
Hand primmer ( should you use one?)
Scale (manual or electronic?) (combo unit?)
Press (Turret or single stage?)
Whats the best supplier (I'm using a Midway catalog)
If we get a bunch of different answers maybe I'll put together a bunch of polls on each item and everyone can vote. Maybe we can put together the ultimate setup and post it as a sticky.
