OK, I have several rifles that are pretty much killing my budget and ultimately necesitating that I get into reloading in order to shoot as much as I would like to.
Here are rounds that are giving me fits:
325WSM ($65 a box!!!)
270 WSM (cheaper but still stupid expensive)
10mm (not too big a deal w/ a 40s&w barrel for plinking)
I will probably add a 6.8SPC in the fairly near future which will need to be fed and I am concidering a dyno thumper like the 416 Ruger as well.
I keep thinking about just buying a master reloading kit from RCBS is that the way to go to get started? Are some companies better at certain things than others? What is hard to get vs what can I run down to S/W or Chimo's and pick up w/ no issue? Should I order dies now, are they hard to find?
I havn't told him yet but I am going to bug Wholden to show me the ropes and get me started, I just figure I should start putting the hard to find stuff on order now! Given the cartriges above what primers and powder would be good to have on hand?
You get the idea, basically I want to have everything in order so that I can start working up test loads when I get back
