Reloading Guide Part 2 - Equipment You'll Need
Posted on March 08 2018
Welcome to the second part of our reloading blog. This time we’re going to go trough some of the equipment that you’ll need.
To start you’ll need reloading press and a set of Lee Dies are all you need to start reloading. Lee Dies are complete with powder measure, shell holder and complete instructions, including load data that tells you how much and what type of powder to use. Dies and presses last a lifetime, so buying on what your budget allows makes the most sense. You will never regret buying a value priced press---as no matter how sophisticated a press you own---you always have need for a simple press for odds and ends jobs. If you mount your press with the Lee Bench Plate, your second press is always at the ready. If you don't have a workbench, consider the Lee Reloading Stand, built for the ultimate in rigidity and convenience.
If you have no loading equipment and are just getting started, you must consider that these basic steps need to be taken.
1. Resize and de-prime the spent case
2. Prime the spent case
3. Charge the case
4. Seat and crimp (if desired) a new bullet.
