New to reloading




I've been reading up on reloading and the required equipment for the past few weeks. Between this site and XDTalk.com, I think I have made up my mind.

Now, I do have one quick question.

Since I'm going to be purchasing a Lee Deluxe 4 Hole Turret kit(I'll use it in the non-indexing mode first),

http://leeprecision.com/xcart/Deluxe...Press-Kit.html

I am also purchasing the dies to do .45 ACP, .40 S&W, and .270 Winchester, along with an extra turret or 2 and the safety primer.

I was wondering if there was anything I should order with it besides brass/powder/bullets.

Should I also order a new scale to use besides the one included in the kit?

I would strongly advise you to get the Lee Classic Turret instead of the Lee Deluxe Turret. Not much more $ and a much better press. I don't believe Lee sells the LCT in a kit. I believe Weidners does though: http://www.wideners.com/. You would also need the Lee Pro Auto Disk. Your scale would be primarily used to verify the weight thrown by the Pro Auto Disk, so as long as you can set it accurately and see it come to zero with your powder charge in the pan, it should be good.

OOPS, sorry about that. I thought I was in the correct sub-forum.



Thanks for the recommendations.
