Press, case prep tools, brass, powder, primers, bullets, dies .....etc. I recommend buying a book on reloading and starting there.

check out the reloading section of the wiki. Its got a pretty good list of equipment.

Like slippy says though, you need to do a bit of reading first. There are any number of books out there to get you started, just don't drink any brand cool aid when you do (I'm thinking specifically of Richard Lee's "Modern Reloading" which tells you to buy a lee product in every paragraph)

I'll sell you my copy of "The ABC's of Reloading" Cheap. It's practically new, think I paid $25 for it.

Everything you need to know is already in the reloading forum or the wiki. You just need to spend a little time sorting through it.


Hey, nobody said "Use the search function!!!" yet....

Thanks for the tips, and PMs.
I sold the NIB Lee for twice what I paid and picked up a RCBS Rock Chucker Supreme kit Saturday.
We're getting to know each other now.
