Good set up basically, but you would need to add scale check weights to calibrate that digital scale.

A case trimmer is needed if you are loading bottleneck rifle rounds. The little trimmers sold be LEE will tide you over quite well until you can afford something nicer.

It sounds like Hornaday all the way. A number of years ago I purchased a Hornaday powder measure, I believe it was the "Pro". Although I used it many years , I don't feel it was as smooth operating as my present RCBS.
When I purchased it I found there was a ledge between the plastic reservoir and metal body. Whenever I wished to change powders or wanted to stop reloading there was powder on that ledge. A long handled stiff art brush took care of it. Finally, I took a Demidrill and ground it off. Have fun and good luck.

Thanks for the heads up. I just ordered the abcs of reloading. Is there any manuals anyone thinks I should get? Such as reloading for handgunners or anything like that. I will be reloading for handguns and rifles. Carry ammo, hunting ammo, plinking, and even just some cheep stuff to stock up on for shtf.
