I like the Lyman manual, I suppose because I used it in my class rooms. But Speer, Hornady, Hodgdon, Sierra are all good.

I bought a Hornady , progessive and love it ... I looked at dillon hornady was $150 cheaper ... Rcbs isn't a true progressive , u have to manly index it ...
Hornady all the way , and there powder througher works amazing . Less then 1/10 of a grain variance .
F.K.

Also look into a few loading trays - small plastic ammo boxes- labels to mark your load data - powder funnel . If you ain't figured this out yet THIS can get as bad as BRD. LMFAO Mickey

IB,

That is a fine choice and for one reason being Hornady as with RCBS parts for your loader is readily available at locations like Bass Pro-Cabala's and local shops. That is the biggest mistake some make when buying loading equipment. What I am going to recommend is more money but after years of being tired and worn out regarding measuring powder I splurged and went and bought a Lyman 1200 Powder Unit. God I wished I had done it years ago. So you may also want to check into one. But not being familiar with the time it takes to weigh out exact powder charges for each case it saves me hours and the machine does almost everything. And it is incredibly accurate. It also has a program for multiple calibers so no need to set the unit back up each time for a specific load. Just select the right number on the key pad and it switches to your specific load for that ammunition.
Just a suggestion for you to look at!

LMAO @ "is there anything else i need to get" LMFAO!!!

I am laughing because as you will learn, there ALWAYS seems to SOMETHING else you need!!

I use a lyman and like it well enough, it has loads for all the major calibers, bullet weights, powders.

Keep us up on your progress.
