Excellant job of informing us, thank you. I have every single piece of equip. you have written, and then some. I started with the Lee Anniversary, single stage. I never use the scales, use the digital ones, for $15.00, have 3 sets, from Harbor frieght and e-bay. I load .223, 9mm, 45acp, 40, 10mm, 38/357, 308. I like to use/buy Lee loaders, for $25.00 at Cabelas. I can load 30-06 and 7mm, a bullet a minute, more or less. Those are great way to start out with 30caliber loads, 30cal for M1 good example. Hard to believe that 30cal is $22.00 box of 50. Man, that stuff used to go for pennies, I know, sound like an old timer, I am old though, , in age not in life.
