    Hello all.* I have been tossing around the idea of reloading my own ammo since I bought my ar15 5 years ago. Recently I bought a xd40 and have decided to make the leap and buy everything needed to reload. I found a Lee Turret press set up for $500 with this included:
    - Lee 4 turret press
    - Extra turret
    - Large & small safety prime system
    - Auto powder through system (double disk measure, universal rifle expander die, powder hopper)
    - Powder scale
    - Case trimmer, chamfering tool, deswaging tool, flash hole tool
    - Case gauge (.223, .45)
    - Deluxe Lee die sets (.223, .45)
    - Universal decapping die
    - Lyman case tumbler
    - RCBS media seperator
    - Cleaning media
    - 500 small rifle primers
    - 500 large pistol primers
    - 1x 8lb jug of surplus military powder
    - 1x 1lb Accurate rifle powder
    - 1x 1lb Hodgdon's Tite Group powder
    - +/- 500 rd .45 brass
    - +/- 100 rd .223 brass
    - .223 reloading manual
    Does sound like a good deal or should I keep looking around? Thanks in advance to all.

    Depending on the scale and the case trimmer that could be 700-800 worth of stuff.

    A little high IMO, prices that I estimated are what I've seen at recent gun shows in Dayton, Ohio.
