ClevelandRocks, you also forgot to mention that there is not one kit on the market that includes everything needed to start reloading, especially when we're talking rifle brass. He will also need a measuring tool such as calipers to measure case length and also a case trimmer (very important). Since we are talking 5.56, the primers are crimped (LC, WCC, etc), therefore a swage tool becomes very helpful since the crimp needs to be removed before another primer can be seated. Rifle brass must be lubed prior to resizing, more cost, not to mention a good tumbler and media. I would suggest you buy a book first to see all thats involved. I would reccomend that to anyone getting started. Generally, that is where most of us start.
