I've been reading the forum for a while and have really appreciated the depth of knowledge and experience in reloading here. I've thought of reloading for a while and a couple of years ago I retired and now feel I've got the time to pursue reloading. Before, I didn't shoot enough to warrant reloading, but with the current climate in Washington, it now seems like a required skill.
Anyway, I just saw this ad in my local area.
Lee Load-Master progressive press http://www.leeprecision.com/html/catalog/ldmas.html
(setup for .38special, never used)
Lee carbide dies for .38special (handles .357magnum also), .40S&W (2 sets, can be used for 10mm also), and 9mm
Lee shellplate #1S for .38special/.357magnum
Lee small case slider to feed .40S&W cases
Lee primer pocket cleaner
Lee modern reloading 2nd edition book
1000 Winchester Small Pistol Primers
700 Remington Small Pistol Primers
1lb of Ramshot Silhouette powder
I can get it all for about $400. Is that a pretty good set up for a beginner? He says it's all pretty new. He decided he didn't have the time and needed the money.
I'm always a little leary by nature, but at the same time, I don't want to miss a good deal if this is one. I would appreciate any input, and thanks for all the great posts on reloading.
