    Have fun reloading. From your list, my first pick would be calipers, hands down. I never felt like I needed a sonic case cleaner, but I did go for an electronic scale several years ago. I first bought a cheap one and wasn't real happy with it and then got a Dillon and love it--simple, accurate, and fast.

    Daughter bought me a Mitutoyo digimatic for fathers day a year back; man I luv that caliper; worth every penny.

    I prefer beam scales, don't even use the digital scale anymore.

    Really like those Frankford loading blocks (blue ones) Have about 20 of them now, buy a few everytime I see them on sale.

    One shot, wax, ect

    That's a great start. Your wife is a keeper and I hope you teach her to shoot too. Are you going to let her place her make-up mirror above the bench and her jewelry box on it too? :D

    Thats where Im lucky my wife loves to shoot, was going to get her a pistol for home defense and she wanted nothing to do with it, Her pick was a pump shotgun,:) and as long as she doesnt mind a little gun powder in her blush then I will hang her mirror where ever she tells me to. We all know you have to keep momma happy.

    As far as cleaners go, that's going to have to be up to you. Vibratory cleaners don't get the primer pockets or insides as clean as a sonic but with a sonic you have the wait time for drying.

    You'll never have to trim pistol brass so I would say go with Lee case trimmer for the 30-06 cases.

    Ditch the Lee scale and go with a RCBS, Redding, Hornady or Lyman beam scale.

    You can never have to many loading manuals. Especially on for the powder you're using and one for the bullet company.

    Imperial sizing wax will make resizing your rifle brass so much easier.

    Calipers, I picked my digitals up at Northern Tool.

    You may want to look into a good digital scale in the future as well.

    A kinetic bullet puller, cuz you will need it sooner or later.
