    The Sierra manual is a great one to have too. If you are going to use the measure be sure to get a spherical powder, not stick. If using a stick powder you should use a scale. You are going to need a scale anyway to set up your powder measure properly.

    What 312 said. A bullet puller is a must when starting out.

    Dang it I'm still using one after 40+ years!

    When it comes to calipers I like the old analog dial type. The visual help ya see which way to go and how much to get there. I guess if you think in numbers the digital would be fine. For example I rather see a woman's figure, then the measurements are obvious!;)
