Hi there. After many hours of you tube videos, and web surfing I thought I'd come somewhere comfortable, and familiar for some advice. The rifle: savage hog hunter. 308 The reason: to keep on hand for cabin protection (bears, wolves), plain old fun target shooting, and possible future hunting. I have no desire to shoot competitive. I shoot one or two times a month to maintain profeciency (50 rounds or so each outing) and other than sighting in I don't use a benchrest. In terms of accuracy if I can hit a paper plate/gong out to 200 yards I'm happy. So what I'm looking for is advice on what do I really need? I have no problem paying top dollar for stuff (I truly believe buy once cry once) but I'd rather not pay for a benefit I will not realize. I will pay for convenience or for future proofedness. I've ruled out an annealer, and neck turning. For dies I'm looking at a Lee pacesetter set, although a bushing style resizer is not out of the question. The press is a bit more confusing. I had my eyes on the Lee anniversary set, but once at cabelas it seemed "sloppy" compared to the rockchuker. I held off on the press and am kinda intrigued by the co ax press. I like the priming system, and the quick die changes. I can see that being nice to have if I fall deep down the reloading bunny hole . I plan to use both mechanical scales and electronic. Powder throwing will be either a throw, or a scoop system, slightly under charging with a trickle finish. (Most videos I watched the powder throws were too inconsistent ). I am not I repeat not beyond the rcbs charge master electronic do hickey, and please if need be I can be talked into it. But if I can save 500 that's fine too. Bottom line this stuff will last a lifetime. I just want decent ammo and a new hobby for my soon to be workbench man cave area. I want quality equipment but don't want to buy something that will be of no benefit for what I will be doing. What say ye? Cheap dies/bushing dies? What press? Hand charge or auto electric charge the powder? What did you buy? Why? What would you do differently? Is there something I didn't mention that would be of consequence to my purchase? Cabelas has an rcbs kit for 1100. Just add dies and a shell holder and were good to go. I really like the co ax press, but I plan on using shims to get a repeatable shoulder bump. This doesn't seem possible on the co ax. Thank you all in advance.
