Just got the notification of a won auction on Ebay for a Lee Anniversary Complete Loading Kit. Price was right ($66). I don't currently load, but it's something I've been contemplating for some time. And with the current ammo market, I figure for $66 plus some dies and componenets, this would be a cheap (that's important right now) introduction to see if this is something I actually want to persue. I love the old Milsurps, but even the surplus ammo is seemingly drying up. The one thing that has always prevented me from buying a K31 is the high cost of feeding it. Loading my own should take a bite out of such costs. right now my main interest in loading would be for 8mm, 30 cal (Garand), 9x19mm, 9x18mm, and I would like to possibly make something of a decent load in 54R for my Mosins to see if they could improve on their groupings. Looking forward to getting started after doing my reading and studies on it. I s there a particular loading manual anyone here with experience would suggest, as well as any instructional DVD's?
