Congrats, I love my turrent press.:D I might have missed it but a caliper would be a must have tool IMO.

Hum I do not see a scale included with this order nor a case gauge.

Good quality, electronic readout, 6" digital calipers are on sale this month at Harbor Freight for ~$12. These are In/MM reading, inside, outside, depth reading. They come with a case and spare battery.

You can order on-line.

I don't see a reloading manual. The ABC's is a good book but doesn't have powder data. You will want to clean your brass before you size it. The easiest way is a tumbler. I bought the Cabela's tumbler and am very happy with it. It's this one.
You can pick one up for $45. I use crushed walnut from the pet store for media. I add a cap full of Nu Finish car polish and a used dryer sheet or paper towel cut into ten pieces. The car polish will help clean faster, keep the dust down and make them shiny. The dryer sheet will help keep the media clean. There are other ways to clean the brass so you don't have to buy a tumbler but to me the other ways are too time consuming. Load safe and have fun.

Are you sure it's not torrent?:confused::D

The single stage is a good idea. Especially if it comes with the lee loading manual.

Look into ebay for the RCBS 505. I just bought one recently like new in the box for $45. I know midway has them for about $80 after s+h.

Thats saving almost %50. Yes you have to deal with fleabay, but its alot safer for buyers now.

Oh, and check out the Redding #2 scale, with 505 gr capacity (same as the rcbs). Its the almost the same design with great reviews too.
