Look over my list

Well after procastinating for the last several weeks I believe I've got my list made out. Let me know if I'm missing something or have a wrong item.

Dillon 550
9mm conversion kit
Dillon 3 die carbide set
Dillon decapping pins for pistiol only
Strongmount
Bullet tray
Aluminum roller handle
4 extra small primer tubes
spare parts kit
tumbler---grafs's (berry) or Lyman 2500
roatry media seperator
media pan sifter
primer flip tray
Hornady small/large pocket reamer kit
Oneshot
Lyman 49th reloading book - already have ABC's
either the kinectic puller or go ahead and get the Hornady collet style puller, I have a RCBS single stage already.
I already have a scale that will do for now
caliper

Going with the 550 due to realistic volume and needs. Thought about not getting the strongmount but due to my bench being 36" and I've messed with a 550 on a strongmount at the same bench height and I liked the height. Also thought about not getting the bullet tray and cartridge case bin bracket might as well if I'm getting the strongmount. I could just make a platform but I like how the catridge/finished ammo bins are located. Suggestions or ideas throw them at me.

A decent caliper is needed to measure your rounds.

Something like this:

And don't forget media to put in the tumbler.
You don't need the expensive stuff.
Many of us use this:

It's small enough to not plug flash holes if you decide to deprime before you tumble.

I will have to get media and I also forgot that I have some calipers already. What about the kinetic puller versus the hornady. Must be pretty much it, to start out with anyways.

Got a question on the media, is the 14/20 larger or smaller than the 20/40?

I'd recommend getting the toolholder with the tools. I have a Dillon 650 and have the toolholder and wrenches. Its really handy to have all of the sizes of the allen wrenches you need all in one place.

Get a decent digi scale to double check loads, Also grab some case gauges for whatever calibers you plan on on reloading.

I do need to add a case gage and for the tools I'm gonna use an extra set of allen wrenches plus a socket and driver.
