    I am trying to get into reloading for my 7mm-08 and soon to be .223 rem. The only problem is that I don't know where to start off.:( I know that I need powder, primers, bullets, cases, .etc, but what about the equipment itself? I would like something under $100 if possible.:)

    The reloading section would be better suited for this question. However, I just started reloading and got the Lee kit for $80. I then got Lee dies for $25. Plus little odds and ends like $25. Plus Bullets and powder and primers (100 Small rifle, BL-C(2) 1lb and 50 grain soft point (.223) for $35. Calipers for $20. So I got started for $185ish. You can do it for under 100 with a lee classic loader (hammer and dies), but you will not to load a whole lot of rounds with that. I can load 50 an hour easily with my kit. Next is a tumbler!

    List -

    Press
    Dies
    Way to trim cases
    Calipers
    Case Lube
    Bullets
    Cases
    Primers
    Powder
    A way to clean cases (I use a liquid cleaner for now)
    Case mouth chamfer tool (The Lee kit includes the chamfer tool)

    I have a thread for you and a link that was provided to me, which was really helpful.

    If you get one of those you'll need a tumbler, scale, calipers.
