    I mean, I seat then crimp in a separate step, with the same die. I confuse myself and ruin my ammo sometimes if I don't use 2 steps.

    Gotta include tax though. In Texas, it's 8.25%, so $438.98(1.0825)~$475.20.

    Plus shipping, $475.20+$18.99=$494.19.

    I think @Mark_Mark ’s point is, unless you buy used from a private party, you’ll pay the sales tax no matter what, so the RCBS package with free shipping and primers for just HazMat deal is a good buy. I’m not so sure how good a deal it is but I get what he’s saying.

    I completely see what he's saying, gooseberry, I personally find it a bit misleading when the taxes aren't included. I'm not calling him out, I appreciate what he did, it's a personal thing.

    When I bought my first car, he said $6k flat. Then he told me I need to pay another $x (can't recall the amount) for taxes and paperwork. Because I only pulled out $6k, I couldn't take my car that day. I felt genuinely mislead, but that's just a personal thing.

    Besides, if someone in Texas or Seattle wants to buy this kit, now they know exactly how much they have to pay.

    Well folks, you all helped me fantastically. I went to the wall, and shot off 12 rounds of it. I'll be honest, i just wanted to see if they worked. And they did. Sadly, i didn't take a paper target, but i did take a big ass steel plate, and I heard it ding for all 12 at about 30 yards. What a blast!

    Well, I'm all set up it seems. Thank you all, for every little bit of input.

    You've only just begun, but you're well on your way. May you enjoy every fun, frustrating, exhilarating, aggravating, exciting moment of it.

    No, I'm donating it to fund my whole gun addiction.

    Did you really think a university student could afford to spend random amounts of cash on guns as often as i do? Hell naw!

    Do what you do bud, but I got thought college bartending and waiting tables. You could probably pick up a trade in construction, just go to a site and tell them you want to work.

    No offense but, having read your posts, I think you should go back to the university you got your degree from and ask for a refund. Don’t need a sheepskin to be a trophy husband.
