What is an Ammunition Reloading Kit?


A reloading kit contains everything you need (except components such as powder, bullets, primers and specific dies) to reload spent ammunition casings. Many manufacturer kits claim that they are complete kits requiring no additional purchases, but take care and read the customer reviews associated with a particular kit. Reviewers will often tell you what is missing from the kit as well as pointing out the good and bad aspects of it.

Should I buy a New or Used Reloading Kit?

If you can save money, there is not reason not to buy a used one. They often have additional components and supplies that the previous loader purchased. You essentially get the kit plus the experience factor of the previous owner. As far as wear and tear goes, the press as well as many of the dyes and components do not degrade significantly. Ask if you can see it in operation before you purchase (if possible).
