    OK, I'll bite. One doesn't need to spend lots of money to get started reloading. Using a Lee Hand Press, a set of Lee dies, some cases, bullets, primers and propellant, one can reload fairly economically. Granted it isn't fast, but one can take their time and do quite well though. This pic shows a batch of .223 Rem reloads using the tools. I have taken this stuff to the range before and loaded up a few rounds at a time right then and there to test loads with. I used a powder weighing scale instead of a dipper. But not all gun ranges will let you do it though.

    My little tank. Herters 234 turret next to the rock chucker. Has the primer feed and all. Haven't got it mounted yet but working on it. Need to do some major rearranging. Might have to add some more bench. Excuse the mess as I've been going trough some stuff trying to thin down a bit.

    I manage to get everything needed to load rounds on this tiny bench in my basement. Built it for the cold months and I much prefer the 8' bench in the garage.
