A shell holder for your caliber shell used for the actual press and for the primer tool. 2. A die set for your caliber shell. 3. A means in which to clean your shells (i.e. shell washer. (be sure to order media to put in washer also) 4. A primer pocket brush. 5. Primers for your specific shell. (This is what makes the gun go boom) 5.

Details:Fish, Why u say Rcbs is better for new handloaders? What are some of the must haves a newby needs beside what comes in this kit? I saw some neat xtras on tv show such as primer bore, case trimmer and a few others are all these needed? can one powder work in 270WSM, 270, 30 30 or do I need different powders?
A:Never used the lock and load so, no comment
As for powder. Bullet choice makes a huge difference in powder choice but NO.
The 270 and 270 WSM can share powder. Nosler recommends RL19(Reloader) but the 30 30 shares no powder brand or speed in my books. Nosler recommends Varget. I would probably use IMR4895.
A:No you will have to buy shell plates for his calibers. Some plates may fit multiple calibers- some maybe specific to one caliber. Go to hornady's website with a list of your cartridge type and cross refernce it on their shell plate/shell holder fit chart. Something he will need later is a scale for reloading, trimmer with a chamfer/deburrer tool and calipers accurate to .0005 at least. As this was posted a while ago I hope this helps you or anyone else looking.
A:in a word yes as long as it is the classic kit. After a year or so or once you get a hang of it then get a progressive press
A:Yes this is a great machine to buy first and get you started..
A:The Hornady classic kit is a great kit that will last a lifetime. If you want to go faster then get their Hornady L-N-L AP press set.
Then a reloading manual, dies for your calibers.
The manual will tell you what powders, primers and bullets works best.
