Yes I did. I got a job back at the airport. Much more stress free.

Jetman-
Been hand loading since mid '80s. Have loads for my 22-250 in 60 grain partitions and several lighter ballistic tip weights. Only qwuesiton I have is what is twist rate. Standard is 1/14 which positively limits you to a maximum 60 grain bullet. I will say that is one sweet looking setup, congratulations.

Its a 1/12 twist according to the website. So does that make it better?

From all my internet serches so far, everything is pointing towards handloading for best accuracy. What would I need to make it happen, and how much money does it cost? I see all these "kits" for sale, but I dont know what stuff I REALLY need to start. Any advice?

Lee, RCBS, Hornady, and others make single stage presses in a kit form that has everything you need to get started. Personally, I like the Hornady deal because it comes with their reloading manual, scale, priming tool, etc and 500 free bullets (through rebate and worth about $125.00). Hornady customer service is outstanding.

You will also need dies. Lee makes a deluxe rifle set that has both the full length sizing die and the neck sizing die. The neck sizing die is what you will need to handload cartridges specific to your rifle to get the best groups.

Powder and primers and you are in business. Another item to consider is a tumbler to clean spent brass.

Once you have the press, you will be able to purchase additional dies for any rifle or pistol you own.
