It has been 15 or maybe close to 20 years since I've had to round up all the crap necessary to load for a new (to me) round. I just bought and am waiting for delivery of a 6.5 Grendel upper for one of my AR's. I'll start out with a couple of boxes of factory ammo to plink with but I'll also buy a few hundred pieces of brass and load. I've already got some good powders and plenty of primers.

I searched just a little while ago for a set of Redding Competition dies and "Woah Boy!", over $300! I'm pretty sure I wasn't paying anything like that when I collected my shelves full of reloading dies. I feel like a latter day Rip Van Winkle who goes to sleep in the 90's and wakes up in a world of $30,000+ Toyotas.

Looking forward to getting the rifle shooting. The 6.5 round gives an AR platform a better than AK level punch but with FAR better accuracy and distance.

I think I paid around $250 for my Redding "S" comp dies in 6.5x47 Lapua. Then had to buy the bushing for the re-sizer and a mandrel die separately plus a de-primer. But must admit they are wonderful.
