The RCBS Rebel Plus reloading kit finally arrived yesterday. I wasn't sure if it was ever going to actually arrive. When I ordered it around December 6th it was the only kit that I could find that I could actually place an order for. It was supposed to be back in stock around January 6th. Looks like they were true to their word. I checked a week later and it couldn't be ordered and had an in stock date of April..... I figured to start with .223. I ordered a die set and it should be here in about 2 weeks. I was getting a little uneasy reading up on reloading with all the different tools available and I didn't have a checklist for what I actually needed but waited patiently for my kit to arrive. I think it'll be a good starter set so I can learn the ropes. I guess the real challenge is just starting.... Hunting down the brass, bullets, and primers. Oh yeah, and powder. So far everywhere I've looked everything is still out of stock. Any recommendations on powder? Hopefully it won't take to long to accumulate the supplies I need to get started. I have plenty of more reading to do while I wait.

Hey Frog,

Welcome to S&W!

RCBS (Go Green) makes excellent tools!

Items: MANUALS (as in several. Hornaday, Lyman, Lee...etc These can be found used)

For rifle. Case Trimmer. IMPERIAL SIZING WAX! (you NEED this)!! Primer pocket/flash hole uniformer.

Loading blocks. Scale. Powder Thrower. Dribbler..

H 322 & H 335 are two favorites for the 223.

All of the above, except the IMPERIAL SIZING WAX!, can be located used...in normal times. Gun Club bulletin board. Divorce/Estate Sales. CraigList. Ebay.... (local LGS has a couple of scales & turret presses, gently used, as of Monday)

Reloader's are always "upgrading".....

Right now....everything is hard to get.

You do want to acquaint yourself with CH4D. They make fantastic tools/dies! (they make dies for EVERY BLAME THANG!) Their case trimmer, PRIMER POCKET SWAGER/SEATER ....etc are really well made. (have had my CH4D case trimmer for 40+yrs, still SHARP!)

Hope this helps.

Later, Mark

Seek out and take a NRA Metallic Cartridge Reloading course... You'll be thankful you did.
