You can buy primers and powder online but you pay an additional $20 hazmat shipping. Tumblers are a nice thing to have but in the mean while you can put your used brass in a bucket with hot water, dishwashing detergent, and vinegar. It will make them shinny and clean off the powder residue.

Tumble your brass, your new dies will last longer.

I think you can buy powder and primers online but you have to pay a hazordous shipping cost, so do it in bulk.

Some other things you might need: case trimmer, calipers, primer pocket cleaner.

I'm actually getting back into reloading. A place by my house carries most of what I need at good prices. They even cast their own lead bullets at $30 per 1000. Might want to ask around the range if there are any reloading supply places around. Even reloading 9mm (people say its not worth it) I can save $30 or $40 per 1000 over WWB.

Buy WWB at Walmart than reuse the brass. If you combine reloading with cheap factory ammo you probably won't have to trim the cases, just toss them out after every couple reloads, and buy a new factory ammo to shoot up and replenish your brass.

Doesn't the Square B use dies that aren't interchangable with everything else out there? I've narrowed it to the Dillon 550B and the Hornady LNL AP. myself, once I get the money and quit buying guns for a while. I'd definately say to get a scale over a tumbler, along with calipers, a bullet puller, and several manuals.

According to dillon no need for primer pocket cleaning or case trimmer for straight case's
Being an auto mech. I own calipers and micrometer's already

You can buy once fired brass at MidwayUSA.com

Or try Brassmanbrass.com


Primers, buy in bulk from your FFL, Pool your orders with others to split the hazmat fee.

I pay 18.00 For federal primers, small pistol and large pistol per1000.

.40 brass from BMB is about 15.00 for 1000 nickel plated. + shipping. He even cleans em for you.

I have 2 friends who have Square Deals, One is 5 years old and one 12. Both are going strong. They do not use standard dies, only can use dillon. Excellent press for the money.

I have reloaded some 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP over 10 times and never needed to trim brass. I HAVE had to trim .357 and .44 Mag brass, but only after loading some hot rounds. Trimming pistol caliber brass is simply not something I consider necessary if using reasonable loads.

I've got one i can sell ya. They are worthless, the press is not really strong enough to handle any sort of demand......

You can have it for free, just pay shipping and its yours. I'll even send it with 9mm dies if you like.

Spend the extra cash and get the Dillon. I've had LEE and RCBS, both are great reloaders, but nothing compares to Dillon in quality and customer service. Remeber, they have a "NO BS" policy for parts, send the whole press back for overhaul/repairs and parts are FREE.

Hey Mullanman,

if RT doesn't want it i'll take it (for spare parts). I have the same one, thats why I was considering a Dillon progressive or higher quality single stage. The Lee press works, but its frustrating at times.

I bought my 650 from Brian Enos. Really helps you make the right decision.



RE: Lee press PM me your info. Its really just wasting space. This will be the new karma.
