Default Reloading Gadgets?

I am thinking I may need (read that want) a few more gadgets for my loading bench. I have a few things in mind but would like your opinions. Other than the basic tools, press, dies, powder measure, lube system, and scales, what do you find useful and why?

Never forget your dreams. Work very hard to make you dreams a reality.

I would be lost without these additions to the basics:

case trimmer
neck lubing brushes
chamfering tools
primer pocket brushes
primer pocket reamer (I use a lot of military brass)
collet style bullet puller
stuck case remover (used only twice and home made)


Think safety, act safely, live long enough to enjoy it

Scale weights ,case remover(never have used it but I'm ready ) ,extra scales ,case cleaner, Hand primer ,just to name a few. More than one press also comes in handy at times ,maybe you just need a few round and haven't finished what you are set up on . I have single stage and progressive both setup but probably use the single stage the most .

I got the case trimmer when I bought my first batch of loading stuff. My daughter bought me a dial caliper for XMas. Now I am trimming all of my cases. I never realized how much they did flow. Of course they worked fine before I started trimming, but you know things are...

First thing I would get would be a handpriming tool, then a powder measure. For trimming/chamfering I use a cordless drill to eliminate a lot of the hand work. A quality easy to read scale is a big plus.

1. Electric case trimmer SAVES TIME
2. Electric powder dispencer SAVES TIME
3. Electric powder sacle SAVES TIME

I reload quite a lot and SAVEING TIME is a must for me...<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Hunt Safe!
