My first step was the same press, 9mm Hornady dies, a pound of CFE Pistol and some 124 gr XTPs. I’m still pretty new, but I now reload .223, .270 Win, and about to start 7.62×39. I also lucked into about 50 lbs of 9mm range brass for free, from a buddy who cleaned up a police range.

Yes it is terrible disease… All started for me with a 5.56 ar15 my new son in law insisted we each needed to build one. So to feed it I started with the breech lock kit and 223 lee die set. . then Johnnys recommended digital scale and lyman weight verification kit that works awesome… next it was a 6,5 grendel upper for deer hunting. More new dies, hornady headspace comparator and bullet comaparator as well. Then it was the Lee loadmaster turret press setup for 9mm and 223 because single stage was not fast enough.

Jesse, the Lee 9mm dies were also my 1st dies, after 15 years, they still produce great rounds. The Lee ‘C’ press was also my first press, but somehow I managed to break it. So I upgraded to an RCBS ‘partner’ press. This has served me well over the years, but as you called it, “ADDICTION” is making me shop around for a bigger, better press. Brother, you haven’t been “addicted” yet! There are going to be a LOT more that you’ll be buying! ?

Charlie, you should hear my wife screech every time I tell her that I need something else! Now, after 12+ sets of dies, numerous molds, etc, she just groans…. ?
