Since this is reloading 101, thought I'd bring up scales for measuring powder and overall product.

A grain is 1/7000 a pound and anything 0.1 gram accuracy won't cut it. (accuracy of 1.5 grains when loading 7-8 grains in handgun ammo is not safe).

I found that Amazon is a great source for electronic scales (about 1/4 the price of head shop scales and 1/8 the price of gun shop scales) and they had the Lee dippers (for powder) that I needed.

Gunbroker (if you shop carefully) has primers. I'm loading small batches for 45colt.
