    I keep getting that Blue Press Catalog from Dillion and it looks simple. or so I think.

    They sell the press which looks like it does everything. But I dont understand what else is needed

    I see primer installers, so I presume the press doesnt do that.

    I see tumblers which makes sense to me.

    I see case trimmers, expanders and a host of crimping dies.

    So what the hell do I need? Whats bullshit?

    All of those are great.

    you can go complicated, or simple. I have a lee press w/ autoprime, and a lee case trimmer you put in a drill. Then the press and dies. Its a very simple set up. But it works.

    Go to those sites, and accuratereloading.com.

    I have a lee case trimmer but just trim by hand since after a turn or two I'm done. I almost bought a redding trimmer but I really don't need a $50 one :hs:
