I have seen these starter kits from lee for like $28. But they don't have one for 300 blackout, could I use a .308 kit or .223 since its like morphed 223 brass with a .30 cal bullet what would I do? Or does anyone know of any other cheap, cheap, cheap loading kits (under75-100). I found primed 300 blckout brass for $28/100 and .30 cal bullets for $15/100 what type of powder would I need?

back in 1982 we didn't have the internet, and we might have heard about a KABOOM! just at our range/club.
Now, we get to hear about KABOOMS! all across the country. with pics sometimes, too.

But once it's done reloading is easy, as is checking to maintain your tolerances. If you screw it up on the initial set up the results could be disastrous. If you are just getting started get someone that knows what they are doing to help you set it up and walk you through it. Dillon has by far the best customer service I have ever come across in the gun industry.
Make sure you mark your powder dispensers with what is in them! It is easy when you have multiple set ups to get confused and put in the wrong powder. If you do this.....

I told him repeatedly that it COULD but shouldn't and he insisted. Finally his Team LDR stepped in and squared him away. I wanted to video tape that one too.....
