he should already be deburing the ID and OD of the case neck, after resizing and triming to cut to size anyway.
meaning he needs a good caliper capable of 3 digits past thedecimal.. preferably digital or a very easy to read dial caliper.. plus he needs a grain scale.. not a gram scale AND a reload manual.. and the proper projectiles, usually with a cannelure.. and powder that matches the load data int he manual, for that weight of projectile.
I don't use nosler bal;istic tips in any of my tube laoders.. though might in my savage clip fed 340 boltgun...
I'm using win softpoints for my marlin 336 and winchesters... specifically called out for the 30-30.. not generic .308 projectiles..
these will not be carbide diese.. so case lube will be needed.
primer pocket tools too...
hard to jump into reloading without doin it with both feet. in for a penny .. in for a pound
I agree.. 25$ is cheap. must have been used.. or were lee dies.
