Most reloading setups contain a sliding scale, a pair of calipers, and a powder thrower. Using digital and electronic equipment in reloading allows you to reload both faster and more precisely. Regular dial calipers are a mainstay of reloading. They allow the reloader to precisely measure the dimensions of the rounds they are working on. A typical reloading setup uses a powder thrower and trickier in order to measure charges. However, the Rangemaster 2000 from RCBS is a great choice even on a tighter budget. The scale electronically measures your components to an accuracy of 0.1 grains quickly and accurately.
