    I would start with a loading kit from RCBS, Hornady, or any of the major manufactures that have been around for a while. Most of the kits come with a loading manual which is the most important piece of equipment. Read it and keep it close by there is a wealth of info in any of them, most all the bullet manufactures make reloading manuals, with a ton of different powders listed, and the bullet selection is awesome today, read up match a good bullet for the game you are going to hunt, and good luck you will have fun with it, I do.

        First you need a manual, read it cover to cover. You will need a press, a scale, dies for the caliber you want to load for, case lube, a deburing tool, a good solid bench, a priming tool, case trimmer, just to name a few, if you are new to this a friend that has reloaded before is a good idea also.

            Go to your local gun shop. Talk to the proprietor. Take a pencil and lots of paper. And a huge wad of cash. Then buy what he suggests. Take it home, and immediately hide it from your significant other in a place they'll never think to find it, because that place is going to be your new haven when you master the science of handloading. Make sure this space can accommodate 2 people, because you're going to need a friend with prior experience and possibly someone to drive you to the hospital or the pawn shop in case your hideout is discovered by the spouse.
