I use the older Lee hand prime tool, as well as the built in primer seater on the RCBS and Dillon presses. I use a digital scale these days but have an old Lyman scale – you must have an accurate manual powder scale no matter what! There are many good ones.

I have various loading dies all are good – Redding, Lee, Hornady, RCBS. The Redding is a Micrometer model for very accurate seating. For sizing where they are available (popular calibers) I recommend the RCBS X-Sizer Die – this die limits the growth of the overall length of the case and eliminates the need to trim as often (maybe ever). I have some .308 match brass that has been reloaded more than 2 dozen times and still going strong.
