Tricklers are cheap. I have a plastic one from Hornady that works great. My scale is a 50 dollar Hornady too. Both are about 5 years old and still running.As mentioned before, I have or will soon have most of the stuff needed. I do need to figure out what’s gonna work in the way of a trickler and a scale. I don’t wanna go cheap, but I don’t want to blow a ton of money getting these. Any bang for the buck suggestions I won’t have to replace for a few years?

Suggestions on how to test loads/ determine if I’ve done what I wanted to accomplish? I’m typically a 1-1.5moa shooter most days of the week, at least with my center fire rifles. Don’t have a sled or a chrono. I’m feeling like buying a chrono is going to be a must, esp considering my primary concern is building consistent center fire rifle hunting loads. What’s the general rule of thumb? Start at the minimum, and ramp up loads until you start seeing warning signs, then back off a little? Currently I’m looking at loading plinking pistol rounds and rifle hunting rounds.
38spl/223 was mentioned earlier as a good starting point for reloading due to ease, is that every one else’s opinion as well?
any suggested reading/videos on testing/developing loads?
