Best Reloading Supplies for Rolling Your Own

Sierra Gamechanger

Like a wolf in sheep’s clothing, the Sierra GameChanger delivers match-grade accuracy in a tough hunting bullet. The lead core is surrounded by a concentric copper jacket that expands reliably and penetrates deep for maximum damage. A synthetic tip, tuned ogive, and boattail create a fast, balanced profile with optimum ballistic coefficients throughout the range of calibers. MSRP: $18-$26 (per 50) | sierrabullets.com


Lyman Victory Press

Victory Press

A sturdy, rugged press forms the foundation of every reloader’s bench, and Lyman’s new single-stage Victory Press is as tough as they come. The heavy, cast-iron O-style frame has a five-inch opening to accommodate magnum calibers, and the one-inch ram operates securely and efficiently with every pull. The steel-shielded primer tube falls in a straight line for reliable feeding with each stroke. The press includes both large and small primer tubes. MSRP: $200 | lymanproducts.com


RCBS Brass Boss

RCBS Brass Boss

Like rehab for rough cases, the RCBS Brass Boss puts all the steps for case conditioning in one handy spot. With six rotating stations, this all-in-one tool takes trimmed brass through the prep process, from chamfering to deburring to cleaning and regulating primer pockets. Four neck brushes accommodate most calibers, and RCBS includes a tub of dry lubricant. Runs on both U.S. and international outlets, with four different power cords included. MSRP: $190 | rcbs.com


Hornady Magnum Digital Vibratory Tumbler

Hornady Magnum Digital Vibratory Tumbler

Polishing a pile of brass goes quicker with the Hornady Magnum Digital Vibratory tumbler. The oversized drum accommodates up to 250 .30-06-equivalent cases or as many as 600 .38 Special cases. Set the digital timer and the tumbler shimmies and shakes for up to eight hours, creating brilliantly shiny brass with no fouling or residue to jam up dies, making for a smoother reloading process.MSRP: $128 | hornady.com
