    What is the best dies, reloading press, etc in your guys opinion? I want to start reloading my 6.8 but I don't want to have to learn the hard way. I also plan to reload .223, 9mm, 40 s&w, and 45 ACP. But figured I would start with 6.8 SPC so I can shoot it more and dial in a nice load for hunting since that is why I originally built the gun.

    I learned on the RCBS single stage and then bought a Lee Classic turret press. It was good learning on the single stage but wish I would've bought a Dillion 550 or 650. I use RCBS and Lee dies as well, haven't tried others so I can comment on them. I like RCBS for all products I've tried, Lee products were ok but I didn't like them as much.

    Sierra pro hunters with 25 grains of H4198 and cci 400 primers worked perfectly! Sub moa groups at 100 and even grouped just over 1 inch at 200 yards. Very happy with them.

    I was turned on to 6.8 SPC and 110 grn SPHs by a friend and they've run accurately and flawlessly through all four 6.8s I've built.
