Hi. Here is a list of 308 reloading equipment that I've put together other then a press. Would someone look it over and either add, delete or say I have everything and send me a PM. Also, I'd only be reloading for my Remington 700 SPS Tactical with the 20" bull barrel. Thanks

Scrap this: Lee Safety Magnetic Powder Scale 100 Grain Capacity
While they do, kinda, work, they are probably the worst scale around. VERY frustrating to use.
Look instead (if you want to stay with a balance beam type) at the RCBS 505 (made by OHAUS).
If you want to go digital, look at the PACT line (PACT also makes the digital scales for many of the "name brand" companies)

Other than seeing a few items that won't get used more than a couple of times (before you decide to leave them in a drawer), it looks like you have everything required.

Reloading Equipment

What items don't you think I'd only use a couple of times? If I don't really need them I can save a little money and NOT get them at all.

Gizmo's you won't need/use
Lyman Case Length Headspace Gage 308 Winchester
Hornady Custom Grade New Dimension Neck Sizer Die (back your FL die off 1 turn, or just put a washer under it, and it will act as a neck sizer)

I'd use a regular hardware/grocery store funnel, if you don't already have one that fit's into the case mouth. Lee Powder Funnel 22 to 45 Caliber

You can make your own pocket cleaner out of a screwdriver

A couple things I just noticed, I don't see a deburing/chamfering tool (used after you trim the necks), nor do I see a Hornady (or any other) manual on your list.
