I reload .45 right now. Pistol calibers are much easier than rifle calibers unless it's a straight wall case. I inherited some old equipment from my GF's dad, so it didn't cost too much to get started. I'll prolly start doing .223 here pretty soon as I do shoot AR's a lot. It's decently fun, but a little boring lol. It's really only cheaper if you want to make really good loads, hollowpoints (or other expensive rounds), or don't mind cheap cast lead bullets for super cheap rounds.

7.7 jap ammo for my t-99 can cost 30$+ for 2 rds. I have saved all my brass that I have shot for it so far about 50 rds and I can make 30-06 brass fit and the .303 bullet it uses is easy to get so I should be able to reload for 15 bucks for 20 rounds, and I can make some better loads.

I am also looking to make some good and hot .357 rounds for my smith and wesson and I want a .357 lever later on.

Ya if the 7.7 is that expensive you should be able to reload it super cheap, especially if you're resizing .30-06 brass. The biggest price would be your initial investment in the equipment. The .357 rounds would be even easier.

AK's aren't accurate enough for a scope anyway.

Ultimak makes a rail that mounts to the gas tube that is pretty rigid, only really good for a red dot though. A lot of AK's have the receiver side scope mount as well.

I can strip and build my xD just about that fast without trying to go fast, great design, and its tool-less. Still thats pretty quick in that video considering you need that allen wrench or mini pry bar.

Lots of people use those on S-12's (AK-12 gauge) just for a cheap red dot for the tacticool looks.

looking for an optic for the AR. Looking at a primary arms red dot. Though I would really like to piece together or buy a 3-9x scope with a mini red dot mounted on top. I saw NC star makes one but I've read the quality is questionable of the brand over all, anybody have any other brand suggestions?

Anyways this is the idea..

i have had no problem with ncstar products including scopes and weapon mounted lights. the quality may not be equal to that of more expensive products but they are very well made and are worth the money, and they have great customer service. that is the idea i have for my ar because my flip up sights dont clear the riser so i need to add a red dot on top.

Look at the Lee stuff. Should be able to get a press and everything you need to get started with about a $130 kit. Then factor in another $60 or so for 2 sets of dies. Way under your budget. For $100 or less you should be able to get power, primers, and bullets as well.

More expensive stuff like RCBS, Redding, Lyman, etc will cost more coin, but why bother? I'd say get a Lee setup for now to make sure you like it, and then if you want to get into it more get a better progressive press.

I reload on a single stage RCBS Rock Chucker press now, and it's easy, but kinda time consuming. I will likely look at a Lee Turret Progressive press or another if I'm going to get into it more.

My vote for AR optic is Eotech, love mine.

Unless it's a nice 24" variant or a larger caliber tack driver, then you need a nice scope.

That is the exact upper i want for mine...... in .556. That almost looks like a .308 in the pic but I could be wrong.

That one is 5.56 as well. The barrel is a heavy profile barrel which makes it look so big. One of the most accurate guns I've ever shot, but is a very heavy gun to tote around lol.

You can build a similar upper for pretty cheap, prolly something like $600 + optics.
