Bigbore, 270 wsm is definately a bullet to be reloading, I was at GM the other day and was floored by the price of ammo. Have you bought your reloading equipment yet? If not, I would suggest buying a reloading book or two and reading them first. Since you are looking at Nosler bullets, I would recommend getting their reloading manual for sure and maybe the ABC's of reloading as well. I have 3 books on reloading the ABC's one, the Lee reloading manual and the hornady reloading manual. each one has great information and I definately suggest you do some reading and a little research before you get your equipment.

I personally went with the Lee classic turret press. I reload for both pistol and rifle and it was the best solution for me. the most useful piece of equipment I have is the RCBS chargemaster scale system. I bought the digital scale portion first until I saved my $$$ for the powder dispensor part. It is very accurate and when you are developing loads for your rifle, the digital scale is a definate plus.

I could go on from here, but I will let others offer their advice as well. There are a number of people here who reload as well. Lee dies are a great bargain, they work really well and don't cost and arm and a leg either.

One of the most important things to remember is to use load data for the exact bullet you are using. Don't use data for a different bullet that seems the same. Your pressures may be way off! Definitely get some books on the subject. LoadData.com is a great source online.
