You don't need the loading block. I would get a better loading manual. I would try Hornady one shot lube first instead of of lube and pad.

You can ditch that. For a few more bucks, you can opt for a Lee Pro auto disk and a powder measure riser.

Much, Much better scale, same dies, better manual, good case gauge, eliminated stuff you don't need.

I know it's more but it's a lifetime investment and it's only another $100

Beam scales? Ha!

Real men use beam scales.

I use a cheap old Redding scale that I bought new in the early 1980's. Just last year I got bored and decided to check it using various weights and a NIST calibrated precision digital scale that we have at work. My beam scale is accurate to better than .2% from 2 grains to 35 grains.:tongueout:

I have the hornady headspace gauges.
They work good.
Not much to them though.
A must have IMO.

I would suggest returning the lube & pad, FCD.

While I am running through about 11K in 5.56 right now. I use 2 shots on the pan, cover it in 1 layer of brass, shake the pan for 10 seconds, dump in case feeder, done!
