Hello all, I have been researching tss for the last year or so until now when I found this site. I hunt primarily waterfowl and am looking to get into reloading.

Thanks! I will be sure to check in on your results and thanks for your suggestions. I am currently searching for a press. I've read your post about the basic tools needed and noticed you didn't have one but that you used a drill press. I will probably try to reload steel, tss, and some of the other tungsten variants also. I was thinking about getting a lee load all 2. I do realize that when reloading these materials that every component should be weighed on a scale and that the press would only be used for crimping and resizing the brass hence I figured such a cheap set up would be ok.

you dont need the drill press.just a regular drill will do roll crimps just fine.

Run, don't walk away from a Lee shotshell press. If you can afford any kind of tungsten shot you can afford a used MEC 600 jr. Probably $75-$125 bucks.
