Re: Is this a good book on reloading?

RCBS will work in Lee machines. They were designed for single stage loading and using them in a progressive machine, a Dillon for example, takes a little thought. For instance, I use the seating die to seat only and have a separate crimp die so as to not over stress the brass.

I agree that Locktite on the take down screw might make life difficult later on, but the elevation adjustment screw on the rear sight is another matter. I think a tiny drop of purple ought to do the trick and still leave it adjustable.

That Remington ammo is plenty good enough. I get consistent 1 1/2" groups at 100 yards with my 81 using these boolits and they hit about as hard as .308 so you should be able to bring Bambi down with no problem.
