BFakes, I'd recommend stay with single stage. There is just too much that can and will go wrong with a progressive press. I do think that they are much better suited for handgun, and shotgun, then large centerfire rifle. The biggest reason is consistency. That is what you always strive for, and me personally, I don't think you can get that from a progressive. You can't FEEL the bullet seat, and you can't FEEL the primer seat, and you can only HOPE it drops the right amount of powder. No thanks, I'll pass!
The RCBS rock chuck press is a good start. Redding makes the " crem de LE crem" of presses, but for a premium.
Reloading is in itself a addiction, as is the STW. Once you get the right components, and you learn how to make them work for you, you are all set. If you have questions or problems, right here is where you probably can find the answer.
