It is a bit pricey to get started but good equipment, if taken care of, will last the rest of your life. I have been reloading for about 35 years and I still have my original tools, I have added along the way and sold a few things off that I didn't use but if you buy what you need as you go it isn't too bad. I prefer single stage presses and I also like to weigh every powder charge when I load rifle ammo, my pistol charges I throw with a measure. That RCBS kit is a good one and although the price has gone up a little since I bought mine for $69.95 back in the day, it is still quality stuff.
Like the others have said, get the manuals and read them, especially all the boring stuff in the front!
