Re: Basics I would need to start reloading
A Lee Loader costs about $30 and will do the job. You would also want a Lee Safety scale, another $30 or so. A primer pocket cleaner $5. A case mouth chamfer tool $5. Length trim tool $10.
I started out this way about a year ago for 7mm Rem Mag, and moved to a press, dies, etc. because I am also loading 204 Ruger. (No Lee Loader available)
This would get you started IMO.
