G'day nathank, my first purchase was the RCBS rockchucker supreme kit(the powder thrower is useless IMO) & yes it had most of the big & some of the small items I guess but you soon realize there is a whole lot of other gear you need or it would be good to have if you want to make the best ammo you can. One thing about the starter kit is theres no case trimmer which you will eventually need but you can buy many of varying design, also does it have a priming tool?? I prefer a hand primer myself!
These are the things I see as being a necessity after buying such a kit-
Flash hole deburer
Primer pocket uniformer
Calipers(I prefer digital
Hornady OAL & headspace gauges & anvil(including modified case)
Bullet puller(I prefer collet style)
Ultra sonic case cleaner or tumbler(I prefer U/S!)
Then you start talking dies, while I have a RCBS press I think redding dies are the best out there for general reloading.
It all depends on what you want to get out of it as far as accuracy goes!
The biggest thing is do the research on the gear & components before you buy(as you are doing).
Good luck mate.
