    Hornady, RCBS, Lyman all are a great choice. Stick with the O frame style very relyble and strong.
    Witch ever one you choose get a second manual in my opinion the lyman manual is the best.
    Now IMO if you want the Cadalac get
    Forster coax press,
    both a Speer and Lyman manual
    your choice of dies
    Lyman universal case trimmer
    chamfer tool
    a powder throw (Lyman, RCBS, Horady and Lee are all good choices)
    a scale I use the Lee beam scale and a digital
    a powder trickler
    a loading block
    primer pocket cleaner

    this will get you going

    Befire you do anything with the hardware, read the book. Not just the Speer Book that came with the press but go buy a couple of books from the brand of pills you want to load.

    You have to get the correct powder (good luck with that), typically it takes me 3 to 4 months on propellant, you'll need the correct primers, reloading dies, a case trimmer, a set of dial or didital calipers just to get started and thats loadinjg to recommended specification, whic you should do because you don't know squat.

    Use the wrong components and you'll destroy your firearm.
