"Are there better options for the money? "
I certainly think so. First, the RC is okay but, trust me, it's not magic and has no advantage over any other iron press of it's type; it they look alike, they will work alike. Lee's Classic Cast single stage press is just as big, just as strong, perhaps more precisely machined and has much better user features. If it had been made when I got my RC my main press would be red.
Digital scales/digital powder dumpsters --- I suppose those who have liminted mechanical skills are just as well served with them as anything else but they cost a lot and and they rarely last very long - unless you think two years is a long time! Digital scales are no more accurate than balance beam scales and no faster to use if the beam is used correctly - most are not but, that's no fault of the tool.
Kits ... well, IMHO, kits tend to suk and are never complete no matter how much you pay for 'em. Each loader has, or will have, prefered ways to work and that means different features in his tools. A kit gives you what the kit maker wants to sell, not what you may want to use. But you can buy just as much use by choosing comparable tools of other brands that will total a lot less than $700+.
Stuck case pullers are inexpensive and there's no valid reason for a serious reloader not to have one. Cases get stuck in sizers and the rims pull off due to a improper or insufficent case lube. Proper case lubing is a learned 'feel' thing and most of us go from too much in the wrong places to too little anywhere so most of us stick a case or two or three or ...
If you never need an erasure on a pencil perhaps you won't need a bullet puller. Otherwise, it's wise to have one and the inertia type is inexpensive, the most versatile and all most of us will ever need.
Bet all that's helpful, right?
