You will need good equipment that is capable of producing consistent ammo. A good press, Forster or Redding, is a good place to start.
If your budget won't accommodate an RCBS ChargeMaster Combo immediately, manually weighing your charges will be necessary. An RCBS 502, 505, 10-10 or Dillon beam scale (all manufactured by Ohaus) supplemented by a Redding trickler will provide accurate charges. These can be used with any powder measure or a set of Lee scoops.
The Wilson case trimmer is the most accurate and easiest to use.
A Redding bushing sizing die and Redding micrometer or Forster seating die will give straight ammo. Some prefer (especially for factory-chambered rifles) the Lee collet die in conjunction with a Redding body die rather than the bushing sizer.
This is the basic equipment you will need for for accurate reloading. After you have the reloading process in hand, you will want to read Glen Zediker's "Handloading for Competition." You will learn a great deal about equipment, preparation, and process from Zediker.
Hope this gets you started in the right direction.
