which reloader?

Alright, so I want to get into reloading my own ammo and have done a little web research on reloaders but want to get some opinions from people who have used some. From what I have read Lee makes a pretty good reloader and so does RCBS. Anyone use these?

    I don't care for Lee equipment. I prefer RCBS, Redding, and Forster. I have a rockchucker press and the Bonanza co-ax press.

    RCBS reloader

    Does this seem like a reasonable buy for a beginnner reloader?

    RCBS Rock Chucker

    What are the differences in the new models vs. the units made 10, 15 or 20 years ago?

    that will get you started. From there, you'll see what else you need. Get with a friend who has been reloading for awhile, to set you up the first time, at least. The main thing, when starting, is to go slow and keep your batches small. That way, when you make a mistake, you have not lost very much.

    Besides having a larger frame and the ambidextrous handle, the new presses are made in China. They aren't bad, but they aren't as tight as the older production. I like the close tolerances of the Redding presses. Forster Co-Ax is also well made, but a little too complex for my taste; it's a matter of preference.
