I will have to look at perhaps a Lee Kit but then not sure what I have to buy after the initial purchase. What I cannot afford is the $700.00 kits from other companies though.

Look for good used equipment. I just bought a complete Lyman outfit for my brother in law that was sitting in a box at the local rifle shop. Press, powder measure, scales, and a bunch of other stuff. $150.00 out the door.

Cast iron presses are about idiot proof. This is pretty simple mechanical stuff. I had no problem recommending it to my brother in law. Buying used reloading equipment isn't much of a risk.

Watch the paper. Do a search on Rockchucker on EBAY.

Steve,

I have reloaded for 35 years, started when I was 15. I still use the same RCBS press and I have loaded 10,000+ rounds with no problems. RCBS has the best customer service policy around and their kits are reasonably priced.

RCBS Rock Chucker Supreme Single Stage Press Master Kit - MidwayUSA

All you need are the dies and components and you are ready to go! It should pay for its self in short order. You can always upgrade your equipment as time goes on but you would be farther ahead than buying 10 boxes of factory ammo.
