I very much favor obtaining individual pieces of equipment based on their capability and your needs. The following link covers a situation very similar to your own, and my contribution describes a minimalist approach to building first class ammo.
Wanting to Reload...Need basic Equipment...? - Sniper's Hide Forums
I recommend The ABC's of Reloading
and a good reloading manual like Lyman's to introduce you to the practice. When you understand what you're trying to accomplish and what tools are available, then you can devise a tentative reloading process. Studying and reading the online forums, taking advantage of the Search
function, you can obtain a good familiarization of the ins and outs. If you want to know it all before buying equipment, Handloading for Competition
by Glen Zediker will get you there, but it is advanced and has the disadvantage of the author's writing style.
With that, if you take the shortcut of getting a kit, only the RCBS Rockchucker kit represents a real value in what you get. However, unless you're loading for handgun, the powder measure may not be of much use to you; mechanical measure s don't do well with the coarse powders that rifles like. I don't see any great savings in anyone else's kit. All of the kits come with a mediocre selection of accessories; IMO, you're always better off getting some decent accessories.
Reading the books is the place to start. Studying, and participating in, the forums will add greatly to your understanding. I should mention that Sniper's Hide
's search function is defective. Another forum, Accurate Reloading
, has a great repository of info and a working search capability. There are also some good DVD's available these days.
Many recommend finding a mentor, and I won't say that it's a bad idea. The downside is that you may just end of copying whatever he does, which may not be exactly what you need to be doing.
