    Unless you use Wilson Dies, you'll need a press to start out with. I'd suggest Flea-Bay, Craigs List or your local pawn shop, in that order.

    There are a bunch of Rockchuckers on Fleabay right now btw.

    Then you'll need dies and a whole raft of other stuff.

    You might want to consider a packaged kit like RCBS or Lee or Hornady offers, that gets you started at a good price.

    Id probably be looking into a lee kit. The gunshop 2 blocks from my house carries dies. Id need it for 308 only right now.the stuff i have for trade would be either archery equip, my scope off my backup rifle(3.5-10x50 illuminated from redhead), or cash if i dont have what you guys would want.

    Not sure what the current price is, but, the Lee Anniversary kits are generally a low cost way to get started with a full set of everything except dies. Not the most bullet proof / bomb proof press. But they will make accurate ammo. And will last if you do not abuse them. I have loaded well over 10K rounds with mine.

    If you decide you do not like reloading, you are not out a lot of money. If you decide you want to go further and buy one of the fancier presses, you have a good backup or dedicated press.
