basic loading kits arent that pricey. you dont need a dillon xl650 with all the gadgets to get started.
410 and 45colt ammo isnt that cheap either. most of the cost of ammo is the brass. with most normal pistol rounds like 38 357 44 45 you can use lead bullets cast your own and re-use your cases and its a HUGE difference in price. even if you dont cast bullets and buy pre-made lead bullets the difference in price is amazing. i can make lead 45 colt and 357 and 44 for less than the price of off the shelf steel cased 9mm
i bought a rcbs starter kit in the late 80's and i still use it today. its a companion to my xl650 and i use it to load 100 or less round count at a time. just something relaxing about a single stage press.
