Sometimes a bundled kit can save you a little money. I would say if you find a good price on a kit, go for it. In the summer you can always find stuff at yard sales too. Have you tried any pawn shops? Some reloader may have been down on their luck. I would check there first.

Dillon's probably the best, but you probably don't have to go all the way to the best when you're just starting out. RCBS, Hornady, and Redding all make good stuff.

just a question here, what it your level of experiance in reloading? because if you are a newcomer to reloading, starting off with a sinle stage would be better to be able to learn the basics first. a word of caution, if you are new to reloading, it can be very safe as long as you follow the safety guidelines, if not, it can be very dangerous and deadly.

I like the Dillon scale best, it's better than most for

measuring pistol ammo.

Lee is the least expensive system, and many like it.

Any well known name brand is good, competition

is stiff, so prices are very comparable.

A starter kit is OK, save a few bucks, but

over time here and there you're going to add things.

Get a couple really good reloading books new.

I like the Hornady and Lyman publications best,

but Speer and "ABCs of Reloading" are also good.
