If you are serious about cleaning your brass, nothing works better than a tumbler with stainless steel media. Brass comes out looking factory new, often much more shiny and the primer pocket are spotless as well.

Was your first car a new muscle car?
Read first (ABC's of Reloading)- buy later.

about the same as buying your next gun. what i tell people is take the money you are thinking about using on your next firearm purchase and buy your loading gear. buying used, especially dillon or rcbs and your set. both companies support their products regardless of how it got to your hands.

The way I look at it is reloading ammo is cheaper than factory. If you going to start reloading someday the sooner you get started the sooner you start making you initial cost back. Maybe only reload for one caliber when you get started pick up extra dies as you go.

check out the Lee single stage press kit or the RCBS rockchucker supreme kit, I have the RCBS. Beyond that you will need dies, shell holders and a case trimmer. I got the Lee shellholder set and for rifle dies I use the Lee RGB dies they are cheap and work fine, just don't have a fancy box and nice outer finish, the inside of the die does the work and they work just as well as any. If I buy brass I buy once fired, it is still cheaper than buying factory, even buying new brass is cheaper when you factor in reusing the brass.

If I was you I would do what I did, keep checking armslist and Craigslist and wait for a good deal. I got a pretty good setup for 200 bucks. Remember, patience is a virtue

I just found a Lee Anniversary kit for $118 and 4 die carbide for 9mm for $46

Comes with a lot of extras.

2 month wait though.
