I've just started reloading and got the Hornady single stage Classic kit. By no means did the kit include everything you need to get started, but it was a good start. I am happy with it.

I just thought of another suggestion, a friend of mine started out with a cheaper (but decent) press, he later decided it would be easier to have 2 presses, have the sizing die in one and the bullet seater in the other. It doesn't take anything for a press to seat a bullet, the major stress for a press is going to be in the resizing process, this is another thing you could consider, buy whatever you can afford and if u upgrade in the future, just use that press for a bullet seater or something like that which isn't hard on the press, any press can do a good job at that

I'm a fan of the RCBS Rockchucker, although I'm thinking I need to upgrade to a progressive press for 9mm and .40. You go through 'em a whole lot faster than you make them. :-)
