I've used a Square Deal for years now. The dies are different than for their other presses but if all you are going to do are pistol rounds than it's the best out there. you can change from one to another caliber fast and you can't beat the guarantee.
Yeah it's a bit pricey at first because you are starting from nothing. but once set up your cost per round can get real low. I look for deals on components then buy all I can looking down the road. And another plus to reloading is you can make a load that your weapon likes best.
There are less expensive presses out there. Lee makes a couple that are more affordable. Where you will not want to scrimp is things like a powder scale, caliper and the like. No matter what you're using you want to be able to check your work.
