Default which kit?

Should I get the Lee Breech Lock Challenger Single Stage Press kit? Or the Hornady Lock-N-Load Classic Single Stage? I understand the Hornady comes with more stuff and its better quality. Also considering RCBS Rock Chucked Supreme Master Kit?

I'm going to start reloading primarily handguns (9mm and. 45 acp) and shot shells (20 gauge)

And is it easy to get into reloading with no prior experience?

I have the RCBS and load 9mm, .40 and .45's. It is easy, you just have to be patient, and mindful of what you are doing. There is no rushing when loading - safety is the most important thing!

It is a fun hobby.

Well the hornady is on sale for less than the RCBS. So any recommendations between Lee and Hornady?

The Hornady is an excellent press. If it's still on sale, buy it. The Rock Chucker is pretty much the standard that single stage presses are judged by. Lyman Crusher is excellent as well.

My personal favorite, by far, is the Redding "Big Boss."

I have the Hornady SS and I love it. If its on sale, buy it. I probably won't ever buy or need anything else.
