Default New to reloading, is this a good deal?

Hello all.* I have been tossing around the idea of reloading my own ammo since I bought my ar15 5 years ago. Recently I bought a xd40 and have decided to make the leap and buy everything needed to reload. I found a Lee Turret press set up for $500 with this included:
- Lee 4 turret press
- Extra turret
- Large & small safety prime system
- Auto powder through system (double disk measure, universal rifle expander die, powder hopper)
- Powder scale
- Case trimmer, chamfering tool, deswaging tool, flash hole tool
- Case gauge (.223, .45)
- Deluxe Lee die sets (.223, .45)
- Universal decapping die
- Lyman case tumbler
- RCBS media seperator
- Cleaning media
- 500 small rifle primers
- 500 large pistol primers
- 1x 8lb jug of surplus military powder
- 1x 1lb Accurate rifle powder
- 1x 1lb Hodgdon's Tite Group powder
- +/- 500 rd .45 brass
- +/- 100 rd .223 brass
- .223 reloading manual
Does sound like a good deal or should I keep looking around? Thanks in advance to all.

Depending on the scale and the case trimmer that could be 700-800 worth of stuff.

A little high IMO, prices that I estimated are what I've seen at recent gun shows in Dayton, Ohio.
