I just jumped into reloading in Dec and while I am sure I am paying a bit more for components and having to hunt stuff down on the internet/multiple LGSs, I am finding what I need. One thing is for sure, if not for reloading, my .223 and .45 would be gathering dust right now. I still have factory ammo in stock because I have been shooting nothing but reloads.

I would find a book start reading up and get some components on back order. I started about 4 months ago and im shooting more then i was 6 months ago. Buy stuff in bulk when you can and use what you can find. I started reloading and i couldnt find any of the powders listed in my book as the "best to use". So i went online to manufactures websites and read up in different books to be able to use what i could find.

I'd look for a dillon 550 press RL550B on line.
Dillon has a NO B.S. Warranty and they stand behind it. Even if you bought the press used, they WILL and HAVE fixed them.
I bought mine NEW way back in I think it was 97 or 98. Since I shot in matches, I put about 100K rounds through it. I brought it in (as I live nearby) and they basically GAVE ME a new press with THREE of my old parts on it!!
NO CHARGE!

This is about right. You may have to look a bit harder, and it may take a bit more time, but you can get started now. You may not be able to use the powder that everybody raves about, but you can find powder that works. You also may not be able to buy in bulk, but if you look, you can find the parts at a good price. Much like buying ammo right now, you just have to keep looking for a good deal on components.
Try looking at midway. They have a good selection of components and reloading tools and accessories. They have always been fast to ship and reasonable priced.
Hope this helps.

Lyman has a good manual on shotshell reloading with several gauges, lengths and recommended components, I'm sure there are many other reference materials available if you "dig into it deep enough" , good hunting for ref. manuals and materials. I bought my MEC 600jr way back in 1973 and still use it occaisionlly . And it still works fine.
