Take a good hard look at the Lee Classic Turret
kit from Midway for about $215. Add a $100 digital scale
, a $10 Harbor Freight caliper, and buy a decent powder measure
for another $85 or so and you'll be golden. I took the auto indexing stuff off of my Classic Turret before I ever used it because I prefer to load bottleneck rifle cartridges in batches. I'd use it in batches for the .40 too.
Later on you can "upgrade" to a Dillon or Hornady progressive to speed up pistol rloading if you like. I can't see myself ever loading, or wanting to load rifle cartridges on my 550b.
