Hello All, Let me start by saying that I have read just about everything on this site for reloading and started a thread last year thinking I was going to get started then. I of course still have a couple question before committing cash to this new hobby. 1. Decided on a minimum of the Lee 4 hole Turret Press with Auto Index. Not really interested in single stage as it seems like alot of setup and teardown. Gander has just the press on sale for $89.99 or $139 for the kit. How much in the kit is junk and will have to be replaced anyway? Basically, is the kit worth the $50 extra? 2. Is there another Turret Press in this price range that you would recommend over the Lee? 3. What is the minimum more that I'm going to need to spend to get started? 4. What extras do you consider the absolute essentials to make reloading easier and faster? 5. The calibers I'm looking to start with are 9mm, .45ACP and .223. The only one that I am seeing a considerable cost savings over factory ammo is the .45ACP. Am I wrong in this? The others I would be doing for the use of brass that I have been stockpiling. I'm sure there will be more questions as I work towards getting the machine setup. Thanks in advance for eveyone's input.
