I owned RCBS years ago and it was GREAT! But now, I'm in your position and want to re-load my AR only. I'm considering the "Lee's 5oth anniverary reload kit" from Cabela's for $85. That includes press, powder measure, scale, and few other access. All you'd need is a set of .223 dies for $13 (Lee). If you buy before 12/8, Cabela's has a $20 off coupon for orders over $100. .223 is a small cart and doesn't require the muscle of a large cal belted mag. It is "O" frame design so should work OK on .223. This is a starter and not for serious shooters loading multiple calibers. It does however have the quick change breech blocks (2) included.
