Look for used reloading gear at gun shows. Presses are nearly indestructable, so buying used is usually not a problem. There are plenty of used dies also available at shows, but you never know if they have been abused or not, so ya takes your chances with them.

buy a single stage press......just about as simple, cheap, and bulletproof (pun intended) as they come

Head over to the reloading forum:

I recommend a Lee Turret Press.

as a beginner get a LEE Anniversary kit in your favorite caliber to get ya started it will have all the basics all ya'll needa supply are powder, bullets and brass to start loading if ya decide its something ya enjoy then start shopping for a used RCBS Rockchucker press to upgrade the basic LEE press a great bargain is to look for an older BONANZA COAX press at garage sales, ya will find em for around $20 or so and are the exact same press now sold for around $300 and a favorite amongst bench rest shooters etc.. a close friend just recently got EVERYTHING including alot of dies etc... at an estate sale all for one price for $35!! All top of the line as the seller had no idea or intrest in what all the reloading stuff was......... just wanted to liquidate the estate angry ex wives sell off ex husbands entire reloading collection all of the time at fire sale prices at garage sales and swap meets as well...... start collecting manuals, doesn't matter how old its all good refference material

BTW I spell even worse so ya got an edge there ;)

Be aware reloading won't save you money....you just shoot more.
