    I love to shoot and I am looking into maybe reloading ammo myself. I have absolutely no idea where to start. I looked at a Lee Anniversary Starter kit. It was around $90.00. What is a good place to start. I mostly want to reload handgun ammo.

    The aniversary kit is a nice setup to begin with. I have one myself. Now that I'm a bit more skilled, I'm seriously looking for a progressive press. I'll keep this one for rifle rounds, which is a decent reason to start off on one. One thing you notice when looking at picts of reloading benches is that most people keep the single-stage presses they start on. Whether it's just to de-cap or any other singe stage operation, there's always a use.
    Have fun, check your measurements and work often, and don't be afraid to ask questions. We've all been there.

    It would be very helpful to know what calibers you plan to reload and how much you need to load a week or month to give you accurate advice.

    Search or Interact?

    Go for it. It's a great place to start if you have a limited budget and you're not too sure about reloading as a hobby. My first press was a progressive and I’m not lacking for the experience.

    As for searching for answers (yawn, get a book), it’s not a bother to ask a question that’s been answered before, because chances are you will get fresh answers by people that may not have responded. As for the THR veterans, they don’t have to stop and answer questions they feel are redundant, and they certainly should not criticize you for asking any question. Didn’t we all learn in grade school that there are no dumb questions? There certainly are dumb answers though.
