A good manual includes more than load data; it will include a good step-by-step process for reloading safely and consistently. That section alone is worth the price. As far as presses go, cheapest I'd go is the Lee Breech Lock Single Stage. Bolt it to a board that you can C-clamp to a table/tailgate, etc. Way easier than either the Lee Loader or a hand press for not much money invested. Believe me; you'll thank us later! Check out @LoonWulf 's "Porta-loader" thread for some good ideas.
