and I know there will be a million opinions about what is best. I have never reloaded any ammo so I will be starting from scratch and want to reload a few different rounds. I have read some posts on here and will definitely pick up a couple of books before I buy any equipment. What type of equipment will I need to get started? I would like to reload 9mm and 30-06 for sure since that is what I shoot the most, besides .22. Probably .38 and 357 down the road. I will probably lean towards a more inexpensive item to get started rather than buying top of the line stuff. I can afford virtually anything but it is just my nature to start off slow and then move to better equipment later. I call it frugal and my wife calls it cheap. I do it with guns, fishing rods, tractors, and lawn mowers but NEVER with toilet paper.
