Choosing an Entry Level Reloading Press + Book
I'm new to reloading and am looking for a starter kit. Despite what I've read on some forums, the Lee kit seems to be highly rated as an entry-level, starter kit. For the price, you get a lot of bang for your buck (no pun intended).
I plan on reloading some 9mm Luger and .38 Special to start. Seems like I could buy one of these kits, the appropriate shell holders/dies, and a few other things (primers, brass, calipers, and power too) and I'd be set.
Any thoughts on why you would choose one kit over the other? I read that one of them has a hand primer and the other one is built in. Is it just a matter of preference?

For the book, should I get the Lyman or ABC's of Reloading?
