i started reloading in 1970 and the first thing i would buy is a reloading guide (or several different guides). look for some of the older guides, they got some great information in them. read all you can about reloading before you buy any equipment. see if any of your friends reload, ask them to watch them reload some. when you get ready to buy equipment start out small. look on ebay for a used single stage press and used dies, etc.... later on you can move up to the kits. you can made some of the best ammo from a old single stage press. i still use three old 1970 single stage presses and a 1980 dillon 550 to do my reloading.
