has it about right. The costs add up eventually, but the hardware seems to be your concern. 1K Gets you a good start, ad it will go from there.
I started reloading to stock up on the cheap, and keep shooting. My state going all commie means ammo may be an issue soon. Glad I started when I did. Now that I have done a bit, fine tuning loads (handloading vs reloading) is becoming a fun hobby. As such I am looking into a single stage press. I have the Hornady AP progressive and love it. Not sure about other brands, but every time I buy something from Hornady that isn't components, it seems to come with "free" bullets.

For me, handloading is as much fun as shooting. So is casting for that matter. Saving money is just a good benefit I get from it. And believe me, if you cast your own, youíll save tons. A box of 50 .45ís, .38ís, 40ís, ..... cost me about $3.00 ( I get my lead free). And itís a blast to do !! Talk about a win-win !!

You are right...casting REALLY puts the topping on reloading. Being able to cast bullets to cover everything from squirrels to elephants is as good as it gets. And, there is nothing that will teach you more about guns and shooting than reloading and casting bullets.

Where do you find this used equipment?

Craigslist, armslist, yard sales, sometimes forums.

I've been reloading since about 1980. Looking for a turret press.
