If you want to start off minimal, you can get by with a single stage press (under 100), scale (35), reloading manual (35), die set (30-50 for each different caliber), lube pad if you go with non-carbide dies (10), funnel (5), and shell holder (20 for a set).

You will also need powder (~15-20/pound), but you will usually want to experiment with a couple different types; primers (3-4 per hundred); and bullets (price varies greatly depending upon the caliber) and again you will want to experiment with different weights and types. This assumes you have been keeping your fired brass and don't need to buy any.

That would be your absolute minimum. To upgrade, a progressive press that works much faster will be your biggest expense and there are a lot of other doodads that will make it much easier to add on (later if you want).
