10-4, I'm just going off Youtube Tutorials...

That is how I started too.
If I where to start all over again I would start with these and never look back.

-Get stainless media and a rock tumbler for cleaning your brass
-get this powder measure and google how to fix it for more accurate results: http://www.cabelas.com/product/rcbs...11&categoryIds=104792580|104761080|544895280|

-If you plan on reloading more than one caliber get a Forster Co-Ax press.

Those three things will cut your reloading time/setup down a huge amount. The difference between spending an hour setting up your powder measure vs 5 minutes. Or an hour dialing in your seating die vs 5 minutes etc. If you tumble your brass in walnut media it will come out very dusty and you have to spend the time to wipe down each piece with a rag vs the stainless works better and you leave it in the sun or toss it on the stove for a few minutes to dry.

Yikes that powder measure is pricey! More $ than my press.....

I don't want to a progressive reloader and one by one sounds brutal too., so I opted for a RCBS Turret press. That way I just buy a turret and set up the next caliber if the Turret I have is full. But I should be able to get two calibers out of one turret. It makes sense in my head....

I haven't picked up a powder measure yet, if I go with your suggestion it might be a minute lol.

Turret is great! much better then a single. The part that takes the longest is setting everything up for each caliber and constantly checking tolerances.
Order the rcbs from Cabelas at 319 shipped and then send in for the 50$ rebate. takes about 4 months to get the rebate though.
