    how much reloading you anticipate? - it's not cheap $$$ any time and right now just about impossible unless you unload the bucks ....

    Right now, pretty much nationally, primers are impossible to fine. Both locally and on line.

    Agree with Milkman..

    Maybe a Lee reloader kit

    if you are going to load only one caliber...39-30...a lee loader kit and get yourself a plastic mallet....or hard rubber mallet...

    Also agree...with Daca102090 in that primers are difficult to find at present..followed by gunpowder.

    You are coming late to the business.

    As I'm basically in the same boat, I think I'd secure some primers first before wasting the money on other stuff.

    Good luck finding:

    -Powder
    -Primers
    -Projectiles

    I have been reloading for about 2 years now(mostly pistol and 30-06). Since the Kung Flu hit, I have been stingy with my small pistol primers and practice. When the local shops do get them, it's a 300 primer limit. Don't even look at gunjoker prices. You'll s--t a brick.

    I started with a Lee Classic single stage press.
    I now have a rcbs single stage press. I mostly use Lee reloading dies. I find them simple as I do a single stage press. Slower yes, but slow to me is more precise and accurate in every stage of reloading.
    I have dies for both pistol and rifle in 10 different calibers.
    For someone new to reloading a single stage is the way to start and then later that person might consider a progressive.
    Just my 2 cents.
