Guys, Looking at finally making the jump into handloading and have a few questions. What is going to be my most cost-effective setup to get started with? I realize that if I get to shooting LOTS or with some really oddball cartridges that a progressive would be the best bet, but for now, I'd mainly looking to get into this to a. get setup on a hunting rifle, and b. make the already comparatively cheap .223 even cheaper, and c. start to justify a jump to 6.5 Grendel. Secondly, when it comes to dies and equipment, there are a number of brands out there. Hornady dies, RCBS dies, etc. Are there any particular selling points or are they all essentially equal in quality?
