    I have a lee progressive press with .223 dies, has everything but brass/bullet feeders. Need to make some room, $100 takes it.

    Yep, its everything you need, its just not 100% "automated" without the bullet or brass feeders. It might need a little tinkering, since I never got it to work 100% properly.

    it may not be the smartest for me as my first then, ya think? When you say not working 100%, what does that mean?

    Yeah, for your first I would suggest going with a single stage press for simplicity. The only problem I had with it was the primer feed not working all of the time.

    Hey,don't let that scare you away,they are good presses with inexpensive parts avail.
    The tweeks to make them work correctly are all over the net,for the price it is a decent machine.
    You will still need a scale plus a few odds and ends,but nothing too expensive.
