I have recently gotten into reloading and while I am not experienced enough to be an "expert" I can pass on what little I have learned.
Buy the most best reloading press for the money. For me, it was the Dillon 550B press that is multi-stage and loads both rifle and pistol. If you go to Brian Enos - Competition Shooting Books, Slide-Glide, DVDs & Reloading
, you can price one. Expect to spend around $900 for the press and the "necessary" tools to go with it, i.e. digital caliper, scale, case cleaner, etc.
If this is more than you can spend, go to Cheaper Than Dirt - America's Ultimate Shooting Sports Discounter
and price some of their presses.
With my press came a DVD that showed the operation of putting the whole thing together and successfully loading multiple rounds. A huge plus is that Dillon that exceptional customer service and provides all of their presses with a lifetime guarantee.
After purchasing the press and tools, expect to spend another $250-500 buying the components you'll need: bullets, cases, powder and primers..
All in all, you'll have to make a large investment up front but it will be worth it.
