Wish I'd found this thread earlier. I think you've gotten very sound advice from both the "Single Stage Press" guys as well as the "Dilloneers". I have both, and wouldn't be without both. It is MUCH easier to do load development on a single stage press, as making small, incremental changes in powder charges on the Dillon is a b... booger. Once the sweet spot for a load is found, however, the Dillon can crank 'em out.
A very valuable book is "The ABC's of Reloading" by Dean Grennell. It is not a "recipe book" like the reloading guides you need, but a primer on how to begin, including load planning, the loading process, and other hints and tips. Can't say enough good things about it. Good luck on your new hobby.
