I started reloading about a year ago with the Lee kit and a few extras like case trimming tools, etc.
I hated the Lee scale so found a very good used RCBS scale on ebay for about 1/2 the cost of a new one. I worked out great.
I have all RCBS dies (all purchased on ebay) for about 1/2 the cost of new die sets. The Lee dies are cheaper and a buddy of mine swears by them. Don't count out the 'slightly used' stuff especially in dies.
The $69... for the Lee kit at the pawn shop sounds like a good deal if it is complete. Check out the Lee site for a complete list of what comes in the kit.
Good luck, enjoy your new hobby, and be safe by closely following the instructions in whatever manual you invest in.
