I know this sounds odd, but I started on a Hand Press and...still use it. Thousands of 9mm, 45, x39, '06 and 223.
If you just want to load a couple hundred 45's the Hand Press is perfect for that. Plus it allows you to do the work watching TV, once you get the gist of things. Decap, resize, prime etc.
45 has to be the easiest caliber to load for.
