I'm a beginner. I have ordered a Lee Classic Turret Press with dies for 8 calibers, etc. I went to an expert's home and loaded some cartridges on a single station press. Good introduction. He's a city police officer and his dad was a count deputy sheriff. They were stern taskmasters and made sure I followed the protocols.
From what I've read on the forums and elsewhere a progressive is NOT recommended to start but it can be done if you are very patient and careful. Easy to screw up on a progressive. THE BIG DEAL IS A DOUBLE CHARGE OF POWDER.
The Dillon 650 is probably the best progressive from what I hear but, of course, everyone thinks the brand they own is the best.
Rule one-- be safe!
ZOOM 2X, pronounced "ZOOM ZOOM", is the tag on my supercharged, etc. Miata.
