Here is my advice for what it is worth. First, take half of that thousand dollars and put it into a retirement account (IRA). Second, with the money left buy a Dillon 550B, several extra tool heads and Lee dies for every caliber you intend to reload. Make sure you get the carbide dies for all calibers available. Also, get the factory taper dies for all of the auto pistol you intend to reload and let the seating die just seat the bullet and size it with the sizing die. Pay particular attention to the cartridge dimensions as auto pistols headspace on the sides of the round.

Then you will need a good balance beam scale (a digital is simply not necessary), a set of calipers, a good loading manual (Lyman is excellent), and a pair of safety glasses.
