I'm going to defer any recomendations to those that know better.

I don't shoot as much as I would like, but was thinking about getting into reloading a few years ago with a buddy of mine.

He bought one of those Lee 'Anniversary Kits' for a simple single stage press. Somewhere along the line he had also picked up a Lee Turret press. We had started to acumulate the basics for getting started. He has a couple of reloading manuals (Sierra 3rd, and Lyman 47th) I got the single caliber Loadbooks, 9mm, .38 Spl/.357 Mag, and .44 Spl/Mag Lee carbide dies, and a tmmbler from Midway.

The problem is, we never did anything with it! He never got around to building a reloading station at his place, then he drifted away from the sport entirely. I ended up buying his 'share' of the reloading equipment and supplies, still new in the box, for just $100, but I too have not done anything with it yet.

Do you recommend that I have someone help me get started? I'm hesitant to do so on my own. I'm afraid that I'll screw something up. I have lots of questions as well. Should I seat and crimp in two different operations as some suggest or do I frustrate myself trying to do both at once. Should I start with the single stage press or start with the Turret press. ....Or should I scrap all of the Lee presses because it seems like no one in these forums holds them in much regard.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!
