Im assuming you have a way to trim your brass, as well as chamfer/debur tool, primer pocket brushes lg/sm, primer pocket uniformer lg/sm. Your .223/5.56 dies will be the same, some recommend small base dies for semi autos but i dont use them and have no issues. I generally dont trim pistol cases unless loading for a revolver and need all the same length for crimp purposes. Read alot, watch you tube, ask if you dont know for sure an good luck. Oh and i would highly recommend starting with one caliber until you get the hang of it. Make sure the pistol dies are carbide so you dont have to lube. Tumblers are cheap at harbor freight and corn cob media is cheap at pet stores. If you have any questions feel free to PM me anytime and i will help best i can.
