Redding T 7 is what I use for all my single stage work.

This'll be my first setup, don't want to over complicate with a progressive but something I can load a little faster with once I've learned the ropes.

The T7 is a good one, the Lyman T-Mag is another good one. Not sure which is better.

I use a rock chucker with the hornady qui k change bushing system. Not as good as a turret but it does what I need.

I have a T7 a Forster and a Rockchucker.
I like them all but I must say I have grown very fond of the T7 turret which is my most recent purchase and would get my recommendation

Skip the turret press and get a Forster Co-Ax press. I went from an RCBS turret to a Co-Ax and life is way better!

The turret only holds six dies. So, for me not crimping, that means it holds dies for three rifles. Trouble is I load for .223, .22-250, .243, 6.5 Creedmoor, 7mm-08, .308, 7 Rem Mag, and .300 Win Mag. That totals to 16 dies. I can go from sizing .22-250 to seating 7 Rem Mag, to decapping .243 by just slipping one die out and putting the next one in in three seconds. Universal shell holder means I don't have to switch that out either. It has been a game changer for me.

I like the T-7 also. One thing I don't like is when you change heads, the little ball bearing on the spring for the indent, will get away pretty quick for me.

I have an older Rockchucker and a Lee Classic Turret. I love the Lee for pistol and 556 and lately I have been loading a lot of .243, 308 and 3006 on it. I pull the index rod and use it like a single stage when loading rifle ammo. I love the fact that I have a turret ready for nearly everything I load. In a matter of seconds I can switch calibers . The Rockchucker has been retired to primer pocket swaging. Give the Lee Classic Turret a look.

I had a Lee press as well. I made a lot of ammo with it that would shoot one hole groups.
Don't NEED to spend more to make good ammo.
I started with this setup:

Thanks ccoker, I'm beginning to question if I currently shoot enough to concern myself with a turret press, although I'd like to load quantities in 223. But I know I'll probably shoot quite a bit more once I start reloading. I like the idea of a kit because it seems it gives me everything I'll need to get started. It's a little overwhelming trying to piece together and read all the reviews.
