I seriously considered getting into reloading. The problem with it right now is that unless you are already set-up and have all the stuff you need, it is cost prohibitive. Once prices come down again, I'll look into it again.

as mentioned, unless you have a ton of cash to drop on a big ole progressive setup or at least a turret, reloading anything you shoot high volumes of (that isnt normally super expensive) really isnt worth it.

On a single stage, you arent going to crank out 1000 rounds of 9mm and save any money, especially if you are looking at the time involved.

I've got an old rifle that rounds are very expensive for and Iíve been thing about getting a basic reloading setup just to make rounds for it. Can you guys point me to a good starting place for learning about reloading?

Rcbs rock chucker. It's single stage. You'll need dies, powder measure, scale, reloading manual, bullets, brass, powder, primers, brass tumbler, a SOLID, level bench to mount everything to, and lots of patience.

I was looking at the lee progressive 1000 press it comes with the dies for one caliber I found it for under $200 ive looked at the scales and tumblers then priced the bullets, powder, and primers the initial start up cost is a lot but after you have the tools the cost goes down
I think it was about half the cost when you buy enough for 1000 rounds or more

From what im seeing on reloading if you dont shoot a lot it might not be worth it I have been going out almost every weekend and shooting around 200 rounds as long as I can find the ammo to replace it I have a hard time finding 45 so mostly been shooting 40
I have found some 45 but $50 for a box of 50 is way high

Progressives are worth it if you are going through a ton of rounds. I'm guessing you are a glock guy and should have no problem shooting lead slugs. If by chance you are a 1911 owner I've found them to be much more picky when reloading.
For some people they find reloading more enjoyable then shooting. My dad is one of these people and he uses it as a therapeutic stress reliever. The repetition and exactness of process ending with perfect loads really relaxes him. If you are like me you only do it out of necessity and it will get boring real fast. I would suggest if serious finding someone with the set up you would like to have and load a couple hundred and see how you like it.

A buddy of mine got the hornady lock n load system. He seems to love it, and it's not terribly expensive. Wait for them to offer their rebates. I use a dillon 550b, and am somewhat satisfied with it. I get inconsistent powder charges. Don't know if its me, or the loader. The RCBS ones aren't terribly expensive and are accurate. Any way you go, it's going to consume a lot of time.

I do have a few glocks but to shoot lead rounds I would need an aftermarket barrel like the wolf barrel
There is a few 1911's ive had my eye on for a while though
I like the glock for one I can get any part for it alot of the parts are interchangeable and being able to pull it apart and install a trigger in less then 10min is great

But if I buy a good 1911 and keep it clean it would be a good gun
I also shoot my rugers and my smith&wesson
I am selling one of my rugers though once it sells I was thinking of getting a sig
