I use lee dies for about 75% of my calibers, load 20 or so. They make good dies.
I don't recommend a turret or anything other than a single stage press for new loaders. Just making safe ammo can be hard enough if you have distractions (kids/dogs/etc), its a lot easier to mess up the more you have going on. 1 piece that had a low/no powder charge means at best unloading every round loaded to check. At worst you don't pay attention and get a barrel obstruction.
You don't need flash hole cleaners, trimmers, headspace guages, powder trickler etc. You don't even need a scale. Billions of rounds have been loaded with nothing more than dippers, but I would still use a scale.
If you get to the point you're fine tuning a load, digital scales and all kinds of doo-dads can be added. But for ammo that's just as good as most shelf ammo they're not needed.
You can use a lube pad and roll each case but I like the baggie method better.
So for needs, press, dies, dipper/scale, case lube, components.
