Richard Lee

Lee has a different idea. He's a little like Roy Weatherby a few years ago, a little controversial. He does put out some good equipment. It is quite useable but as you can see from the above not universally considered the best. If you learn reloading with lee equipment and decide you want different equipment later, you haven't handicapped yourself by starting with Lee equipment. If you decide you don't like the press at least then, you will have some experience to go on, to decide what you want to change to. You indicate that you want to reload for benchrest. That is a whole different ballgame than most of us play. If you are into varminting you might be interested in a progressive press where you do all the reloading operations as the press turns but unless you're going to burn lots of ammo, like pisotleros or shotgunners do, the progressive is probably not in your immediate future. If you buy an expensive progressive press and decide you're going to load for benchrest you'll wind up getting a straight press anyway for that, then wish you hadn't wasted the money on a progressive. The kit is a great starter option for someone that isn't really into reloading. Another thing to think about is where you're going to reload. If your wife has anything to say about it, it won't be at the kitchen table. A reloading bench in a secure part of the house where temperature is controlled is something you need to think about. If you live in a small apartment, or are otherwise crowded for space, can make a big difference in what kind of reloading setup you can best employ. If you buy expensive to start, You usually regret it.

There's a paperbound book called, IIRC, ABC'S of handloading, that I learned a lot from; written by (someone will correct me if I'm wrong here) Fred Huntington. Don't know if it's still in print but you can probably find it at a gunshow or on line.
