I've not "rolled my own" ammo ever to date, and although I've occasional thought about over the last 3 decades, the "pandemic" and the '60's riots 2.0 have made me think it's high time to get into it (as I'm sure many of you are in the same boat). Not just for potential cost saving, but for flat out availability?! Looked at some of the posts in the reloading section and it seems that the Lyman Reloading and Lee books may be the one(s) to get. Some of the "beginner's" links that various people suggested I can't get to (errors?). My question is: what brands of reloading equipment do you all recommend for the beginner, considering value (nice balance of quality/price)? Don't need bells and whistles, also not "junk". Would you recommend all the equipment be of the same manufacturer or does that really matter? Are some brands significantly easier to use than others? I'm looking at 9mm (at least to start out with). Had another burning question, and forgot what it was(?). Not a big fan of The Rolling Stones, but they got one thing right "What a drag it is, getting old"
