    Id wait for second hand deals.... probably going to be a few guys spitting the dummy and quitting if the 'book burning' I mean 'semi banning' goes ahead.
    Use enough gun

    You can load with a Lee Loader, projectiles, powder and primers.
    Slow, but it’ll work.
    He nui to ngaromanga, he iti to putanga.

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    I started with a lee loader and a set of scales, just using the dipper might be a bit sketchy, it only does 1 calibre and is a bit slow but it's good for working out how it all works and only costs $100.
    Other than that lee do some basic kits for around $300 plus $80 for dies, then all the consumables primers powder and bullets I would allow another $200-$250 but that would make 100 rounds and still have some powder left over.

    The Lee kits are great, providing you take the scales and throw them as far away as possible.

    Buy a Lee kit, and some decent rcbs scales and you'll be away laughing.

    Although please remember, loading ammo requires non-negotiable amounts of patience and attention to detail!

    Completely depends on what quality you want to buy and how much you want to spend.
