If you want quality, reliability, and quite possibly the best CS in the industry, start with a Dillon 550. True, they are more expensive, you can expect to drop about $500 for the press ready to go, but it's versatility and quality are unmatched. Besides, if you find that reloading is not your gig, it will hold probably 90% of its value. And, if you keep it, you have a great "do everything" press.

I have a Dillon 550, 650, and 1050, and I still use the hell out of the 550. The other presses are great for bulk loading, but if you only need 25-100 rounds for hunting, match grade, or load development, the 550 again, it's hard to beat for ease of setup and repeatability.
