You need to shop around more or ask for a free tube of KY with those prices. Holy smokes!!!!!!!
free range brass= 12c each
And to the OP... Loading rifle is no child's play. Go load with an old pro for a day and ask lots of questions before you buy.

you should trim and debur after sizing and sizing requires lube i use the petroleum jelly
and i often have to ream and chamfer the primer pockets
then after all that sometimes i run into a pocket that is too loose to hold a primer so after all that work i have to chuck that case and 9 times out of 10 it was a FC case
