Default RCBS rock chucker supreme master reloading kit??

Hey guys. Looking into getting into reloading my own ammo; match ammo in particular. I plan to reloading match .223 and .30-06. What do you guys think about this kit as a starter; RCBS rock chucker supreme master reloading kit? I know it's a basic kit and I will probably need to upgrade in the future but I want something I can kinda dive into without dumping too much money. I know the dies are the most critical part and doing my research on that. Any comments or options are greatly appreciated to help a newbie out. Or is there another kit you recommend? Thanks again. Here is the link:

Go for it. I stated with the same press six month ago reloading 45 ACP. Continued with 40 SW and 9 mm. Next step 30-30 caliber. Learned a lot and happy to be reloading. Yes you can star with the basic tools (best you can afford) and as you mentioned will be upgrades.
I love the RCBS rock chucker. I place primers manually (RCBS universal primer) seems part of the kit.

Search/read threads here about Lee Classic Cast Turret press, with auto Drum, before you drop the hammer. Lots of up sides for a new loader.
Unless you just like green.

Best

The Lee Classic Cast Turret is a good little press, I wouldn't call it a match ammo press. The Rock Chucker is a better option for precision.

My 1978 R/C is still going strong, and the ammo is plenty accurate if you do it correctly. RCBS customer service is second to none.
