Help a Newb Handloader out.

So, one of the things I'm thinking of getting into after christmas is handloading rifle cartridges. I'm wondering if anyone on PBF has any experience with this, because I'm more or less clueless as to where to start.

I load both pistol and rifle cartridges, what part of the process did you have questions about?

I need recommendations on good equipment for loading .270 Win, 7mm Rem Mag, and .338 Win shells. Speed isn't a factor, I'm looking to close my groups up. I've been doing some research on the actual process of handloading and I seem to understand it pretty well, I just can't find any good buying guides for someone with a $400 budget.

Also If you are reloading more than one caliber I would get a extra turret for each set of dies so you don't have to reset them each time you use it , they are cheap and makes it easier.

Thanks ShepardD, that's more or less what I was looking for.

I highly recommend Dillon reloading products. I don't know if they have any presses in your price range, but their customer service is second to none.

The cheapest Dillon Press is around $300, the Square Deal B. not counting toolhead, powder measure, mount, dies, bullet tray. It cannot load rifle rounds, only pistol rounds.
The cheapest Dillon Press to reload rifle ammo is the RL550B and that is around $525.
