I concur, the RCBS Rockchucker Supreme Kit is a good place to start. Good equipment and good value. Add a good digital vernier caliper.Nothing wrong with Lee dies. If you get into some precision rifle shooting in the future, you may want Redding or Forster. You mention 223, you should have a tool to measure shoulder setback. When I started reloading pretty much all factory ammo was crap, factory ammo today is much better. As above, read several of the newest manuals, Hornady, Speer, Nosler, Sierra, they're all good. Lee manual taxed my ADD, too many chapters.
