Might be looking at reloading and wondering what single stage equipment / brand to compare . Just saw a ' how to ' using RCBS & seemed straight forward .

Only experience I've had is loading shot shells on a progressive machine .

... I know this is not a great time for obtaining materials but what the heck .. it's a long winter

Lee Challenger is the cheapest and fairly easy to set up and use. Their kits are worth the money for someone who doesn’t know if they will stick with it.

br informed that there are practically no primers of any type on the market now. Some 209 shotgun primers can be found but not much of anything else.

Depends on what you want out of your rifle ammo. For serious precision, get a Forster CoAx. Anything other than that, Rockchucker works ok. Mine is almost 50 years old, all it gets used for is neck expansion.

I bought a Lee Challenger Anniversary kit years ago on Ebay or from Midway and works great for rifle ammo.

If you aren't planning to load rifle rounds larger than about the 223 then the RCBS Jr will work and has a shorter throw which can be nice at times. Mine does not quite have the leverage I want to do 308 and up. RCBS shell holders are the easiest to use that I have found.
Soon you'll be looking to build up your supply of all reloading components.
Best wishes
