Thinking of getting this kit to get into reloading. Free die set after rebate. Good deal?

If you’ve compared single stage, turret, and progressive, as well as compared RCBS to hornady, lee, etc., and decided that is the press kit you want, it’s a lot cheaper from Sportsmans Warehouse:

Should I get the kit, or [just get the press](https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1013033452?pid=513567)?

Looks pretty reasonable to me.

You need just about all that stuff, so you can open 1 box or ten, but you’re going to end up buying it all.

No mention of what you want/plan to reload.
I see nothing with this choice is that is what you want to get and it will meet your current and hopefully future needs.
There are many options and you could get a multi station/turret and/or auto indexing press for the same price or less.
It really depends on the ammo you want to make, and the quantity you intend on cranking out.
For volume, a multi-stage press is something you should really look at, it allows for all the dies to be installed at once, and it does increase the reloading rate.
I have single stage presses, and they have become specialty tools (deprime & resize) once I got my multi-stage press. I only kind of wish I got one with 5 stages and auto-indexing, but even so I’m really happy with what I got.
Also don’t forget that you will need case prep tools/equipment unless you are only planning on buying prepped cases (more costly). Cases should be cleaned before reloading, especially if you are using range pickup or unprocessed “once fired” brass.

Huh, I’m normally suspicious of kits but they didn’t cheap out on the parts on this one. The scale is nice, they include the good hand priming tool, and I don’t have any experience with the powder measure but it seems quality. And of course the press itself is really one of the best you can buy.

This it the same kit that I started on about 4 years ago and it is very good. I still use most of it. I’d suggest finding some way to 3D print or buy the printed improved spent primer tray thing that sends them down a tube. The spent primer situation with this press can be extremely annoying.
