While there's nothing wrong with a progressive press (love my Dillon blue), for a new reloader, I strongly recommend starting out with a single-stage.

After selling my old Rock-Chucker to a friend who was starting out, I looked around at single-stages, and I really like the Lee Classic Cast. It has an adjustable and reversible handle, big enough window for 50-cal. (if you ever get one...), plenty strong enough, through-ram spent-primer catcher, and two-piece ram with removable head which gives all kinds of interesting flexibility (like swaging jacketed bullets). It's around $70 or $80 IIRC, and I think there's a kit available, based on the Classic Cast.
