Don’t under estimate the cost of resizers. From what I’ve found, they cost $100+. It’s importanat on rifle rounds to resize the brass correctly. Hand gun calibers don’t need to worry too much for this.

you will also need a good scale to weigh your powder as well. I use a cheap digital scale for my pistol rounds as I’m using a volume powder dispenser, and is not as accurate as a weight based scale.
A tumbler to help clean brass?
Maybe a sonic cleaner to wash casing?
A single stage press can do the reload, imo, as you won’t be shooting too many rounds.

You mean trimmer?  Sizing die's aren't $100+ unless you get carbide, which is a waste for rifle since you need to lube the cases regardless of steel or carbide.
