If you only plan on occasional shooting and maybe just for hunting, you can get by with the hand press............Personally, some type of bench press, would be a better plan. Lee makes some pretty cheap stuff that will work well for the casual shooter. leeprecision.com/reloading-presses/single-stage/ Something like the Breechlock Challenger Press...........It has more mechanical advantage than the hand press or the breech lock press.
I use one for most all smooth forming. I don’t have the luxury of being able to set up a press near my shooting location at the range. If you have a way to set up a bench mounted press then by all means use one. If you don’t have the luxury of that I don’t think you will be unhappy with a hand press. I do agree with Richard but some people use less bullets in a year than Richard shoots in a day. At the end of the day you need to decide what style fits your needs the best.
