Reloading Gear On Craigslist
« on: July 30, 2018, 06:35:04 PM »
I don't see a lot of reloading stuff on Craigslist here locally but last week came across this one:

https://peoria.craigslist.org/spo/d/reloaders-and-equipment-make/6652975860.html

Have swapped messages with the seller - supposedly selling for an older gentleman, doesn't know a lot about it himself. Tried to get a detailed list or a rough idea of price, haven't gotten very far, he wants me to just come and look at it. I may go ahead and do that but sellers like that drive me crazy.  Tried to force him into a price by asking if $400 would be in the ballpark (yeah I know), he claims it's probably $3000 worth of stuff.  Well yeah, retail maybe, but most humans aren't going to give you anything close to that or even half in my opinion unless they have a convenient means to break it all down & sell to recover the investment (I don't have the time or patience for that now).  At the moment he doesn't want to break it apart, but let me know if you see anything in the photos that you might have a specific desire to have as I'm in the vicinity - I don't see anything really unique in the pile myself.

Maybe I should buy the pile & have the first annual "TH reloading gadget garage sale"?

Our local Craigslist doesn't have much reloading stuff either.  I check it quite often.  I don't find much bullet casting stuff either.

it sounds odd he doesn't have a breakdown. I don't trust that at all. I guess that's why I haven't done craigslist

good luck. it could be a steal

Judging by the photos in my opinion your offer is a reasonable one. take 4 hundred dollar bills and see what happens. I' maybe go to 5 but that's it. Couldn't see what was in the assortment of dies. Looks like there's even shot shotgun stuff there. Happy hunting Mad.

I don't reload so I have no opinion in the matter.  Best of luck with it.

I agree with Dutch, No more than 5, I didn't even see any scales, calipers, powder, bullets and it appears to only be a couple sets of dies. Yes there are a couple of shotgun presses there also.

If you got it all for 400, you could possible recoup most of that by reselling items individually if you had the time to go through it all
and price accordingly.

BTW I just got a 5 stage 12 gage shotgun press a couple weeks ago for $20.00 if that will help you out at all.  ##$%#1118

There ae a couple of lubesizers in there, and there was a box with what appears to be sizer dies.  I also spotted a bullet mold. Used Lyman molds easily go for $40 or more.

Thanks for the feedback guys - was hoping to get down there this evening to check it out but schedule didn't work.  Will still try, more so out of curiosity than anything else.

I dont trust Craigslist. Read too many scary stories about buyers getting ripped off. I hope you interaction works out.

Thanks Flint - the stuff is still there for sale.  The guy selling it just isn't using his head.  I haven't stopped by to look (yet), have emailed him a couple times since to see if they're willing to split it up or at least shoot me a price for the pile, he just keeps telling me I need to go look at it.  If he's not that motivated to put some effort into it to sell it, then I'm not that motivated to go look (of course I don't really need any of it at this point, but it's always tempting).
