GT lacks a classified sub-forum for reloading/casting related ads.

    I think GT needs a separate buy/sell sub-forum for all the reloading / casting ads.

    At the moment, the only place to buy/sell reloading stuff is under "gun parts & accessories" and it is 99.99% flooded with, well, gun parts & accessories. It is a pain to scroll through 10 pages of "G17 mags for sale" only to see one or two reloading related ads.

    I think it makes sense to have a separate classified sub-forum as GT has a fairly large community of reloaders compared to other websites.

    What do y'all think?

    I think you answered your own question. As a reloader, I'd love to see it. Why create a forum like that, that is probably only going to have 4-5 ads a month?

    Supply and demand unfortunately.
     


  3. I would love to see that addition. I actually visit a couple other forms only for their reloading classifieds.

    Maybe the lack of exposure is the cause for lack of interests. I would bet many even realize that there is a classified section for reloading ads. Heck, even the forum doesn't mention reloading stuff.

    I've been working with Eric on the matter on and off. In the past, the mods have allowed limited sales here, but since the new system it's been disallowed (which is why my brass sale I had several weeks ago is gone).

    It would be useful. I too am not fond of going through "gun accessories" (which reloading equipment is not IMO but it is gun related) for pages and pages just to pick out the reloading stuff. The "free to a good home" section isn't exactly a high traffic section and it still exists.

    Maybe combine a ammo and reloading section. Or at least give a reloading section a try for 6 months and if it doesn't pan out axe it.:dunno:

    I agree it would be nice to have a section specific to reloading / casting. In the meantime, use the search feature that is available. That's what I do...
