    I was going through my reloading bench last night looking for a certain die that I can never seem to find when it occurred to me I've got reloading equipment for calibers I don't even own. I was thinking of posting some in GT's for sale section but its all rifle calibers and I might do better somewhere else. Hence my question: Where do you sell your old stuff?

    seems like I always have another friend getting into reloading, I have sold a couple of bigger ticket items on ebay but dies, tools, components from calibers I no longer reload for etc, I just give to new reloaders.

    Yep, I know I had a couple of members here send me some low cost but essential (and appreciated!) items when I started out.

    freakshow and JJB (RIP Jawja) helped get me up and running (and get the official CRB sticker for my bench).

    I'm holding out, waiting for the anti-gunners to have a reloading equipment buy-back.

    If they'll give you a $100 gift card for an old rusted revolver, just think what a Lee FCD is worth! :supergrin:

    Ebay would be the most obvious but if I understand correctly, you have to set up a paypal account to sell there. I refuse to get involved with paypal. Maybe I'll try craigslist. I'll look through my stuff and see if there is anything a new reloader may find useful and offer (as in "give") it here.

    Really? I've been using Pay pal for years and it works great. I actually don't like to take any other form of payment.

    I still use my "old" stuff. Maybe not as much as the newer stuff, but it still is there for those times when......

    Yeah I hear what your sayin about keep it around just in case... But its takin up room and my wife is sending demo tapes of my reloading area in to the Discovery Channel program "My life with a Hoarder".:whistling: I've got a couple things a new reloader may find useful:

    A Lee Pro-Auto disk powder measure with the adjustable charge bar upgrade and a Frankford Arsenal electric powder trickler. The rest is stuff I'll try and get some money for. I'd prefer the powder measure and the trickler went to someone who is relatively new to handloading. If anybody wants either one send me a PM. I'd like $5.00 to offset some of the shipping charge.

    Unless things have changed, you are not required to have a Paypal account. They are just always pushing it on you. With that being said, I don't do Ebay any longer for the same reason that I don't do Paypal. One, they are both owned by the same entity. Two, the entity that owns them are anti-gun, socialist retards out of California. So you can't support one without supporting the other.

    Why not list it here? I think it is foolish to think that glock guys will not also shoot and reload rifle. =)

    What dies are you thinking of selling?

    Listing it on GT is an option, actually it was my first option, I was just interested in what other sites were good. I have dies and bullets for 25-06. A uniflo powder measure and a couple other odds and ends.

    The anti-gun position of Ebay and PayPal are major reasons I won't use them.

    I've sold quite a bit of reloading related stuff over that last (almost) decade right here on Glock talk.

    Mostly I lose it. Sometimes I even find it again.

    The only thing I had that I didn't need was a 10 pound bottom pour Lee pot, I bought a new 20 pound pot. I gave it to somebody new that wanted to get into casting to help them get started. That's how I got the pot and wanted to pay it forward.
