    Good deals on any of those powders and great on the primers at $20 a K. Can't go wrong on the manuals either at that price even outdated by a year or two as references.

    The Remington primers look high to me but the rest doesn't look bad.

    Only buy unopened cans of powder. Once they're opened, there could be anything in the can. I've heard too many stories of 'I had two cans of powder on the bench, and accidentally dumped the Bullseye from the powder measure into the RL-15 can!' You don't want that experience, trust me!

    I agree good deals on al of the primers except Remington Magnum rifle primers.Also good deals on the powders except no such powder as IMR 4351 probably Imr 4350. Al powders are for reloading rifle loads except H110, it's for magnum pistol loads. Overall good deal.

    Any specific rifle rounds they're used for? I'll only be loading .223 and maybe .300 blk to start with.

    Of the powders listed, probably only RL 15 could be used in those cartridges. The other rifle powders listed are slower burning and more suitable for larger caliber cartridges such as 30-06 or .270win or similar cartidges. Also all of the primers listed are Large rifle or Large rifle magnum. .223 and .300blk use small Rifle primers.

    I should have mentioned it is only a good deal if you have a use for those particular powders and primers.

    SHould have posted this first??? Deals are only deals if you need what ever is being sold. You don't need any of the large primers. The only powders you can use in those two calibers are RL15 & H110, maybe the H380. The case trimmer will be useful. The rest will have to be sold or held until you find a use. So unless he will parce it out, pass.

    I was going to post the same comment earlier. I wouldn't buy ANY of the powder unless it was still sealed. The books might be useful if you don't have duplicates. Other than that, it's just an assortment of stuff for which you might never have a need.

    I have enough costs just buying what I will actually shoot. I certainly wouldn't invest in 'reloading futures'.

    Good points. Eventually i'll do .308, but that's a reloading future.

    Is it an all or nothing deal? Then go ahead & get the large rifle std primers, no need for mag in a 308. The reloading books are useful. I also do not buy partial cans of powder, only sealed. You just have no idea what some boob did with that can marked RL19.:shocked:
