Default OT Getting rid of some reloading equipment

I'm trying to get rid of a bunch of my older reloading stuff to upgrade to a Dillon 1050. PM me if interested.

I have a brand new (never used) Dillon 550b, a refurbished (by Dillon) 550b, a used 550b with strong mount and roller handle, and a Hornady Projector. I also have a bunch of Dillon and RCBS die sets, an RCBS trimmer, and some tumblers and other random reloading stuff. I have pictures of everything also.

I hope this is ok to post, I've seen some pretty random OT posts in the offseason.

I started to write up a description of these, but that's what these guys get paid to do.

We reload 45 ACP, 223, 9mm, and 40. We shoot competition through USPSA, so with competitions and practice we go through a ton of ammo.

Absolutely not, why would you shoot someone that requires tracing? If you shoot someone in self defense you own up to shooting someone. Otherwise you're just murdering someone...not cool.

Brand new 500b: 360

Used 550b with strong mount and roller handle: 380 (the mount and handle are pretty pricey brand new)

Refurbished 550b w/cover: 350

Hornady Projector: 225

RCBS Trimmer with base plate and trim pro 3 way cutter for 223: 100

Of course you'll have to pay shipping on these also, unless you're in the Rolla or Springfield area of Missouri. The Dillon presses come with one caliber conversion of your choice.

Well if you're interested in starting to reload, these are actually a pretty cool way to start. A lot of people start reloading on a single stage press, which SUCKS. Basically, you have to run all of your brass/ammo through the press for each stage of the process. So you'd decap all your brass, then change the tool head and run it through to resize it all, change the tool head and run it all through to seat the primer, so on and so forth until you get it done. With the Dillon's having 4 stages, you run it through the press once and its done, depending on what you want to do.

It's a little technical at the beginning, but it saves a ton of money on ammo. I pay roughly half of retail price for my ammunition. As much as I shoot, the $400 initial investment was paid off in absolutely no time.
