Did I under pay?

11 partial cans of powder for deer calibers, 2500 primers, a case trimmer, a powder trickler, a kinetic puller, .44 dies, .44 magnum brass, calipers, Lee Auto Prime, reloading manuals X2, shell blocks for holding shells, all for $120, all used. My neighbor is consolidating after her husband went into the assisted living facility and her kids went through and took what they wanted, do I owe my neighbor some more money? Left a bunch off 7MM bullets, 7X57 brass, and 7MM mag brass if anybody wants me to go back, don't have that caliber being reloaded with the immediate family.

    Does that mean opened cans?

    OK then, I had a spurt of guilt there for a second.

    I saw at least $200 worth without the powder. However, I doubt they'd get much more than what you paid unless they sat on it for awhile and I doubt you could have gotten all that for $120 new or in a store. I do think you got a deal but they came out ok too.

    What grain 7mm  bullets? How much 7x57 and how much 7mm Mag brass?
    Last time I bought primers I paid about $30 for 1,000.

    They got some estimates on the equipment, they quoted me a price, they were not sure on the supplies.

    Well she got shed of for her useless clutter. If you see she needs a hand with yard work or snow removal, you can help her out when your able.

    If the 7mm mag brass happens to be unfired I'd be interested.

    No you gave them a fair price for used stuff and took it off their hands.

    Try and verify what that powder is if possible by comparing it visually with the same known powder. Better than nothing, that way.

    Maybe it is just fine, was he a fastidious reloader? Never know who may have poured what in what container, especially after some started getting sick or otherwise losing their sensibilities.

    If both of you are happy with the price then it was the right price.
    I buy a few things from time to time & that's how I like to walk away thinking.

    Don’t you have a 7mm that you can load for?  The 783?

    I felt like I got a good deal and when I looked at the stuff when I got home I thought for a moment I was not being fair, just checking.

    Hush, I do not need to get into another caliber, still have not sorted out the .338 Federal or some .308.

    I assume the powder is identifiable by the cans it's in; no visuals needed (or desired.)  Sounds like a good deal to me.

  • bisleybisley Senior Member Posts: 10,813 Senior Member
    I think it was a fair deal, even without the powder. Personally, I would probably use the powder, if I knew the guy to be a competent hand loader. I can understand why some wouldn't, though.
  • CHIRO1989CHIRO1989 Senior Member Posts: 14,205 Senior Member
    He was a good reloader and shooter, him and his buddies would get up early and take one shot at 700 yds and furthest from the bullseye bought coffee, nobody wanted to buy coffee

    I agree, but, he was slipping away for awhile, I am going to check today

    OK well in my infinite stupidity I was thinking like everything was New. I guess that is a good price for you both. Fair deal. But you didn't answer my question about the 7mm brass and bullets. If somebody else needs the 7 mag brass thats fine because I really have plenty. But I'm about to go to my gunsmith and pick up my latest build, a 7x57 Mauser and I have no brass.

    Good deal. Almost all of my equipment is used. Most reloaders I know take great care of their equipment .
