FS in TX: FYI - Reloading materials

Post by FWiedner »

My next door neighbor inherited some reloading materials a few years back that he's looking to remove from his accumulation of goods. I'm not making any money off of the stuff, I'm just putting it out there in case anyone else is interested.

This is for the most part not a sale, most of the stuff is giveaway. I'll provide a bit more detail on that in a minute.

.38 Super
Thousands of pieces of brass both once fired and new. Thousands of bullets both lead and jacketed. Free.

.45 Colt
Brass, bullets. Free.

I believe I saw some .40S&W and some 10mm stuff in there. Free.

I'm going to snatch up the .45ACP materials.

There's an old Dillon press, my neighbor told me it's a 550. There's a basket full of parts to go with it, for who knows what. I won't claim to know what it's operational status is, but it's been collecting dust for about 10 years. I believe that Dillon does a lifetime warranty so if it's broken there's a possibility you can get them to rebuild it under warranty. My neighbor wants me to sell it if I'm not going to use it and split the take. My plan is to just give him anything that's collected. There are probably dies in the pile for all of the calibers mentioned above. I thought maybe they should stay with the press. I don't do Dillon, but maybe you do. Make an offer.

There are some other tools in the pile, but without spending more time, most looked like throw-away.

I don't currently have a complete inventory of the materials. If you're interested in anything mentioned above let me know and I'll put something together. On the stuff listed as free, if you want it, you pay shipping and it's yours.

Let me know if you have any interest.

PM me your address and please be patient while I figure out what parts belong to it.

I'll get a count for you.

Just eyeballing... There's a 2 gallon bucket of new brass that's 2/3 full.

It will take me a day or two to go through all of the bullets, so... standy by.

I'm interested in the 45 Colt components if there is any left.
I'm willing to pay a fair price.

I will take the .40 and 10mm items. I have and load for both.

PM me your address. If we can find time where we are both free, I will come pick it up. I know that we are not all that far from each other.

Hi guys.

Sorry for the delay on this stuff, but I am a working guy and have been working on sorting through this stuff in increments when I've got the time.

My focus right now is on identifying what are usable materials and what are not.

I'll get back to each of you that have expressed interest within the next several days.

I think I can estimate the weight of 3000 .38 165gr RN lead bullets, the problem is finding a stout enough container to ship them in.

There's a bucket of new un-primed .38 Super brass that looks like there are maybe 1000 pieces, but I have no plan to count them.

Looks like there are a couple thousand pieces of fired .38 Super brass. I am not going to clean or de-cap them. Recycler?

There's also a bucket of (I'm guessing) maybe 500 new unprimed .45 Colt brass. The stuff on top is a bit oxidized but it's still new brass.

There is a box of what started as 2000 185gr .452 JHP bullets that is gonna give me a hernia... :?

I build a wooden box (screws,not nails) that fits inside a USPS flat rate box. I think they limit it to 50 or 70 lbs now, instead of "if it fits it ships."

Thanks Vance.

Working on that approach, but I'm no carpenter... :oops:

Update:

Not that there is anything speedy about my service on this issue, but I've hit a speed bump.

Apparently the proprietor of my local UPS store has a social conscience, and doesn't ship or deal with "gun parts".

After extended explanation, inspection to demonstrate that there are no "gun parts" involved, no active propellants, explosives, or live ammunition, he still said "No". Because "Guns".

Wouldn't even weigh the stuff or estimate shipping costs.

So... Please bear with me as I roll over this speed bump to another carrier.

What a tool. Hopefully he has seen the last of your business and you have other choices in the area. I always just list things as "parts"; I've never been questioned.

I quit dealing with UPS long ago. I use the USPS for all my shipping now. The folks at my office help me find the cheapest way to ship and are fine shipping my muzzleloaders. Might I suggest using a USPS flat rate box for shipping bullets and use a lot of packaging tape to keep them together. Guys do it all the time to ship lead.
