    was browsing the local want adds and saw a guy selling a lee 4 hole turret press with auto index. I call.. he wants 200$ for it.

    looking at midway.. it's a 112$ kit :)

    what gives? why do people try to sell their stuff for near 2x the cost of new?

    Good question. HEs most likely trying to recover his inital cost and not thinking about the brass, bullets, powder and primers hes already consumed.

    Unless it also includes a bunch of dies and other reloading goodies for that price too. It might still be a bargain depending on what's all included.
    Otherwise...it's caveat emptor. :)

    when I called, all he said was that a set of 270 dies and some brass and bullets were also available to be purchased.. :) he made 50 rounds he says and has no time for it.,

    hmm.. :)

    and now he wants double his investment back.. :)

    all included for 200 aint real bad. But it sounds like hes wanting to nickel and dime.
