That is craziness. It was just at $161 with 4 minutes when I looked at it. I guess everything gun related has gone completely bonkers!!

Looking at completed listings I see Hornady LNL presses selling for $650.00, common caliber die sets are going for $75 - $100.

Maybe I should sell off my reloading equipment for about twice what I paid then buy new stuff next year when everything settles down.

I am an Ebay seller and deal in reloading equipment frequently. I Have noticed some of the crazy prices obtained in auctions. The people making these high bids ( and paying promptly) have to know what they are doing and that the item can be obtained for less from the manufacturer, I just cant not believe that people that re load are that ill informed, that just does not fit the profile of a reloaded. I believe that some people are getting the things that they need or want from these private sellers (not the manufacturer authorized dealers or directly from the manufacturer) because they do not want the paper trail. They are willing to pay more to avoid it. So I believe that there is a paranoia aspect to these high prices. These people may not live close enough to a brick and mortar establishment to feasibly allow them to do cash deals in person.
