I get this and started gathering things slowly over the years garage sales and flea markets thrift stores, i have several boxes of Alcan Bluestreak fiber and cork wads, Alcan overshot cards and nitrowads, I picked up for free at a local church owned thrift shot they refuse to sell anything gun related, with the exception of hunting clothing. i recently( summer 2019) picked up a MEC Versamec press for $15 at a garage sale. I have several vintage roll crimpers and such. To be honest my favorite press to reload on is my Lee load all junior. I have a Mec 600 jr specifically set up for .410 which i won on auction for $125 came with tons of extras including dies for 16, 20 and 12 gauge. but i had the money back then before i was forced to retire due to health.For many, indeed most, there's a time element involved. We didn't go out and stock up all at once. Good grief, who could unless you were a millionaire and especially at today's prices? It's a life time's accumulation. A little here, a little there, a deal or two at past gun shows, friends or family who decided to stop loading, others who knew we loaded and told someone we might be interested in buying their accumulation, or part of it and, estate sales. I have 2 or maybe 3 pieces of loading equipment I bought new. The sizer/luber I use most is from the 1940's or maybe 30's. My old Belding & Mull powder measure is from the 30's and still more accurate than any RCBS, Lyman and definitely Lee I've ever used. Some of the powders I have and use haven't been available in years and carry price tags of $8.00 to $12.00. The last lead I paid for was 20 cents a pound. I understand if one buys a hard alloy today, it's $2.00 a lb. I finally used up the last of my Winchester LP primers in the red and yellow boxes, priced at 68 or 78 cents a hundred, and those haven't been made since the 70's I think. I think I have a few cans of black powder that still say Gerhardt-Owen....now known as GOEX and one that says DuPont...and I don't remember when DuPont got out of the BP making business. According to your profile I'd already been loading for 10 years when you were born. That isn't some kind of a....an....a pointed comment, just an observation that time is on the side of a lot of guys...not mine so much anymore.
