Lee .30-30 dies
« on: March 23, 2017, 09:01:47 PM »
Picked up a bunch of reloading stuff at an estate sale recently, and one of the goodies is a 3-die Lee .30-30 reloading die set, which I need like I need another armpit.

Also picked up a 6-cavity Lee .30 caliber bullet mold, which needs handles.  Will gladly trade the dies for a set of handles, or make me an offer that's enough to cover the cost of the handles.

Or, you can just laugh at me for buying reloading crap at an estate sale.

    Umm .  .  . I think a new set of handles from Lee would only run you maybe $20.00 or so.   :shrug    And I would never laugh at you for doing the same thing I do from time to time.  :cool

    cant make fun here either one of my presses and a bunch of my other reloading gear for garage sales and barn sales. 
    IllinoisThere’s a story about a turtle and a scorpion. Scorpion is stranded on a river bank. Turtle sees this and asks Scorpion to get on his back and he’ll take him across the river. Scorpion gets on Turtle’s back and they go into the river. When they’re about halfway across, Scorpion stings Turtle. As Turtle is sinking, knowing they’re both going to die, he asks Scorpion "Why did you sting me, we’re both going to die?" and Scorpion says "It’s not my fault; it’s what I am."

    I was just hoping that I could find someone with a set of handles to spare, and we could trade.  Honestly, I probably don't have $20.00 in the dies, considering what all the other stuff was worth. (Like, 200 .357 cases, 100 .30-30 cases, 100 .45 Colt cases, a six-cavity .30 caliber mold, and the dies.  OTD for $100.)

    Hmm - if you needed and can use the shells, they add value.  I have more of all three than I will ever probably use, and keep adding more as I pick them up at the range.  So I'd probably only be willing to pay for the dies and mold, and I already have .30-30 dies, so that just leaves the mold.

    Speaking of which, what kind of bullets does it drop?  Round nose, spire point?  Short, long?

    Oh, I've got a use for the brass, and the mold is a flat-point, gas-check version that should throw bullets weighing 135 gr., so I'm going to have a use for that as well.  The only thing I don't need are the dies.
