There is a time and place to be frugal , other times its best to just buy once and not cry twice . Just my opinion YMMV

    I agree with all of that, I won't buy used dies anymore, out of three sets, one was crap and I ended up getting a new set to replace it. That's only 33%, and would probably not be the norm, but it was the last set I bought from E-bay, I'm using strictly Lee gear with the exception of two sets (the ones that were okay, but cost as much as new lee dies). $19 - $24 for a brand new set of dies, and knowing what you have aint bad.

    again, if you know someone with a FFL, Or even get one your self, take a couple bucks a set off of that and pretty much everything else. my last order was for a telescoping stock, new forend stock with rails, and a vert forend grip for my AK, best price I could find online was $158 for the lot, I saved more than the $30 curious and Relics liscense fee on that one order. Just an idea. Wish I had that back when I bought my press.

    P.M. me is you have a specific item you would like to know the discout for a dealer.

    If I have to explain it, you wouldn't understand
