I would think twice before I sold any of my grandfather's shooting stuff. Is there another shooter in your family who would want it?

Sounds to me like It's the dies for your Grandfathers weapons. You don't need them now however when you get the guns, in the distant future you will. Unless you're pressed for space they are worth keeping.

Post it all up on eBay with a starting price of $1.00 and no reserve for a week. You'll get far more than a buck for it, but if you start off asking too much, you're not going to get anything. I did that with a car I was selling and got >$10,000 for it. You want to sell the reloading equipment en masse, understandable, but someone will gobble it up and parcel it out individually. Easy for you, profitable for the buyer. It's a win/win.

I am not a huge fan of ebay.I was just looking for a round about number that this stuff would be worth.Id rather sell it to someone here and give them a really good deal then go through the headache.making alot of money on this is not my concern.making this a trouble free experience and hopefully this stuff going to a good home is what im looking to do.Ill repost in the buy sell trade.

....or admin could this be moved?

Where are you located in California? If you really would just like to store a box of reloading stuff for a while I may be able to help you out.

Would depend on condition. Also on if the pistol sizing dies are carbide or not.

Looking a what you listed, I can not imagine the box to store it in would be all that big.
When the day comes that you get you grandpas collection of firearms, replacement cost of the dies are gonna be a killer and once you go to purchase ammo for the collection, you will truley miss the dies!
Anyway you can relist the items in a top to bottom list, I get lost reading your post. Also any part numbers on the boxes would be helpful.
And note any surface rust etc.
I would strongy urge you to reconsider selling, other wise... I am interested even though I have most of what listed, having more than one is a plus when staring at a 1,000 empty shells!
