Thinking of selling loadmaster opinions?!

How much do y'all think I could get for a lee loadmaster in .40S&W it's got the case collater setup with extra case tubes. I've got the lee factory crimp die as well as the universal decapping die for this press. It's in great shape and just over a year old loaded less that 5000 rounds.

It's not up for sale yet. It'll be 2 months before I'm back to it. But what sounds right to you?

Well, $50 sounds right, but I don't think that will fly.

Let's see, Midway's got them for $245. Down from that price, based on usage and condition. As described, I think I'd start at $200, and look to sell the decapper and FCD separately (if at all).

---edit to add---

Not looking to buy, myself, right now, just giving advice on what I think you should be asking.

Ebay is an alternate universe for handloading gear, in my experience. Every single time I've elected to give up 30 minutes of my life to search up some handloading ANYTHING on Ebay, all I ever find is new stuff at lousy prices or used stuff that sells for more money than NEW stuff! I am not kidding.

I think it must be -the- place to sell reloading gear, because I can't imagine ever finding a deal worth purchasing.

This may have changed since I simply laugh at the idea of looking there when I'm in the mood to buy.

Given my experience... that's where you'll want to try to sell your Loadmaster.

I talked to a guy that sell reloading stuff on eBay and how used stuff was going higher than I could buy it new he said most of his business was overseas no taxes or red tape by buying it used
that’s why there aren’t many deals on reloading stuff on eBay
