BFR 475/480

Found a BFR 475/480 for $850 includes dies and 100 brass. Is this a good deal or not?

I paid $829 for my BFR new last year(mine's a 460). Just over a year ago actually. But I believe prices have gone up a bit since then, and the BFRs seem to be pretty hard to come by now.

That one at Buds looks like a really good deal. But the other one is a fair price as well, considering it has the extra goodies. The brass and dies would cost you close to $100 if you bought them new.

I bought one early this year for $700 +tax (slightly used). With the dies and brass, I'd say it's a fair price but not a bargain. But they aren't easy to find and if you want one and the price is close, I'd go with it.
