Selling CR rifles

Is it better to sell a CR rifle alone or in a package deal with brass and dies or would it be better to sell them separately? Any suggestions?

Depends on how common the caliber is. 8x57, probably not. 8x50R, you're much more likely to need the die set

If your selling on a local venue I'd offer them together or as separate items at the buyers preference. If selling on gunbroker or another online auction i'd separate them.

There's a good chance someone buying the rifle will already have one. The dies and brass won't make the rifle worth any more on an online gun auction. I'm guessing there's a reason you rarely ever see package deals like that on online auctions.

Thanx, and you're right. It's rare to see package deals offered. Should I expect to get new price for the new brass I have?
