    Found this from a local guy. I know nothing about reloading but am wondering if this is good enough equipment for the price he's asking:

    most everything is rcbs

    i have a hand press a RS2 model
    powder measure
    case loading block
    deburring tool
    bullet puller by quinetics
    stuck case remover
    primer unit
    2 die set one for a 30-06 and one for a .308
    a case trimmer by lyman
    and a vibrating case cleaner
    tray and polish all by midway

    asking $250

    If it is in decent condition, then I would say it is a very good buy. The value of the press, powder measure, scale, dies & trimmer is probably right at $200 on the used market - especially if you throw in the vibrating case cleaner. Everything else is gravy. Good starter set up.

    Try to find out what condition the items are really in. For example the scale if not taken care of good be worthless. Certainly more expensive but, you may want to just play around and see what a similar setup or the items you really want would cost you knew. That would be my route but that's me. I've learned with reloading get what you want the first time or more than likely you'll be buying items 2x. Just my 2 cents.
