Currently on Gunbroker they’ve bid a box of 6.5 Accubond LR 142’s bullets for reloading up to $190 for qty 100, when there are 2 other auctions ongoing with buy it now prices of $135 and $160 for the same exact thing.

Im sorry, but some people are just too dumb to be reloading.

If you pay attention, GunBroker if full of sellers who bid up their items through other fake user IDs. I have continually saw on more than one occasion where a used rifle would be bid up and constantly relisted.

I thought you got charged even with non-payment. GB selling is new to me, but with these crazy prices I’m going to offload a few boxes of some popular bullets that are going for insanely prices. The rest I am going to keep in my “invest in heavy metals” portfolio.

I'm not sure about getting charged regardless. You could be right. I know that you don't have to pay them at all but you can't sell anything until you do pay them.

I recently sold a cpl "reloading supply" items on there and both sold for more than similar product that had lower "buy it now" pricing. I believe it's the way a person formats their search parameters and can't see all the product.

There used to be a coin auction site called TeleTrade that had their computer set up to autobid [they called it incremental bid] in order to boost the price.
