I use a redding powder and bullet scale from the early 1950,s it's the only scale I own . Price on the original box $14.00 and a rcbs powder trickler $3.25 and a Lyman powder measure no price on the box . This was alot of money at that time.
i just don't want to spend the money to up grade.

A great trip down memory lane…. It makes me sick that I did not start reloading back in the day when a dollar was worth something. When I started reloading a few years ago I was naive enough to buy a couple of sleeves of primers at a time and now I find myself paying unbelievable prices for a brick when I can find them. It just defies logic we have come to this point.

Found a couple more old boxes.

There's another one of these Sierra bullet boxes that hasn't been opened

I always wondered what CCI meant ...

Who would buy a Keg of Retumbo for 220 today? Hhaahhahahahhaa.....sorry not funny its really messed up. Found some partitions in a tub for some reason. The old Dupont powder is empty but I liked the can. Not sure what number is the price and I would pay either of them with another zero at the back.

I'm just gonna let you all know that those old primers are inert. I'll dispose of them for you guys. There's no hazmat and you can ship with no worries. I'll pay shipping...
