So its a funny story really. :lol: I was going to go with Shep's advise here and well I kinda did still.... I spent too much money today though. :roll: I went to Cabela's and bought an open box special, The Lee 1000 progessive kit with 9mm dies. Regularly 199, on sale for $125. :) I wasn't sold on the kit really, I think I just jumped on it because of the discount. :| :? On my drive back from Denver I kinda talked myself into not using it for rifles, & keeping it on a back burner until I reloaded pistol ammo. :eh: Or I could always sell it...

I stopped in @ Bass Pro shop and found nothing interesting. So I headed over to the pawn shop that had the RCBS partner kit for $99. I looked it over, it was new in the box but the reloading manual is missing. I pointed this out to the pawnbroker and he looked it up in his computer and said "How about $50 +tax?" Sold! 8-) (the funny thing is, I was going to try for $65, instead it was $54! :thumbup: )

So I went home and looked around on armslist to see what a Lee Progessive goes for and if there were any up for sale right now. :think: Typed in "reloading set" and found a guy looking for a progressive kit. And he has a heavy barrel Savage .223 for straight across trade, and he is 5 minutes from my house. :mrgreen:

So now I have a RCBS Partner kit that still has a couple pages of coupons including 1 set of free dies, and a .223 Savage 110 with a Douglas heavy barrel and a Leopold scope mount. :clap: :thumbup: :D :o

I think I had a pretty good day in the long run. A new RCBS reloading kit for $54 and a new heavy barrel rifle for $133! :wave:

Great deals. Douglas barrels is about 10 minutes from me. I'm thinking about having him rebarrel my next build for me. Think I'm going to do a Mosin in .260 next.
