I am a soft touch for used reloading equipment. There are some real bargains out there if you can find them. The local gun shop had an almost-new RCBS RockChucker reloading press for sale. I got it for $60.00 to compliment the RockChucker I bought back in 1971.

The next week, they had a MEC 600 12 gauge press and I needed one. For $40.00 it came home with me. I like getting discounts and quality equipment. Anyone else shop for used reloading equipment? All the best...
Gil

One of my neighbors has a used Ponsness/Warren Metallic II Semi-Progressive Single Stage Reloader that he wants an arm and a leg for. Not that I'm interested in it at all. Anybody ever use one? I had never seen one before.

Ponsness-Waren doesn't seem to be around much these days, but in its day, it was one of the PREMIER shotshell loaders. Still is:

I just checked, and the company is still in business. Its products are expensive. $700+ for the more deluxe one, and about $400 for the "economy" model. (The one I wanted before discovering I have absolutely NO talent as a shotgunner.)

You could probably pass the neighbor's on to your children, if it is well-cared for, and it would load a truckload of ammo for you.

They may be the Dillon products of the shotgun world--you see guys paying to within 20%+ of new price for Dillon stuff on EBay.

I've purchased a good bit of used reloading equipment at gun shows. As long as it hasn't been abused there shouldn't be any problem. Most reloading equipment will last almost forever. Best wishes.
