Where to find used (cheap) reloading equipment

I've been shopping around for a nice used press but on ebay and such a used dillon press is not much cheaper than a new one. I'm not particular about the brand or anything, but they don't have any presses on craigslist. Any suggestions?

I found my RL550B on a local craigslist ad and it ended up being about $200 less than new when all the accessories that came along with it were thrown in.... You might try Gunbroker.com but I'd think you won't find many good deals on there...

If you're talking about a progressive, consider the Hornady Lock n Load. Hornady has a free bullet offer where, if you buy that press, they'll send you 1000 free bullets. For instance, 1000 .45 XTP 185gr bullets. They retail for $20.99 for 100 at Grafs; 1000 is worth $209.90. You have to pay shipping which reduces the value by about $23, but still it's $186-worth of bullets.

And there are other bullets you can get instead.

You do have to add dies and shellplates, but the net effect is to get, in effect, a $186 or thereabouts discount on the press.

I have one, I love it. Loved the free bullets, too.

You can watch E-bay but as you found, some of those guys pay as much for used as you could get new. Hit the classified sections on many of the forums like this. When I sell sonething, I list it there instead of E-bay. You don't have to deal w/ paying to sell it & can sell it a bit cheaper.
If you really want to get into reloading cheap, you can get a new Lee turret for very little, scale, calipers, misc. & get reloading. Later on, if you feel the need for a progressive, just buy one new & be done w/ it.

I found two lee pro 1k's with dies last year on craigslist for $100. Then again I check craigslist twice a day.
