H all, trying to determine what some components may be worth. I was recently offered the chance to purchase some items and want to determine what pricing might be fair.

Paper hulls, a large number of Federal and Winchester paper hulls.

Winchester AA hulls, I believe these would be the "old style" hulls.

Paper hull conditioner (heated "sizer" deprimer for paper hulls).

Federal 209 primers, seems like these are more expensive than Fiochi or Cheddite?

Powder, there is an eight pound container of Blue Dot, 700x and Red Dot.

Wads, a couple of cases (5000) wads for paper hulls and Winchester AA (I am guessing these to be the old style AA hulls?).

Ponsness Warren 800b progressive reloader.

There is another progessive reloader that is Blue in color that is set up to load the paper hulls. The loader is believed to be 50 years old, it does not appear to be a Pacific brand but I don't recall the make.

Without quantities you can't get an estimate of value. That said, it sounds like an assortment of goodies I'd offer $300-$400 for.

Some rough estimates:


Fed Paper hulls -.05/ea.<br>
Old Style Win hulls- .05/ea.<br>
Hull conditioner- $20-$50<br>
Fed primers - $30/1000<br>
8lb powders- $100-$120/ea.<br>
Wads- $50-$80/cs of 5000<br>
PW-$200-$300

I suppose the age of the components should be taken into consideration... old powder and wads are "old" powder and wads... I can't speak for the "papers" or the PW, but we regularly get folks inquirying about cleaning out old components...recently one of guys had an estate sale out the back of his SUV...

Lead in bulk $25/25#
Primers $25/1000
Wads $8-10/1K
Powder $8/1#
All the STS/AAs/Premiers - once fired... $30-35/1000

Not cheap, but not giving it away either... both sides have to bring fairness to the transaction...

Spitter has the component prices about right. The PW reloader is an older version, and harder to get parts for, if anything breaks, $200 tops. $50 for the other reloader, if you want to mess with it. Mark

Interesting to see and hear some of the responses on this topic. While the components do have some age, it is all good stuff. I will help her get decent pricing for her stuff. Here in the west components are getting harder to find let alone at good prices.

For those that suggesting low ball offers, I hope your loved ones don't have to endure approaches suggesting your treasures are not worth what you paid for it...

If the powder was sealed, it would likely be alright- even though it is in the old cardboard kegs. I don't know how long it has been since Blue Dot was sold in 8# kegs.

The blue press sounds like an old Bair- but without pics it would be hard to tell the model.

Most of my treasures are not worth what I paid for them. Now the story has gone from buying it yourself to helping the poor widow woman sell her late husband's estate so she can buy food. If you want to buy/sell at sympathy prices, get whatever you can, and throw in an extra few bucks. When I go to a garage sale, I don't expect to pay retail, even if the stuff is brand new. The right price is what the seller and buyer agreed on. Selling during a buying frenzy works for the seller. Mark

Oregunner / Mark, never stated it like you suggest. Never said it was a poor widow / charity case. I didn't mis-represent anything from the beginning, I said I was trying to establish fair value. Again I thank those that offered information. I just stated that some was better than others and some responses very self serving. Just calling it like I see it.

To those who have messaged interest, I will be meeting with the lady in question (actually a daughter not widow) Saturday and will determine what she wants to do.

Of the Federal primers are original and not 209 A's, I would have an interest

PS i don't think the super target papers will sell but might be surprised.

I will admit to some exaggeration. First you asked for suggestions of fair market value, then you chastised those that gave you an opinion. The old saying goes, "Most people don't want advice, even when they ask for it". Oh well. Pay what you feel good about paying. Mark
