Great advice....I appreciate it. Sometime is pays to just float a request out there and see what happens....miracles do happen once in a while. But the updated GN model is the one to have. I saw them advertised for just under $300 somewhere online in July, but didn't save the address, and haven't been able to find one since.
Appreciate all the help on this one. I'm still searching for that $299 price I saw last month, but I am getting close to buying a new one anyway. The folks at conniescomponents.com have one for $329.99 plus shipping, and I did find one through a local discount retail store for $319.99 but availability and procurement time may be a problem. Any other thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
I've only been at it for a few days, and I totally understand what you mean. The used or auction prices are high enough that it makes the decision to buy a new one fairly easy. Kind of nice to be joining the ranks of those who consider this a really good reloader. I found a fair price on the new 9000GN at a dealer earlier this evening, and went ahead and ordered it.
Many thanks to all of you who made offers or offered encouragement/suggestions.

Few tips on finding good deals on loaders on ebay. 1 Decide on a price you want to pay, stick to it. 2 look for listings ending during the week mid day or late night. 3 place your highest bid several hours before it ends. I to have been looking for a 9000 myself. I will wait until I find one for a bargin. right now ill stick with my 650 i found at a yard sale for 35.00
I have a 9000GN for sale. 1yr old. I have the box and paperwork. It comes with 5 charge bars (7/8,1,1 1/8,1 3/16,1 1/4) several bushings and the bottle support. $300.00. I will ship for free if it goes to a business address.
