    I every so often check Craigslist for firearm items (very few make it past the watchful eyes of the screeners) but the other day I cam across a hell of a deal that had just been posted. I got:

    1 box Hornady marked 180 grain .308
    1 box unknown 150 grain BTSP
    1 box Hornady 130 grain .308 SP
    1 box Nosler combined tech silver tip 150 grain .308
    40 sized and primed .308 cases

    [​IMG]

    All that for $25 otd. Then when I got home I realized the real good news :)

    The taped up box of Hornady 180 grain bullets, was really 98 black tip AP rounds :what:

    At the risk of ratting myself out, I picked up a Hornady Lock-n-Load AP press, 1#powder, 2 die sets, and 200 45acp GDHP bullets for $250 last week. The press is missing the priming system, but the replacement parts will run about $75.
    I purchased 5k CCI34 primer for $100, 8# H4895 for $100, and 2k IMI 62gr fmj 223 bullets for $150 about 6 weeks ago. There are some great deals, if you take the time to look for them.

    Speaking of Craigslist, I am tempted to call this idiot up and string him along. Promise to meet him somewhere and not show up, that kind of thing.

    http://spokane.craigslist.org/spo/1129172938.html

    He is selling primers for 400 dollars for a case of 5000. I don't care how bad you need primers, they aren't worth more than 150 dollars for a case of 5000. This guy is just gouging and gouging hard.

    I hope no one buys his crap at those Cheaper Than [strike]Dirt[/strike] Gold prices.
