    130 pound score

    I've been reading about all of these garage sale finds that I never seem to stumbled on. That ended today. Hit an estate sale but was a little late for the presses but found a couple a 3 hidden boxes that has 130 pounds total for soft lead, Lyman #2, pipe lead and raw wheel weights. The estate sale company sold it to me for $30.00, yup 23 cents per pound. All but 15.5 pounds in stamped ingots. Also got a lee 329-250 R1 with handles for $8.00

    They also had a green pot, turned out to be an old coleman white gas single burner with a pot and lee ladle not the RCBS I thought when they mentioned it. Win some, lose some.

    I'm curious; were the reloading tools and lead listed in the estate sale description, or was it something that was an incidental find? Occasionally I'll see fishing equipment listed and pictured, including lead weights, but I've never seen casting or reloading stuff listed or described. Maybe it's just California being the Left coast again.

    I went to an estate sale, simply because they did mention reloading stuff and said the owner had been an avid trapshooter. Most of the stuff was for shotgun, but a Lee 10lb pot came home with me.
