    Are any of these actual vintage or just kinda old....?

    First post here!

    I got these in a package deal with a Dillon 550 press and I'm wondering if they are worth saving or trading/selling on their own.

    Enjoy assuming I can figure out pics!

    They ain't worth nothing I don't think I but would be neat to have on display. I have ammo boxes from the 80s behind my long guns in my cabinet.

    No real collector value but all of it looks in great serviceable condition!
    Looking for Ideal molds 419181 (44 Evans Long) and 375167 (38-72)
    "Joined Dates" are deceiving if you factor-in "lurk" dates.

    Nothing old or exciting. The primers are sometimes sought out by folks with light triggers as the cups are softer.

    Fair enough, I had my suspiscions, the components sure look like new and are gonna get used eventually! ill dig out the 308 boxes also but they are probably same vintage. I suspect someone may get a kick out of seeing them anyway.

    If you're selling them, they're vintage.
    If you're buying them, they're just old.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes.
    However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    Old age and treachery will always overcome youth, and skill.

    OK folks. Enough of this idle chit chat. This ain't no retirement home.
    EVERYONE!!
