    So I have accumulated a bunch of reloading equipment and components. I was hot and heavy reloading and really enjoyed developing rounds for different firearms. I haven’t touched it in more than a year. I haven’t had time to shoot much either. I don’t see I’ll have any time in the next year. So what do I do with all this stuff? Box it up and possibly never use it again or push it out the door?? I know there’s plenty of people that have been in this situation.

    Same here. I have a number of dies, the projectiles, powder and primers. But I haven't loaded a round in 5 or 6 years. I have the equipment still set up and could load if need be. I just don't think I ever would unless it were a SHTF scenario.

    Depending on what you have and what you want for it I could take some off your hands

    That’s the thought that has kept me from selling it. I have a rule I adopted a few years back, anything I haven’t used in a couple years goes, just to keep the constant accumulation of “potentially useful stuff” pilling up around the house. When I die I don’t want it to be my kids or wife’s hassle to go through tons of crap.
