Well, at least it’s a topic. I got a great deal on some used but new RCBS .300 mag dies. The problem is I don't have that caliber gun. I have a 30.06 and what more do I need. Maybe someday when I'm rich and famous I'll hunt brown bear and moose??? eye roll
Anybody ever buy things backwards like me? Think

Hey don't worry!! Back when I started reloading for rifle I bought a set of .45 ACP dies, and that was 2 years before I actually reloaded my own first pistol rounds. cool Worst yet, when I first learned to reload and had my new equipment I still fired cheap factory .45 ACP ammo in my pistols. A lot of times at a public range I still shoot only cheap factory ammo out of an auto loaders because it's impossible to police all of my brass that flies everywhere and gets stepped on by the people at the range.

Keep those .300 dies, you may end up with a rifle in that caliber someday.

I'm almost 57 years old and still come home with products of every sort that I don't need. won't use, but the price was right.

I also have a bunch on non corrosive M2Ball ammo that I don’t want to use in my Browning Bar anymore. I think that means I'll just have to buy an M1Garande or 1903 Springfield. Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up

Back in 1973 I bought a 25 Soper size die. Had no idea then what a 25 Soper was but was sure I might have a need for one someday. Carried that thing around for about 20yrs the sold it to another kid that was sure he'd need it someday. I've got a Herter in line seater die for a 25-06 that I'm sure will work and various other stuff that qualifies as just that, stuff. Stuff defines who we are, collect it. It also drives wife's crazy!

I brought 5 ft roll of cardboard home. It’s about a big a me. It sure will work well for shotgun patterns though as well drawn pictures to shoot at the range.
