I didn’t even pay that much for the new set of dies and base plate I bought recently for my press.:oops:
I can’t figure gouging when retailers are selling every item they have instantly.

I've got the same thing in 38/357 mag, 30 carbine, and 45ACP that I'll sell for the same bargain price, but I'll pay for shipping.

There's a set of old-school steel dies (not carbide) that's been bid up to $81 so far. That's nuts.

After paying those super inflated prices for a die set. You have an expensive paper weight unless you have powder, primers, and bullets on hand. Around here, components are never in stock.

you could easily triple the price if you add a box of 100 SPPs to the deal.

I wonder if the buyer even knows what else is needed to handload.

I spent $90 bucks on a set of dies for 45acp today. I have lpp, powder and projectiles. I dont know squat about reloading, but am reading the book on setting up the press.so, like many, I'll learning the process to feed my shooting habit.
Hope I don't screw this up.

That is just crazy. I am buying a set of dies for the regular price of $45 or so, and I just bought a small base sizer die for about $25 off of Amazon. Panic and desperation is correct, stupidity is also a possibility if they don't bother to shop around.

I think the trick is to be patient. There must be places that allow backorders... or maybe not.

EDIT: There are. I went and checked my favorite accessory site and they are taking backorders. Although, in all fairness, they don't carry the Lee Loader. But a 4-die carbide set from Lee is available for $47.89. Someday.

The good news is they last forever. That's high but that's what we're dealing with these days. If you need any help or have any questions the reloading forum is there to help!

I'm trying to find some 308 Winchester dies right now and I thought I had a line on some, but they're out and everybody else is too except for the gougers. I'll wait. I'll run across them at some point, for normal price. No hurry.
