    Secondhand goods sold on behalf

    Does anyone know how I stand, having bought an item from a retail store that they were selling on behalf ?
    Product seems to be faulty, beyond repair (as far as I can tell).
    If it is a case of buyer beware, then so be it.
    I haven't approached the retailer yet, as they don't reopen for a couple of days.

    No. Paid using plastic via retailer.
    FL die puts a nice neat crater in the shoulder of my brass. It did this from the very first case, so I gave it a clean up (not that it needed it really) . No improvement, so picking the die is somehow damaged internally

    Yes you have a right of redress under the Consumer Guarantees Act against the supplier. By the interpretation of the Act they are the supplier (acting as an agent for the person for whom they are selling on behalf).

    The fact that the goods are second hand does not remove the inherent guarantee that goods will be of acceptable quality and fit for purpose afforded under Ss6 and 7 of the Act.

    I assume you have shone a light in there to see if you can see any imperfections or a bit of shit denting the shoulder? When you say crater does it go around the whole shoulder?

    I doubt the it but it could be how you set it up or you could be over lubing?

    Just some ideas to save face in front of the retailer if it is something simple.

    I have done a check with light and there does seem to be an imperfection in the steel. I also cleaned as best I could using cotton buds . Have tried various setup scenarios, with and without decapping pin. Same result
    If it is something that am doing wrong, then I will glady accept resposibilty, but having previously loaded plenty of other loads with other dies, without issues (apart from my own stupidity) then I am buggered if I can see where I may of stuffed up on this one

    I can pop a scope up it for a peep if you want to bring it up or drop it in the letter box.

    Then I would say you should feel confident of getting your money back mate. I would also go as far to say they or the original owner knew the die was buggered and are trying to make them someone else's problem.

    Redding are excellent to deal with. If they are buggered from the original reaming I guarantee the would send you a brand new set.

    I probably err on the side of caution with lube, so could be over doing it.
    But I don't understand how to much lube would put a huge dent in the shoulder, in the exact same place each time.
