Chaos - I think you're a little off base here. Let me explain. I'm looking to make a Grief. The purpose of using a PB is because Grief adds fixed damage, not a percentage - so the damage boost is coming from the RW, not the base. The PB base is desirable in this case primarily for it's -30 WSM, which is the same regardless of regular or superior.
For example, a normal PB damage is 31-35, and yours is 35-39. I roll a +300 Grief so a regular PB would be 331-335 and your PB would be 335-339. It's literally a miniscule difference. The %ED doesn't matter. It may matter to somebody for a different use, so I can completely understand if you want to trade it to somebody else, but with such low damage and a tight range, I'm not sure how much more beneficial a Sup PB really is.
Here is the price check thread for reference - scroll down to Socketed Weapons. I have 20 PGems if you want them. Otherwise, I understand. Thanks for posting.

Hi Nulio - no problem whatsoever - I appreciate your opinion and it certainly tells me that a Sup PB could have significantly more value than a base one. For my particular purposes though, I still consider the +4 damage absolutely irrelevant and therefore not factored into my valuation. I guess I will ask directly for a non-Sup 5os PB and pay the lower price - or just continue to hunt them down and cube socket until I find my own. Thanks again for weighing in.
Side note - Grief can actually roll +340 to +400 (my 300 example wasn't quite right). In any case, let's pretend we consider the ED as a way to "make up" for a bad Grief roll. The worst roll possible would be 340. So I roll a 340 and with this Sup PB I'm getting 4 more points of damage..... 4 / 340 = 1.1% more damage. In my opinion, that is irrelevant, but maybe I'm mistaken.
