How reliable are boot sizes in different brands?

I'm a 9.5 street shoe, but my Ride Jackson Boas are size 11. Based on this, I'm a little skeptical of boot sizes. No biggie if I'm buying new ones in the store, but when looking through craigslist (or this forum) it's a big concern. Also an issue for mail-order, although those places usually have a good exchange policy. (still a hassle, though)

I did what wiredsport asked in another thread and measured my foot, and I'm 27.5 cm (both feet about the same). So, is there any way for me to improve my odds of buying a used boot without lots of driving around and visiting and trying on? Or should I ask potential sellers to measure their own foot before I visit? Yeah, that'll go over big
