    Just wondering if there is a market for this stuff.

    I was cleaning out some of my "stash" and ran across several old boxes of ammo. Not sure how old, but I'm thinking the 60s or before.
    I'm not sure.

    I didn't know if anyone actually collected this stuff or what?

    Thanks

    Dave

    I'll give you twice what you paid for it back then!

    I'll give you two and a half times what you paid for it.

    There is a market for the stuff if the boxes are in good shape.

    There is a market and the prices are outrageous.

    I have several boxes of #2 Remington Express waterfowl loads that are 100% lead.
    I'm hanging on to them.
    Those pristine goose loads plus my orange UNOPENED can of Keystone, Might just put some lucky grand kid through trade school.

    I have several cases of 16 ga duck and pheasant loads in lead. The box they came in, that I still have, I'm told is worth as much as the ammo. I can't verify that myself. I buy, don't sell.

    I've got shoe boxes full of old ammo that I don't even remember what gun they fit in. When I cleaned out my parents gun closet a few years ago I found all kinds of antique stuff.
    Hey Ratski, what was your question again?

    WTF is the caliber of your ammo?

    This isn't the classifieds is it? don't want to get charged for another offense.
