    I have a can of M1911 ammunition that’s dated 1949. It’s a full can of 20 boxes. Does anyone have a ball park price on this stuff? Is there a collectors market out there for post WW2 ammo or would I be better off shooting it?

    Thanks

    Shoot it. Ammo prices are so cheap now that I can hardly justify reloading.

    probably not worth much more than new production ammo.

    If it is worth the same difference as new stuff, I would keep it intact unless you need the $. Might not be worth more now, but who knows, might find a person of interest later that would be interested. Most likely will not be worth less later. JMO

    Guess this kind of thinking is why I have so much "stuff" sitting around, ha ha, but ya never know. If you happened to run accorss a Serial number to match a 1949 1911 pistol, what kind of unique package would that be worth to the right person you have not met yet? Just saying.
