    Need some help with values

    Long story short, relative of a relative passed away and I'm trying to help the family.

    Here is most of his ammo stash.

    I'm trying to get some idea as to value.

    I know shipping would be a probable deal breaker, so I'm figuring on local sales (OK/North TX).

    Any help in the valuation department would be greatly appreciated.

    Thats gonna take some time.....

    the stenciled markings on the boxes are a start, but don't mean much....

    for instance....is the 1920rds .30 cal carbine 1950's LC, new commercial, or recent S. Korean surplus?

    Same goes for the 7.62 and 5.56.....origin and manufacturer/age make a difference.

    I'd see if any is still in its original packaging first.....then you can get a better idea of value.

    You've got your work cut out for you......I've been trying to sell a good quantity of 7.62 locally......don't want to deal with the hassle of shipping, but I'm surrounded by cheap-asses who want me to meet them half way to their place and sell for give-away pricing

    Shipping is easy. It's just not cheap. Right now is probably the best time to be selling ammo in many years. If it were me I'd throw that ammo up on Gunbroker (actually if I were you I'd just buy it all if the price were right) and make a killing on it. Charge the buyer for shipping.

    From kali to PA shipping on 500 rounds of 308/7.62x51 was 38 dollars last July

    That was commercial ammo in the winchester, pmc, & black rain 20 round boxes.

    So shipping isn't really a deal breaker but needs paid by the buyer.

    Also ammo has to ship from a ups hub.

    Now is a good time to sell, agreed date of mfg. production name, and even sometimes lot number matter with mil sure.

    Good luck with the sale.
    I'd be interested in some m1 30 cal. When you get to it so long as it's reloadable and more then likely it is.

    I sold a ton of 762x25 this spring in the 1260 round tins. I found the best way to ship is to go to UPS.com and search up 'Simple Rate' (https://www.ups.com/us/en/services/s...mple-rate.page). It's a trade name for their flat rate shipping program. You can ship up to 50 pounds for under $25 across the country (no AK and HI), less if the box is smaller. You get $100 insurance and they take ammo without any extra charges. I shipped tins of ammo as far as California for $18. You fill in the details and pay for it online and print your own shipping label. Because it's ammo you do have to drop it off at a UPS terminal, you can't use the UPS Stores or drop boxes. Don't even think about asking at the UPS Store or their terminals, they know nothing about it.

    I'd be willing to pay pre PLANdemic prices for ammo as long as I know origin, condition, etc. Unfortunately on the seller side, many of us are holding out for prices to normalize again.

    5.56, 7.62 Russian, Tokarev, 9mm, 45ACP, 5.45x39mm mostly what I'm interested in. Can't quite see what all is in the photo on mobile.

    I bet those nice cases are not full of their original ammunition. Regardless, it's going to be worth good money right now. You need to be willing to ship if you're going to get the current market prices.
