    Not sure if this is the right place to post this but I was wondering does anyone have an accurate idea of what the fair private party market value of 22lr and 45acp is? The 22 is mostly bulk blazer, Winchester and federal (red box) and the 45 is winchester and fiocchi 230gr FMJ


    I've seen classified ads on other forums selling low end bulk 22 ammo for as much as $.07+/round, and 45 for close to $.60/round... Are people really paying this much for them or are the greedy people just being wishful?


    I have several thousand rounds of 22 and over a thousand 45 (yes I'm one of the guilty ammo hoarders) that I might be willing to part with some or all to help fund my elk season.

    Will consider reasonable offers and trade for diesel

    Thanks for your help

    Both, you'll find people trying to sell for ridiculous prices, and you'll also find people that are willing to pay those prices. However, I for one add anyone to the ignore list if they're trying to profit from a low supply, I know I'm not alone on this.

    In the end, it's a free market, you're allowed to sell for whatever prices that you wish, but you'll probably get a backlash if it's priced above the store prices.

    Market value is defined as what a buyer is willing to pay and a seller willing to accept, so a "fair price" is whatever the parties agree to. If it isn't "fair", one party will decline to make the purchase/sale. Happy negotiations!

    I think that's a fair offer I buy bulk . 45 auto brass fmj at .35-.40 and .22 at .05 max. What are you thinking you want? Where are you located?
    the days of .50-.60 for .45 are gone and .22 can be found at store with a little work. Lucky I'm a hoarder and never had to pay the 2nd hand price. Of you decide on a fair price I may be interested as well.
