First let me say what a great and informative forum this is!
I have some .303 ammo I know I will never use so was wondering what a fair asking price would be?
Headstamps are:

U 61 MK . 7 This is what is in my picture, on stripper clips packed in cloth bandoleers.

A 80 7.7 R1M3Z this stuff is packed loose

W.R.A 1943 .303 on stripper clips

Thanks!

The R1M3Z is South African. A80 is non corrosive & no cordite. Nice plinking ammo & it still has the "real alloy tipped" Mk7 bullets. :thumb: Its not considered reloadable though.
I'm a bit out of touch but Id guess 80c a pop?

U 61 is also South African, but I don't know anything more about it. I believe its corrosive & cordite,but that's about it.
South African Mint, Pretoria, South Africa... U code from 1939 - 1961

.303 has definitely gone up but you can get brand new Prvi from AIM for 73 cents per round.

OK I said I was out of touch. #-o
Say 65~70c a pop for the R1M3Z & a bit less for the other S/A stuff?
The WRA43 might be collectable?.
What kind of quantities are we talking about?

100-120 rounds of the R1M3Z and S/A

About 25 rounds of the WRA.

Its not much but I'll probably never use it.

Most WWII .303 Brit is going for around a buck a round on the west coast at gun shows.

I shoot some milsurp but the South African is a bit more rare from what you see today so I don't shoot that type as a collector.

If you want to sell it, start at $40 for a complete 50 round bando with stripper clips and it will most likely go higher. Or look at closed auctions on GB to see what things have gone for.

The WRA is not worth much to a collector because there is so much of it out there but you can still get .50 cents a piece for it.

None of it is "collector" ammo, pretty common and all good for shooting. Unfortunately, only the WRA is really reloadable.
