One of my friends received a couple of cases to sell for an estate.

He asked me if I would buy it.


I am interested but need to be fair.

What is the current rate?

What is a reasonable for a friend rate? (not fornicate a friend)

What is the rate for USGI steel core?

(What the DCM used to sell for matches.)


Thank you all for assistance and sound advice.

CMP has if for around $.30 per round shipped. I picked up 9K of Lake City and Greek over the last year from $.26 - $.28 per round, buying 1k - 2K at at time. If it's a friend I think $.20 per round would be fair. He could get more but selling to you will save a lot of time and effort. My $.02.

Estate sale

The CMP price is .26-.28 cents per round, depending on if in boxes or on clips.
The fair price to both the estate and friend would be market price. The buyer wouldn't have to pay $40.00 or so per case to ship, and the estate would get what it's worth. If you were the dead guy, what would you want? That's my 2 cents.

20 to 25 cents / round would be fair "in bulk".....25cents/round for sure in smaller quantity.

USGI 30-06 Ball mayl be found with plated mild steel bullet jackets, not "steel core"...unless it is M2 AP Black Tip with a Tool Steel Core bullet.
