    That is about right.

    I just sold off 8,000 rounds of 7.62x39, on 10 round strippers, and in bandoleers, in Ammo Cans. I did this on consignment at a local gun shop, and paid them 10% of the selling price. I ended up getting about $0.21 per round when all was said and done. Given that my cost was probably $0.09 per round, I feel pretty good about that.

    Fun Fact: The buyer contacted me through the gun shop to ask what else I might have. He wanted to know why I was selling all of this ammo. I told him that I no longer own any 7.62x39 firearms. I sold them all off over the last several years. I just outgrew them is all. He was very thankful, and ended up buying all of the rest of my AK mag loaders, strippers, chest pouches, cleaning kits, etc. So, two happy campers.

    You may want to see if any gun shops in your area does this kind of selling. It really worked out great for me.

    I brought a case lot of all new in the wrapper Colt AR mags , 1 gross,,to one of the local shops I do business with regularly 3 days ago and they just called me this morning and asked if I had any more!! WOW,, that didn't take long.

    They sold them ,,ALL,, for 30 ea,,in 2 1/2 days,,,,, holly shit. Made some bucks on those baby's,, I only paid 4 for them when I bought them, and they took 10% for selling them. Wish I had more now !!!! Good margin.

    Getting crazy!!!! Never thought I'd see the day an AR mag would sell for 30 bucks ea !!!!! Holly Crap!
