    Doesn't seem worth it especially in a Garand. I suppose it would be better in a 1903 or 1917 for ease of cleaning?

    at 54 cents a round shipped its not a bad deal. Depending on year of manufacture im thinking you might find some value in the bandoleers and clips...honestly if cash was flowing as well as it was a few years ago i would probably snag a tin or 2 ?

    OMG, not Corrosive AND Berdan primed? What a rip-off. 54 cents each?

    If I had a 30-06 I'd be all over that. At current scrap rates, the brass is worth about 4 cents bringing each shot to 50 cents. Plus bandoliers and cardboards?
    Plus en-bloc clips? Plus ammo can? Better, reload the damn things. We American shooters are spoiled.

    Then subtract the 15-20$ per bando/clip/cardboard
    You might get a few$ for the tin can?
    I was selling my HXP tins to a club member but I had to open them carefully from the bottom so the cans looked unopened. He would give 5-10$ for spam cans opened this way.
    Moot point as I believe they are sold out.

    easy to reload, finding the right size berdan primer a bit of a problem

    You know when they sell things you don't ordinarily see and you have the cash? You buy a shit ton of it. You know, max out a hazmat or two. That's how you end up with 10's of thousands of the right size Berdan primers.

    Nice, I have sent a request to POTUS to open the flood gates to allow berdan primers into the country.

    When I first googled this, a lot of the early reports (a few years back) were about AP ammo. Wonder if this was a mixed batch of standard and AP?
