Bought in mid to late Nineties, I don't remember the manufacturer. Help, please! 200 round bundles. What is the approximate value, these days, of this 200 round pack? Thank you!

Try a magnet on it.

If it sticks, it's steel case/brass washed Chinese made to imitate British ammo for insurgent use. It may be crossive primed.

If it's brass case, it's real British Radway Green ammo.

Value depends on which it really is.

Based on this site, it looks to be Brit, but as rcmodel noted, check the case.

Thank you. Case is non-magnetic. I appreciate the info. Care to hazard a guess at the value of the 200 rounds?

In today's market, you could get .40-.50 a round relatively easily.

Looks like British Radway.

By the way, Brit Radway is considered to be some of the best. German Hirt, Brit Radway, Aussie and Portuguese are tops.

Man, Don't fire that stuff!!!! It needs to be disposed of properly. Carefully wrap all that you have and send it to me. I will make sure that this unsafe ammo will not get into the wrong hands. Just looking out for your safety!:D

Just kiding man. That stuff is 1984 British Radway Green and I wouldn't sell it for less than 65 cents apiece. Radway ammunition is one of the best around today.
