    Premium ammo, fantastic to shoot, probably not very collectible - I think I still have 30-40 boxes with that print design. Lapua brass is #1 choice in my book for reloading x39 so no matter what you decide to do with it, you can't lose.

    Good ammo and well worth looking through the weeds, (but NOT the poison ivy:eek:), to find the brass.

    It’s both. Shoot the ammo, then collect the brass, reload, repeat.

    Tends to sell for about $1 per round. Very nice, reloadable ammunition.

    Great ammo. It’s up to you if it’s worth shooting or not. Can’t go wrong with ether choice.

    It's very good shooting ammo, and the cases are the best for reloading-if you don't reload 7.62x39, either start or find a friend who does, you will be their new best friend.

    Thank you all for the info.

    I am not a reloader so I will enjoy the ammo,and pass on the brass to whoever is loading in my crowd.

    Or trade it to someone for steel cased Wolf or the equivalent.
    Your brass-cased Geco is going $350/1000, while Wolf-ish steel is going $200/1000 rounds.
    Lots of folks would like to have that reloadable brass.
    Probably quite a few people would give you 2k rounds of steel cased for your 1k rounds of brass cased.
    If you do a local deal it will eliminate shipping costs.
