    For a potential sale in the immed. Memphis area, I have 120 rds. Will be Local, In Person...only. Not worth the trouble to do otherwise.

    In the six beige twenty-rd. boxes, it was described at our gun club simply as "corrosive".
    Only marking on the boxes: "ONE 23". Nothing else, at all.

    Headstamp "23", "66", darkish-green lacquered cases, copper-jacketed fmj. Exc. condition.

    It's old MFS made Hungarian, should have a 126 grain lead core bullet. Seems to be loaded hotter than most combloc surplus and reportedly with a more terminally effective bullet.

    No idea on value in your area, but around here probably 50 or 60 cents a round to knowledgeable shooters.

    If you advertise it locally the price is limited only by your chutzpah and how much the most desperate local is willing to pay. :ninja:

    Red Army 7.62x39 is available at 52c/rnd online. Steel case 7.62x39 is running above 50c/rnd currently, you can check prices at Gun_Deals. While folks can buy online at 50c/rnd, hard to sell unless your price is lower. I typically set my price at 80%; otherwise, takes a long time to sell. Amazing 223 steel case is now 70c/rnd. I just sold 500 rounds locally at 50c/rnd, made profit and helped folks who need them!

    You guys are finding ammo available locally? Local stores out here looks like they were pillaged by Vikings.

    Bud’s physical store in Lexington had a ton of x39, I want to say it was something like $9/box for Wolf.

    Now 9mm, wow. $40/50.

    Sidenote: you guys all realize that for Cases of modern (all non-corrosive) 7.62x39, prices >> with online distributors << have Dropped...

    .. ..from a minimum of $620 in Oct/Nov...... :scrutiny: down to $500 for 1,000 rds. of Wolf or Tula? --------Just want to add this for those who didn't realize.

    This plausibly could indicate a Tiny forerunner/thin, leading edge of reduced hysteria (and people Have noticed : zero (0) long-awaited Exec Orders signed regarding guns/ammo), which could very slowly spread to 9mm and .223.
    Or it might just be increased overseas production/shipping partly catching up with disgust over insane prices +sales taxes etc).
