    ** SOLD ** I have 3 cases of 1000's (total 3000 rounds).  Ease case has 20 boxes of 50 rounds.  2 cases of JSP and 1 case of FMJ.  All are 55 gr's.  The manufacturer of the ammunition is 'Accurate Ammunition' and the ammo is made in USA (at least that what it says so on the box).  I have never heard of this manufacturer and they seem no longer exist.  I have recently shot about 3 boxes of these and they work just fine.  I do not believe they are reloads but then I am no ammo expert.

    I got this lot of ammunition from a departed friend.  I have no idea when he acquired them but as I said - they fire when I pull the trigger.

    I am asking for $270/case (of 1000 rounds) plus UPS shipping.  That's only 27c per round and is cheaper than Wolf!  I just do not feel comfortable keeping that much ammo at home particularly the only place I have to store them is close to the kitchen.

    Please post here, PM or email me if you are interested.  I'll try to post some pics in the next few days.

    I know it has to be marked as ordinance, and it has to go via a shipper (UPS, FedEx), and my 500 rounds in a can weighs about 10 lbs.  So figure 60 lbs give or take.  I'm thinking $25-40 shipped, but I could be off.

    I have 4 interested parties for the ammo so far.

    I will post the weight of each case over the weekend. I will also post some pics of the ammo.

    The shipping origin zip code is 85260. you can go to UPS.com to guesstimate your shipping cost once you know the weight.

    Not knowing the content of the PM's I refer you back to the TP rules.  Just making sure you understand them.  Hmmm, I see they disappeared with the TP crash.  Disregard, I'm sure you have it under control.   ;)

    But the rule I was referencing was that you should respond to each buyer in the order of their PM's. First come first served. :)

    Re: FS: 55gr .223 ammo

    Yes, to keep things open and fair to all, the TP rules (which I will repost this weekend) require that you must post in the thread, I'll take it, etc" to establish a pecking order.  Folks can PM or post inquiries but that does not establish a place in line or outrank a posted "I'll take it".  ;)


    BTW, in order to estimate shipping with UPS, one needs the weight, height, width and length of the package. I would appreciate that info on one case.
     
  9. Re: FS: 55gr .223 ammo

    OK- I will JUMP first and declare that:

    I WILL TAKE ONE CASE of the 55 gr Soft Point @ asking price of $270 + shipping.

    Asumes bowmaker will split it up, and previous PM indicated he would.

    bowmaker- another pm is on the way to you.

    seez52, I did send you 2 PM's this morning. Anyway, you are 4th in line and on the bubble. The first 3 that contacted me were mif_slim(PM), Nu_aging_shooter(PM) and Shanghai_dan(email).

    I got a few photos up on photobucket, so you know better what you are buying:

    http://i540.photobucket.com/albums/gg342/bowmaker_az/ammo/IMG_0451.jpg

    The headstamps read LC## where ## is 2 numbers; it seems different boxes have different 2 digit numbers. I only randomly checked 2 boxes.

    The weight of each case is about 29 lbs. size 14x11x6. shipping origin zip code is 85260.

    Re: FS: 55gr .223 ammo

    well dang, I thought I was number 2 in line. :eek:

    found the PMs, thought the board sent emails, but guess not, maybe need to check my prefs.

    Let me know how it comes out, offer stands.

    Re: FS: 55gr .223 ammo

    The PM email notification needs to be checked on page 2 of your preferences.  And I was slightly in error in referring to the rules.  TxCajun confirmed that a buyer needed to post with "I'll take it", as well as "PM sent".  And technically Shanghai_dan violated the rules by going straight to email and not posting anything in the thread.  Sorry fella..   :-[
     
  19. Re: FS: 55gr .223 ammo

    bowmaker and I have agreed to buy/sell one case of the 55 gr soft point.

    And not that it counts here, but for the record, I was the first pm sent noted in this thread:

    AND THIS IS THE ONE THAT COUNTS- I was the first to post I WILL TAKE IT in this thread.


    Bowmaker has accepted my offer for the one case of 55 gr soft point.

    bowmaker - another pm sent
