I honestly considered bidding for it but EIGHT pallets? That's a little more than will fit in my garage and the supply would probably outlast me. If it were full rounds, a group buy/bid could have been in order.
Bottom line, someone had a heck of a time shooting up eight pallets of .40 and 12 gauge tax dollars. 8)
scrap value alone is probably worth more than that
You think? Maybe so. It was a boat load of brass. When I was thinking about bidding on it with a partner, we thought we saw some .223 boxes mixed in also but the estimate we calculated was about half of $7600.
Then again, it wouldn't be the first time we undervalued something at bid.
Man, I still wish it was live ammo. We coulda hosted the first CSF 12 gauge and .40 multi-gun, shoot 'til the barrel melts down, match 8)
yeah id say way more than that weight, considering that the US government surplus auctions will have 3 or 4 bins that will go into the 3-5000lb range... 8 pallets would go way over that mark im sure...
