A guy I know is hurting for cash and 5000 rounds of .22 in a sealed ammo can, is $350 a fair price in todays market?

Early signs of neckbeard .22 bubble burst?

It's not something I'd pay, but $35 a brick is cheaper than a lot of places are selling it for.



If it's Rem Golden Bullets, run away.

My guess in the next year you'll see many huge lots of .22 come on the market.

I'll wait until desperation sets in.

Federal 550 round bulk packs are $23.75 at walmart.

So, would $300 be a fair offer? I like the guy and don't want to nail him to bad, but I don't want to hurt myself either. He's out of work and trying to keep his family afloat and I don't need it so its kind of a charity buy.

Sounds a little high to me.  The only way I'd bite is if I was really just trying to help a friend out and it was CCI.

$35 a brick. It depends what kind of ammo it is I guess.

I would give him between 300 and 350 if he was a buddy hard up, even if he is making a few bucks on the deal still. Not sure about your area but he could  still get 10-13 cents a round for it here.

Why buy at an inflated price?

Maybe he should have spent more time preparing his finances better instead of loading up on ammo to overcharge people on.

If you think it is too much or just don't want it don't buy it. He will have no problem selling it for that price to someone else who needs ammo in this market.

Are you planning to sell these or add them to your ammo fort?  It's a tougher price to set if you're going to sell as opposed to just adding them to your stockpile, in which case my only concern would be to not over-gouge myself with the charity buy.  It's one thing if a buddy was selling some ammo to fund another toy, another if he's selling for his family.  I'd tend to overpay for the latter.  My reccomendation, go on Gunbroker and look up recent completed auctions for .22LR.  Based on a rough average of some sales will give you a fairly accurate price for what that .22 stockpile would actually sell for on the open market.
Link Posted: 8/8/2014 9:39:49 AM EDT

hahaha

nope

More like $150

ETA:  if it's a charity buy......offer what you can afford and don't worry about it.
Link Posted: 8/8/2014 9:39:58 AM EDT

I would say the .06 for the convenience of not having to shop around for 5000 rounds of ammo is probably worth it. Even if you didn't know that situation, how long would it take you to come by that much .22? And if you had the time you would probably average somewhere around .05 for it anyways.

That still doesn't negate the fact that he should have had his finances together.

The fact that he is asking that much money for .22 lr is absurd and what is even more absurd is that you are thinking of paying that much for it.

You can "help" your friend all you want but there is no way in hell I would pay $350 for it.

Must be nice to be rich.

I have been dropping almost every dime I make into becoming debt free, if I lost my job tomorrow I be good for about four months myself before I started selling shit to pay the bills. Selling shit off would get me another 10-12 months.

If it was a friend I was wanting to help out I'd pay it and not dicker. It's not such a gross overprice as to be obscene so I'd buy and shoot. But that's me, I tend to try and help those few I consider real friends.

Personally I wouldn't pay over $250.  If you want to help the guy out and you have the cash I think $300 would be ok.  

For a good friend I might even just give him the $300 if I could afford it.  I wouldn't expect it to be paid back and it would be a one time gift.

ETA:  There probably 2 guys on the list of friends I do that for though.

Not sure what your job market is, but its almost impossible to get a job here. Hes not just sitting around with his thumb up his ass or a no skill schlub, He has a masters and is a skilled tradesman. He is out 5 days a week, at the job service every day, dropping apps almost every day, and has worked his whole life.

Not a "good friend", he is someone I have known for about 15 years though. we go shooting or fishing occasionally and we have been to each others place for a BBQ a couple times but I don't talk to once or twice a month.

ETA: I think I will offer him $300 and set a couple of boxes aside and give them to his kids on their birthdays so they can shoot since this is every round of .22 he has. I'll add the rest to my ammo fort.

I wish I felt the same way. I haven't seen any .22 in my local walmart in almost a year. Local gander mountain gets some but unfortunately I have a day job and can't sit there and wait for themn to open. Also, I am in NY some many places won't ship to NY due to the SAFE act. So while you may be able to use a phone app to obtain ammo, I cannot. So for me, the convience of being able to instantly have 5000 rounds would be worth overpaying a friend .01 a round.
