Like everything else on this earth, it'd be worth whatever you could get for it. There isn't any going rate on the Romy blue wash stuff as there's never been a bunch of it around.

I have some and it is match ammo (or Romy's version of it).

Handloaders who load for semi/full auto weapons often use SB dies which sizes the brass to the smaller end of the specs' scale to help with easy feeding and extraction.

I have compared the Romy match ammo with many other makes/models of M43 ammo and it is much tighter in the average ak/sks than all the others I have tried.

Generally speaking, the tighter a cartridge fits in the chamber, the more accuarte it tends to be.

However, not many people will give a crap how accurate it is if it jams in their weapon.

Some people may not want it due to possible feeding/extraction problems in tight headspacing rifles, but I have a few that shoots it well and accurately.

Right now there seems to be a shortage of any M43 ammo, so you may do well trying to sell it now.

If you're still trying to sell it let me know.
