Appears that some surplus is still popping up.
From today's North Store report...

Surplus Remington M2 ball, 400 rds., $310+tax, in store only
Since surplus will dry up but there are other commercial options out there at a decent price....

48 rounds at 80 cents each, 6 clips at $1 each, round up for bando and cardboards, $50?

Econ 101 says you should charge the amount required for you to replace what you sell. Disclaimer: I never took Econ 101.

This is a pretty good assessment. Only modifier I would suggest is the clips. If USGI then a dollar, even a bit more is desirable. If they are out of later HXP, later than 72, they might be problematic!!

The HXP spam cans were $115 for 192 rounds so that would be $28.75 per bandoleer. That would be the floor for pricing. Since there is not anymore in inventory at CMP, I would think that it would be in the $40 - $50 range for a single bandoleer.

Some people have some USGI cans of belted 7.62 NATO that are original to the cans (desicant packs/cardboard). This is ammo meant to be used in our machine guns currently. A close look will show that the 4/1 mix is actually 4 PPU (head stamped .308 Win) ball and one LC tracer. That should tell you something.

Nothing against PPU it can be great ammunition............... but I'd like to see these USGI cans you are talking about. 7.62 NATO ammunition has be just that.......... NATO spec ammo...........so if PPU has a US military contract, it'd be marked differently......

So do you have some pictures of this I can check out?

PPU does make ammo for Nato countries, but I don't know about them being a USGI contractor.

Last foreign USGI ammo made was some Israeli made for the US Goverment under contract.
