Are you looking for current cost or cost a few years ago?

Armor piercing is sought after and worth something like $2 a round last I heard. I would expect tracers to be worth less due to them not being allowed at many ranges, but I guess I don’t have a useful answer for you.

Is this ammo loose or in 20 round boxes? Lot numbers or case head maker/dates?

USGI .30 Cal. API will bring a premium if in original sealed boxes, $5+ per round.
Substantially less, like 50%, if foreign made, or loose misc. US made rounds
About 10 years ago a forum member opened a 1951 sealed spam can of .30 Cal. clipped FA API
He sold some of the clips back then for, IIRC, around $50 for 8 rounds with the clip.
The API The CMP sold, if memory serves, was loose rounds of FN.
I don't think the FN API was a tracer round, but it would "Flash" when it hit something!

Check GunBroker for completed auctions. Asking prices are north of $5/round. CMP sold it for around $2 IIRC. The headstamp was FN55 and the primers I tested were non-corrosive.

The first CMP offering was 100 round packs for $265. The last they had was 20 loose rounds for $70 plus $6.95 shipping, so just shy of $4/rd. That was in early 2014.

Gee whiz guys, look over at Aim Surplus, 20 Round box of 150 gr FMJ 30-06 for $21.95 and marked for M1 Garand. I just ordered and received 120 rounds. $17 shipping via UPS. Its not made in USA and not made in Russia what difference does it make just for targets?

And what does this have to do with the OP's question?
