Default Question on fair Value of ww2 m2 Ap ammo

I am needing to ask the fair value of a few ammo items that I have. Im finding myself in a situation that Im having to sell any extra ammo that I have. i was hoping to find out what rounds of LC 44 M2 AP are bringing now a days? All the rounds I have are in minimal good condition, no corrosion that I have seen. Ammo looks good. Not good with pictures but can send them if anyone wants. I just want to offer them for a fair price. Thank you in advance.

pulled 30 cal 163 gr AP bullets from WW2 and Korean War sell for $1.00 each now

Loaded WW2 AP not much more, but depends on how it is packaged or in WW2 clips

The highest price paid I've seen for WWII AP M2 is when it's in good condition, sealed, original boxes. Collectors will pay $35-$40 per box. If it's loose rounds, it's more like $1 per round as collectors are not really interested, and shooters aren't so much either, being corrosive.
Korean War era/50s non corrosive AP is going for quite a bit more in any configuration, including loose, min. $2 per/rnd. Sealed 192 rnds. clipped in spam can $500-$600

Ok thank you. That info in much appreciated. Its loaded into ww2 era bandoleers but sadly someone has robbed the en blocks. I bought it to replace with my ww2 SA clips but just never felt like doing that and pretending thats how it came.

I'm not sure but I'll bet they'll fetch a bit more then one dollar a round. Even with being corrosive, in this market, I could see them at least what non corrosive ball is going for. If you're looking for a quick sale, price them accordingly. Never really understood the whole corrosive is bad thing. I have no problem shooting corrosive if I can find a deal on it. Good luck.

If you're trying to sell them on the CMP board, probably $1/rnd. If you are looking to sell in the open market (gun broker, public market, etc....) at $2 or more /rnd.
