Is any of this .22 ammo collectible?

Anyone know if any of this has any collector value?

I understand that in today's market, even crappy .22LR bulk packs are being sold for exorbitant amounts of money. This isn't about that.

There are indeed ammunition collectors - those that seek old and/or rare cartridges. I know next to nothing about this.

Hence this thread.

All of this old 22 ammo was given to me by a friend. It was given to him by a co-worker.

I realized after I took that picture that two of those aren't like the others... Most are Winchester SuperSpeed. Two of them are Western SuperX

Wow!! Do some of those boxes bring back memories from back when I was a kid and mowed lawns or shoveled snow for ammo money.

Have zero idea what the price would be for a collector, but given the going ammo prices, anything has doubled in value.

Bet the stuff is still shootable by the looks of the boxes. Nice stash you got.

Thanks for the pics and a trip down Memory Lane..

Except for the solid green & yellow Short boxes in the second photo, everything there would probably be of some interest to ammo collectors. Not to say it would be worth a lot, but I wouldn't be surprised if someone offered you upwards of $5-$10 a box for those, and some MIGHT be worth a lot more than that. Of course, nowadays, you might get more than that from a desperate shooter/hunter, too!

When I run across stuff like that, I take it to a local gunshow; there are always a few guys with a bunch of old rimfire ammo/boxes, and they love to trade me modern rimfire ammo for the older ones, sometimes at 2x, 3x, or 5x the number of rounds (two to five 50-round boxes of the old stuff for a brick of new HPs). Not sure how the shortage has affected folks like this, but personally, I wouldn't consider shooting it until I had an idea of the value of what I was shooting.

EDIT: A little bit of searching, and I came up with an interesting site. Remember, this is what they are SELLING them for, not what they would pay for yours. However, it might give you a better feel for the values.

Scroll down near the bottom of this linked page to see several from your first photo:

http://www.ammolady.com/id55.html



This is the home page for that site:

http://www.ammolady.com/

Click all the links, one by one, and see what you can find. That first one I posted above was under the "Various boxes 4 of 6" link.

Cool stuff. Good luck!

Thanks for the replies, folks. I do appreciate it.

Right now - I don't really have the time to really take good photos of the boxes and put them up to sell / trade. Two little kids at home kind of eats into the "free time" just a bit. I'll check out that link above.

On the face of it, it seems that MOST of it is simply old ammo.

It sure would be nice to get $10-15 a box for some of it, though!

I'd hate to set up a Gunbroker or GunsAmerica account just to list these at auction. No control over if a serious collector was bidding or if it was someone just desperate for ammo. Plus, the fees associated with those auctions are quite high!

Some of those are pretty old boxes.
