    Is This Ammo a Good Buy?

    I have a friend that is moving away from the gun side of life and is unloading a lot of his ammo. Are these good prices/cartridges?

    1) 75 boxes (3,750 rounds) of Sellior & Bellot 9mm for $500

    2) 20 boxes (1,000 rounds) of Winchester SuperX .22 LR for $25 (says I can use this in both rifles & pistols)

    Thanks!

    6.66 a box of 50... That is a good price.

    The .22 is so-so. Not bad,but not great either.

    I've never heard of Sellior & Bellot- is that a respected brand?

    I would pick up the 9mm if I had the money, .22 prices are going up as well and it's a fair price. I have shot S&B many times without any problems. It's still cheaper to reload 9mm vs. buying from your friend, but if you plan on shooting factory ammo for a while go for it.

    They've been around for over 100 years. I shot better than 500 rounds through my .45. Never had a problem. It's inexpensive and shoots well.

    I think the .22 is a little high, you can get 1000 rnds of new for $24;
    though there is no tax.

    excellent price on the S and B. they shoot pretty well. never had a problem with shooting them on glocks and 92FS.

    Would the age of the 9mm ammo matter? The .22? How long would ammo like that last?

    Heck, buy it just to save the brass...

    But S&B is good stuff, and that is a great price for the 9mm.

    I've shot surplus 9mm ammo that was head stamped 1953 and it shot fine.
