The following is the latest 20 lots that have been written for the next auction (July 21) at Five Rivers Auctions where I work.
There are some commons in the listings, but there are also some better items, like the rimfire and inside primed lot.
The listings are constantly updated as I write up ammo for the catalog, and they can be found by going to fiveriversauctions.com/Aucti … _2012.html and clicking on the gavel marked Ammunition. Each week, there will be more added to the descriptions, though there are many photos that may appear without descriptions written yet.
