Cal. .50 auction


#1

I must be missing something here. Maybe it’s the SL 42 h/s. Maybe the black tip. Maybe I need to bid on these.
Found these on an online auction, that ends today. 17 bids have bumped the price to $99. After commissions and shipping, the total price would kiss $150.
Considering I have a couple of boxes of assorted live rounds, some empties and about 200 reloaded dummies laying around, my net worth has improved exponentially.
Anybody see something about these that I need to be aware of?


#2

Perhaps it’s the remains of the “experimental tape belting”?


#3

Maybe its worth buying up some more of these from somewhere else cheap and selling them to make a profit. I could have bought a few at SLICS for prices nowhere near that. If I was in the USA I would really consider doing this to make money on the side.

The specialty may be that the 99$ bidder is a buddie of the seller…


#5

I have been buying small amounts of WWII era 50 BMG AP for $2.50 each.

a fool and his money…


#9

Maybe there’s an image of the virgin Mary somewhere in the tape residue on one of those bullets? Hey, if burned toast sells for so much, then…?
