Default Original 38 AMU ammo

Anyone know of a reasonable price for a 50 round box of original 38 AMU ammo? I have a possible chance to acquire one but don't have the slightest idea of what it brings.

Thanks

The last sealed box of Federal 38 AMU that I sold went for $100 to a cartridge collector


Pricing is dependent upon how scarce that particular manufacturer's 38AMU is, the condition of the box, condition of the brass, etc.

Kind of like 357 revolvers, the cost is all in the details.

There were a couple of boxes on GunBroker about a year ago and the $100 figure sounds about right

Hello H Richard, Im working on getting a box from a fellow member.
$100 sounds OK. If you have a spare mag, pls. PM me. Mike
