Default Is this 7.62x39 Ammo Worth $100 for 2 Rounds?

Quote:
This auction is for 2 rounds of Rare Chinese 7.62x39 Short Range Sniper Ammo. This is very rare ammo with a copper washed casing and a blackened steel core projectile. The head stamps are legible showing (31, 65). This is live unfired rare collectible ammo. You might never see another set like this.

Granted I've never seen any 7.62x39 ammo called "sniper ammo."
This reminds me of seeing a seller listing a rock for sale on GunBroker, but I think the $1 rock was a better deal.

Any one seen this Chinese ammo before?

Short range sniper ammo is commonly known as regular ammo

"short range" and "sniper" in the same sentence is a oxymoron

Collectors ammo is only worth what someone is willing to pay.

Exactly. There probably is someone out there willing to pay $50 a pop for these things

Have no idea what it’s worth or what it is. Searching google for Chinese 7.62 doesn’t bring anything like it up at all.

Looks like plastic projectile stuff for indoor range practice without a backstop...

Proof loads maybe? Doesn't look like a standard bullet profile and the paint seems to be on the projectile and the case...

None of the above is legal advice, ese. All posts are the mere opinion of El Trollo. Think of abuelita before doing anything that might make you a criminal.

I have a box of these. Got bored and dipped my Chinese rounds in black paint. I mainly use them for reaching out to 100yds. I do use them in a AK sniper rifle so they must be legit.
