What would you ask for?


The item in question:  A decent quality nylon bandoleer loaded with 55 rounds of fresh brand name 12 gauge OO buckshot.

Given today's market, what would you ask for such a thing?

I'm thinking $120 is a good starting point, with potential to negotiate to $90-100. Of course, that's assuming generic Remchester buckshot, not Federal Low-Recoil or FliteControl.

+2 That seems about right in our current market.

Given that a 56-round bandolier is currently $11.95 on Amazon, and generic Remchester buckshot ranges between $4.79-$6.99 for a box of 5 rounds at Midway USA (when it's in stock, which is very seldom), the basic price should be in the $90-$100 range in general terms.

Given the current shortage of buckshot, you could probably tack on 50% at least to that price in many areas, and perhaps as high as 100% in areas where the 'ammo drought' is particularly severe. I don't know how your area is doing in that regard, but locally, I wouldn't hesitate to ask $150 for a full bandolier, then negotiate from there.

YMMV. Hope this helps.
