Radway Green in bandoliers

I stopped by a local pawn shop that had been closed for about two years to look around today. The new operator (not the owner) had been unpacking boxes that were in the back room and had put out some ammo that was never on the shelves before. There were some bandoliers of Radway Green there and I was wondering what these are worth. I have plenty of 7.62x51 to shoot, but was thinking about having a bandolier full for the novelty.

Do it and shoot it, buy more - repeat!

I bought a bunch (or perhaps a bunch and a half) of Radway Green 25 or so years ago. Unfortunately, not in bandoleers. My bottom line: It was great stuff. The Brits bought the best for their army.

I know the RG is good to go as far as shooting ammo, but what is a fair price for a bandolier full?

They were asking $98

No more than 50 cents.

35 would be better...

No sale at that price.

Novelty, yes... but it isn't worth the asking price.

New Federal Boxer primed .308 is 50cents/rd at Palmetto...if the novelty of GI ammo in bandoliers counts?...I might go close to 50cents/rd.

Is it a 50rd bandolier? If so the $2/rd is criminal!!!

I'd pay that much for the 1970's Indian in bandos. Still looking for the 2A1 to go with mine.
