With the recent rise in value of all things gun related, I find myself wanting to cash in a few chips. This seems to be a hot topic and one that stirs up some anger for many. The question I propose...how much mark up is too much?

Looking at ammoseek I'm finding nothing under 65 CPR for steel and as high as 89 CPR. Anyhow, obviously none of us are buying at that price but if I'm asking say 45 CPR am I a piece of shit for doing so? Not long ago I let go of some brass 9mm for $20/box. It was profitable but as I see replacement costs rising I'm thinking about bumping up my price if I sell anymore.

As far as 5.56, I've seen some neck bearders looking to flip academy packs for double what they paid. I'm more in the cost plus 50% area but am I greedy or smart ? Anyhow I wouldn't be asking if I didn't have thick skin, so I welcome the comments including the "you're a piece is shit" responses.
You can always put your ammo up for sale on GunBroker for what you paid for it as a staring bid. You likely will get much more for it and no one can accuse you of scalping, at least not reasonably, since you offered it at the original price and bidders brought the price up.

I was laid off back in June. So while I don't want to sell anything, I am at the point where I don't have a choice. Do I keep my "stuff" and not eat and/or lose my house, or do I start selling what I have until I find a job. Unfortunately, I have to sell. The only bright side to that is when I moved to Texas I went a little overboard in the firearm department...well, if it's even possible to go overboard. I have one of my guitars listed too. It sucks, but the alternative sucks more.

Been there before. Was hard to part with most of that stuff, but like you I had no choice.

At least you are selling in a good market. I had to sell when prices were down.

Hope you find work very soon.

That's a tough spot and it comes down to do what you gotta do. Most of us have been there to some extent.

Price stuff at what the market will bear and run with it.
