Pictures of boxes and ammo are a good selling point, and noticed that in March the 7mag Eldorado's were $40.00 a box plus shipping.

So I am just testing the waters for now but will have pictures and a full break down to come hopefully this weekend. I recently inherited 18 boxes of old weatherby ammunition. 9-.257 8-.300 1-.224. some are reloaded with a round or two missing from testing the batch and some are still new (primer has the colored seal). Since I am no longer in possession of the rifles that went with these guns (long blood pressure rising story) I have no need for this ammunition.

To be honest I don't know. I was actually expecting there would be more chatter on here so I could get a few recommendations.

If you are asking for a valuation I know there are some very knowledgeable members on here who could probably help you out... I bet when they see this you might get some estimations

The reloads won't be worth much. It would be helpful if you told or take pics of what the bullets weights of the ammo is, and pics of some opened boxes to see what kind of shape the ammo is in.

Ok so I'm a week late on the update but here we go. So upon further inspection I think I have figured out what are the reloads and what are not. I'm assuming the color sealed primers are the originals and the non colors are the reloads. I will break down everything per caliber and then weight

.300 weatherby Factory load-180 gr with green primer seal I have 100 rounds



.300 weatherby reloaded 180 gr nosler I have 56 rounds. 2 boxes are opened with two missing from test fires I'm assuming with the third box still sealed.

Now on to the .257 weatherby! For these they are possibly almost all reloads. Also unlike the .300 reloads these were reloaded by my grandpa. HOWEVER there are some rounds that have primers with the indent of NP on them without any colored seal which is the same primer as some of the color sealed primers. The other indent I have ran into is rws. Pictures are uploaded in the order they are mentioned.
.257 factory load 87 gr with black primer seal. I have 20 rounds
.257  possible reloaded 87 gr I have 59 rounds. 57 with np on the primer 2 without. 1 round fired as test on 11-13-79 (written on bullet sleeve)
.257 reloaded 100 I have 59 rounds. 7 with np on primer 52 with out. One round fired as test on 11-13-79 (written on bullet sleeve)

.257 weatherby continued!.....as always pictures are uploaded in the order they are mentioned.
.257 factory load 117 gr with green primer seal I have 2 rounds
.257 reloaded 117 gr I have 30 rounds

Onto the .224!!
So with the .224 there was actually two boxes but the ammunition got consolidated due to the condition on the second box. This happened before I was planning on getting rid of the ammo. The .224 has three kinds of bullets, 21 rounds total.
.224 with maroon primer seal and rws indent on primer with no bullet seal- 11 rounds
.224 with blue primer seal and np indent on primer with blue bullet seal-5
.224 with blue primer seal and no primer indent with black bullet seal-5

224king would know about the 224 ammo, but any of that reload ammo is worth very little. Very few people will buy or use other people's reloads, (too many unknown factor's, safety frist).

+2 on what Catskinner said.  About the only good thing the reloads will be good for is to get the brass, and that obviously depends on how many times they have been reloaded.

Well any suggestions on who might be interested in the factory loads or even the boxes and the reloads?
Title: Re: Vintage Weatherby Ammo

your best bet would likely be an online auction of some kind(ex. gunbroker etc) maybe find someone interested in the boxes and old factory ammo.
