What is a new box of .44 Auto Mag worth now a days? Saw a guy asking $90 for 45 rounds but had someone else reply people have gotten $8 a round for them.  Guess it is whatever people are willing to pay but  there is nothing out there to compare with.

Cor-Bon is the only manufacturer making any ammo now days, but I'm not even sure they are still making it? I have found misc. boxes of Cor-Bon here and there for around $30- $40 for a box of 20 rounds. But yes, pretty much what someone is willing to pay!

That's a box of Norma in your link. It's a collectible. I'd rate that differently from, say, a new box of Cor-Bon which is more available and I think worth only what C-B's current pricing is. They still have it listed for sale at about $35 per box.

Cor-Bon is, as Omie said, the only "new" AM ammo out there. The other main one is the out of production CDM. But there's a good bit of it available, so it has some collector value too but not as much as Norma. Supply and demand in other words. There're also another couple or so old brands too.

Super-Vel I believe, but Lee could weigh in on that. And Sandia and Lomont.

There's even some rare OWS Auto Mag ammo - Old West Scrounger. I have a box. I've seen it on GB go for almost 3 x what I paid. Real colorful graphics on the box. It's a novelty with only "cowboy" ballistics.

So $60-$75 for a box of 50 isn't bad then: guess I've paid $35 for a box of 20 .50AE for my DE and that comes out to more. What would be a fair mark-up on a box of Norma since it's a collectable like you said: 20-30%?

There's no way to answer that. It's what a willing buyer will pay and that changes constantly. The best answer is to research it on GB. The ammo comes up every now and then. And you'll find discrepancies in sale prices. Personally however, I've never owned any Norma AM ammo.

Here is an auction that has been running on GunBroker for a while.  I know nothing about the compamy or their products.
 
Has anyone tried them?

Yes!!!  The owner's name is Robert & you will have no problem at all with any of his ammo.  He will load just about what ever you want ie powder/bullet.  His biggest problem right now is getting components.  Brass for the Auto Mag for one!!! As his last 100 he had to get from me.  If you have your own Brass it will bring the cost down.  He is meticulious at his job.  His wife hands weighs every charge.  I trust his ammo in all my guns.  Fact is I have 4 test rounds to fire this weekend for him.  2 rounds loaded to norma original loads, and 2 rounds with true blue with Luc's data.  Just to see if it functions my gun.  After that I'll have him do 50 more for the crony!!  If you need his number just go to his web site: http://americancustom.tripod.com/  but know this he likes to talk ammunition!!!   If you have some uniuqe ammo you need loaded, he most likely can do it!!!!  Hope this helps..

Hi Larry, I'm curious to see what you think about the load for the TrueBlue.
You made me wonder now, do you know what exactly was in the original load from Norma??

Thanks,
Luc.

I do not know what the original Norma was laoded to or with, but Robert does.  I told hin he sould join the site, that way he can participate and get some answers to questions he has all the time.  Today he wanted to know if there are some who load the 357AMP with a 180gr bullet??   Most of what I hear is the 125gr and the 158gr.  Have not heard too much on the 180gr.  If anyone has any info on that please chime in!!! "Lee"   Hopefully I will get to test fire the rounds tomorrow morning, before the wife goes to bed!!!!Confused

I think if you get the ammo for $2.00 per round that's average, and anything less is a pretty good deal.
