    I have just recieved some of my grandfathers belongings from his gun cabinet (He passed away) the only firearm that I got was his old Double Barrel (Which I am very happy about) but with it I got about 250 rounds of 30-06 (Some reloads some new silver tipped) and about 37 rounds of 45 Colt, not sure what happened to the guns they were for, oh well. So what am I suppose to do with all this ammo, it seems like alot but I already asked everyone I knew and work with and no one has a firearm for these, what am I suppose to do with all of it.

    I recommend you sell your reloads for their component value.

    Any good handloader can disassemble your rounds for components. The 250 loaded .30-06 rounds likely contain $50 - $80 worth of bullets and brass. I've seen such loads sold at gun shows, marked "for components only". Folks buy them and take them apart. I've done it myself.

    I'll buy the colt from you. I need more as long as the price and shipping is reasonable. ;)
