Theres a guy on ebay selling 2016 pack date British 24hr rations. He's asking 300usd plus w/e shipping would be, it's in the US. Fair deal or a rip?

Sounds pretty fair to me.
Over here a full case goes roughly for 140€ +80€ shipping so it adds up quickly.

I've seen the same seller selling those for $180 plus $70 shipping about a month ago. Wish I had the cash at the time to jump on it. At $300+ shipping is an ok deal as most go for aound $50ea here state side.

10 come to a case for the standard ORPs, typically menus 1-10 or 11-20 with the current menu list on a sheet of paper inside. The change their menus constantly, damn near every batch contents are different.

The menus rotate quarterly, so every 3 months about.

The offer the person offered me was 300.00 plus shipping, so I assume with a box that size and weight, it would be close to if not more than 400+ total. I don't buy these in bulk and flip them into making any profit. Mostly I buy these and use them to trade for rations that are harder for me to buy here in the US. Or I simply use them at drill, vs choking down an MRE and not going for a few days if you catch my drift.

Yep I definitely catch your drift lol. I bought my box to use/trade as well, plan on doing some camping and these things would be great to take with. I definitely think they are better than most US MRE menus, that Chicken Massaman from Menu 8 is one of the best things I've ever had from a retort pouch, it's so tasty.

Out of curiosity, do you know of a site where you can get this kind of pricing?
