    $100 for turkish for 1400 rds..
    $45 for 750 rds. of greek, and it's the proper weight bullet for yugo or german mauser.


    $30 for 380 rds romanian (for turkish mausers) from www.aimsurplus.com

    J&G has 700 rds. of turkish for $30.

    As a warning some of that Turkish 8mm runs hot. The nickel/silver(?) jacketed bullets are the hot rounds and are made for use in MG's. Still safe to run through your mauser though it will just kick a little more than the standard FMJ round.

    turkish rounds are "hot" they will fuck up an MG or a G43, use only in a k98

    Runs good in the MG-42, 10,000rnds and not a problem yet. Although some ammo fails to fire, but oh well.

    my buddy who has a class III says turk surplus is a good way to fuck a good MG 42 or 34. and G43s wont eat turk unless you go single shot. Yugo is where its at!

    Cheaper Than Dirt (WWW.cheaperthandirt.com) has it too:
    The caveat I heard about the Turkish ammo is that German/Yugo Mausers are set up for a different bullet weight so you may have to adjust your sights. I bought 500 rounds on stripper clips in blue bandoleers. Mine shoots great and came on target quickly in my Yugo M-48.
    (BTW, hold tight, the gun has a healthy kick)
