    My dad recently bought 400 rounds of 54R in a sealed tin. The tin was then inside a vintage wooden ammo crate with Polish markings. He paid like 50 bucks.



    The tin is like a gigantic sardine can, its awesome.

    I believe its the czech stuff some people have difficulty with others report none :dunno: I've never had a batch from any country where I could say it sucks, with the exception of an occasional odd round giving me trouble my mosins have ate everything I put through them.

    Well, you aren't going to find non-corrosive surplus ammo, so most everything will be fine for you as long as you clean it every you shoot.

    Just check.. maybe no be an issue, that is steel core stuff, make sure your range allows it before you buy it.

    Generally anythign with a steel casing will be harder to close the bolt and especially eject the case. Like squid said the Chek is what Ive experienced the problems with. Ive probably tried at least 10 different types and Chek is the only one I have had problems with.

    Ive been pricing stuff out for a bulk order on this stuff also.

    http://aimsurplus.com/acatalog/7_62x54R.html
    Polish stuff

    440rd x 2 = 880 rds
    $65.90 + $42 shipping = $107
    $.12 / rd



    http://www.sportsmansguide.com/cb/cb.asp?a=235122
    Polish stuff

    880rd
    Merchandise Total $64.97
    Shipping and Handling $19.99
    Shipping Adjustment $10.00 heavy/bulky charge applied per each for product
    Package Protection $0.99
    Grand Total $85.95
    $.09 / rd

    Now, I am not sure if the $10 heavy charge was added to the order, if the total comes to $95.95, it comes to about $.11 a round. :o

    yea, unfortunatly i dont have too much money to let go at this stuff, so im only going to get 440rds, instead of 880.

    still cheaper then my .35 reloads, thats crazy.
