    I picked 30 rounds of this stuff up at a local gun shop for $4.99 for 15. The only downside I see to it, is that it is berdan primed. But it is non-corrosive, and 2002 production. If it shoots well, I will be picking up some more.


    I also picked up some old-school US G.I. bore cleaner, for cleaning corrosive primer salts out.

    The shop also had a VZ 52 in 7.62x45, I had never seen one before. I actually went there to look at Mausers. They had some, but for $200-$300.

    I shoot a clip or two of commercial x54r after I'm done shooting my milsurp. It really helps clean the bore out.

    I also have a couple ancient cans of that milky bore cleaner :bigok:
