    Iraq.

    Word on the street is that the Iraqis are now using (or being reissued...we destroyed thousands of them :uh:) Dragunovs and the USG is buying this up for them.

    Bastards :mad:

    I want my cheap ammo :mad:

    I saw AIM has a can of it for $70. Man, I'm glad I got a couple cases back when they were $40. Now I just need a Mosin.

    I just bought 300 for $40 a few weeks ago. I wish I could have afforded walk out of the fun show with the wooden crate w/ 4 tins.

    i had two tins, and shot about 75 rds out of it. still have plenty left. i dont shoot the mosin much because its a pita to carry in with my other shit, and im not shooting much anymore because of other ammo costs.

    I check in with Ammunitiontogo.com and they said they should be getting more ammo of the surplus 54r variety in mid to late October. I guess the summer shooting rush has killed the supply. I was looking at getting a mosin but can't justify it now with the ammo cost's.

    Wow, glad I stocked up from Sportman's Guide when I did. I have 2000+ rounds, won't be running out anytime soon.

    Well it's a bunch or reenactor friends, but my friend just got in a M1910 Maxim and it's way to clean. PLus my friend just setup his 1919 for 7.62x54r, so it'll probably get a shake down.
