    Thumbs down Say Goodbye to cheap Russian Ammo

    This thread is not meant to be a discussion regarding the merits of cheap Russian made ammo.

    With the unrest in Ukraine its looking like a ban on Russian imported ammo is going to dry up. And, the ammo situation is about to get worse.

    Yep, more trash from Vanderboegh and his clones. That "Russian" ammo is also made in several other countries. i fully expect every round of 7.62X39 ammo in the state of OK to disappear off the shelves today. By Friday OK scalpers will be peddling the stuff for $20 per 20 round box.

    Noooooo! Say it ain't so! Didn't even think about the effects on the cheap Russian junk. Be prepared for steel core steel cased Russian ammo to sell for equal or more than what Remington and Winchester make.

    Me either, and I refuse to feed in to the BS hype.

    I have shot thousands of rounds over the years, but not one single round of "cheap Russian ammo".
    No internal lock or magazine disconnect on my pistols!

    IF you shoot an AK or SKS - they're made for the "cheap Russian ammo" if you don't then it probably won't have any real affect on ya

    My AK speaks perfect Russian. Never had a problem with it.

    I can't even figure out hhow many rounds I've put through both my .45 and my Car 14, but none of them have been from the Evil Empire.

    Won't be affecting me, sucks for those it will be though. A friend gave me some when he sold off his rifles and I ran it through my SKS over the course of a few range trips. I can't think of any other time I've used the ammo.

    Just because you don’t shoot Russian ammo doesn’t mean banning importation will not affect you. The people who do buy it won’t stop shooting, they will buy the non-Russian stuff and in turn rise prices and lower availability for everyone.

    Yea! The cheap Chinese stuff, that sends multiple fireballs wizzing down the range and makes your barrel look like you poured mud down it, is much better!
