    No more South African surplus ammo

    Say goodbye to any thoughts of any more South African surplus ammo making it here. Not that there has been much lately, but it was nice to dream about some more making it over here.

    What is the next option for surplus .308? Thankfully, I stocked up on some of the South African last year, but when that's gone...

    We have been able to keep Pakistani milspec surplus in stock lately, but not in large quantities seen in the past by other countries like Port, SA, and Britains Radway Green which are capute for some time now.

    The pakistani looks good [ not stored improperly like some of the Indian surplus we've seen ], and shoots well enough to be able to practice with it.

    I've got 6K of Portuguese nato surplus on hand, and will not shoot it up as I can not replace it.

    I think the South African gov. probably wants to sell it them selves, and cut out the middle man. I like the quote about them 'flooding the market'. I know it was around, but I don't think it was all that popular.

    The SA surplus was good ammo, reliable and fairly accurate for generic ball.

    I'd buy all I could find if I came across it.

    We may see some country in the future standardize on the 223 cartridge, and then dump their 308 on the open market as others have done in the past [ to our benefit ].

    One can hope anyway.
