So to go with my new M44 I bought a couple hundred rounds of cheap 147gr. surplus ball ammo. The kind that comes in the paper packs of 10 with the twine.
Anyways, upon opening the paper I have discovered a few rounds that have cracks running down the neck of the casing. None have made it so loose that the bullet has fallen out, but a couple are close.
I'm thinking I probably shouldn't fire off the cracked cases. I'll prolly go through all the ammo I bought and find out how many are like that and dispose of all of them properly.
Anyone else had this problem with surplus 7.62x54R?
