Where to get 7.62 surplus?
Not sure if this is in the right forum, since it's really not defensive ammunition related...
Have been looking to stock up on 7.62x39 - the cheap russian stuff you used to be able to buy for pennies a round - and can't find any suppliers. This stuff used to be dirt cheap. Now - either everyone is out of stock or the folks that do have it are charging an arm and a leg (compared to what it used to be). Is there some sort of shortage of the old surplus?
May have to break down and buy some 7.62 brass and some reloading dies...

maybe ammoman or other source. Don't know. What were ya shooting thru it,/ I have a source for Wolf ammo , let me know.

I placed an order today with www.ammoman.com for Wolf 7.62 X 39. He is sold out of FMJ rounds, but still has hollow point. This is the new, polymer coated stuff, not the old laquer coated.

Wolf, Silver Bear, Bernaul... Bernaul seems to be the best of the lot.
I think even Midwayusa has it.

I have used Wolf and found it Ok - having still not broken into my still packaged 2k reserve I am not sure of pricing - mostly I got mine at gunshows for about $80 for a case.
I do hear rumors tho that prices are on the climb - due IIRC to increases at source/factory.
Yes - I think as Euc says - Barnaul has a slight edge but otherwise Wolf should do fine - accepting the smell

FYI Bernaul, many others tell me, seems to get 2-3 MOA from a rest out of an SKS. That's pretty good for crap ammo out of a crap gun.

Has anybody tried any of the 154gr outta their AK's (or SKS) ?? --------
