I need some too bluejack, ya got me thinking when ya put up this post and I noticed I really didn't have much at all, and I've got more Mausers than anything else. I think I'd better be getting some too.
I got a case comming,,, WOW last surplus stuff I'd bought was years ago from Century and the packing reciept was still in the crate and I paid $48 + 4.35 USPS shipping!!! Far cry from the 278.00 delivered I had to give for this case of Yugo ammo today!!!
Glad I got it though, It IS HARD to find 8mm surplus in stock most everywhere right now!! Coles, Samco, and gunbroker was the only places I found it out of maybe 35 places I looked. Well,, I did find a couple others but they were like 400+ then shipping,,, WTF???I generally get my ammo from Target Sports, there prices are competitive and free shipping on case lots, acessorys and other stuff is where they get ya shipping wise. But my "go to" for ammo lately.
Samco had the 1k loose packed crates of Persian(Iran) 50's stuff but I've never used that before and have had issues with ruptured cases with other mid eastern ammo before, how about you guys,,, ever used it?? There brass seems to be more brittle. If it's OK it's 219 there,+ whatever shipping??? 70+ lbs, so 55-60ish, a guess. And everything on gun broker was way higher, as it usually is and with only a couple bulk lots, single 400 rnd., I think it was, tins and some loose stuff. There was some turkish cupro nickle bullet ones in bandoleres but that stuff scares me, it's pretty hot and one of the ones that has the brittle cases. From my experiance. Better have a nice tight, strong gun for that stuff it's pretty hot stuff!!
Damn Blue Jack if your getting better prices and that ammos good,,,maybe I can sweet talk ya into possibly gettin me some from your sources, if I can scrounge up the bucks and your willing that is. I don't really want to get more but if it's getting that damn hard to find, it might be a good call on my part. After all,, I do have 5,, 8mm Mausers + 2 ,,6.5x55 Sweeds, 1,, 7x57 Ven, and 2,, 308's , I'm Mauser Poor!!! Damn haven't got all that much x55 eaither, more ammo to be sure I have for the future before it's a $100 a box!!! GEZZZZZ!!!!
This hobbie is getting as expensive as my ex wifes for Christs Sake!!! DOWWWW!!!

Blue Jack if this guy is a dealer PM me the contact info and I can get in touch,, never know he might possibley have some surplus 6.5x55 Swead sitting on the shelf somewhere, sure could use some of that. I'm good on the x54 for now, thanks for the heads up.
yugo 7.62x54r are $0.10/round.
He is big importer dealer and not sure about giving out the info I had ask him first. don't want him mad of me
If your friend is willing, at $0.10/round I'd sure be interested in 800-1000. Yugo is great stuff!
I have a daughter. I tell her, "911 is what you dial after you're raped. 1911 is what you should have before they try."
well let you know tomorrow and PM you about the info
