    Do you ever buy from Cheaper Than Dirt - America's Ultimate Shooting Sports Discounter

    I normally buy by the case and have had a lot of luck with them

    Yes I have been to many sites for ammo. This just happened to be a deal that really is a deal as the personal defense stuff is usually super expensive.

    This stuff was 2/3 off the list price. That's amazing in today's times.

    FR. Chuck. Instead of meeting for Apple Pie, we need to go shoot a few rounds, Brian in Woodstock.

    I wonder what the round looks like. There isn't any information on it.

    Here is a site with an everyday price.

    Guess everyone is getting ready for the end of the world in 2012 to fight off the mobs of zombies or what ever it will be.

    The local survivor groups stock up on 22 ammo, says that will be the one to keep and use after society ends.

    But yes, I normally shoot down around the Farmers Market near the airport. Don't shoot as much as I used to

    Lol. Lets face it the .22 is for hunting small animals when you need to eat. Should you use your large caliber weapon it tends to make them explode.

    I have 2 types of 7.62X39. One is Norinco, copper colored case and the other is Wolf, green enamel. Both shoot fine. Looks like a short M-14 round which is 7.62. Had Black Friday at Hi Caliber in Woodstock GA. 7.62X59 Mosin Nagant WWII rifle, re arsenaled for $80

    I know what the 7.62x39 looks like but on the website there wasn't a picture nor description of what type other then "police" ammo. It didn't say what grain it was.

    I have a personal preference for brass ammo. But that's just a personal thing. I know many people that have shot the wolf ammo and never had a problem (steel case). Its just a personal thing.

    Im sure what they are selling is decent ammo on that site. Just not sure about all the specs.

    Actually, there are 6 pictures of it so I'm not sure if you were looking at the right stuff. It looks like Wolf ammo and it's 123 grains.

    I'm not too worried about it, for $209 shipped, some friends and I just ordered a bunch of it to burn up at the range.

    Police ammo? I guess they use AK 47's for police work. Some of my ammo looks just like that. Not sure you can get brass case. This stuff is so cheap, I'd never reload it.

    You can't reload steel. Once fired the case is deformed. You could never get it back into shape again.

    Actually, it doesn't say Police ammo... it says "7.62x39 MILITARY GRADE"... and I agree, the cost of 7.62x39 new makes it senseless to consider reloading this caliber. On top of that, we're talking about AK's here... they have no problem with the steel casing.

    Just be sure to clean everything when your done with water based solvent or windex for the barrel. Then lude liberally when finished.

    That's OK. Its just good to see discussions. Since I started the thread I don't mind if it morphs. We can all learn something from one another.

    That is always a good thing ;)

    I didn't expect it to turn this way or else I would have started my own thread. I was only adding to this one since it was a good deal.

    We got our shipment delivered to us at work today. The ammo looks the same as Wolf. I'm looking forward to trying it out.

    Also, thanks for the advice but it's Non-Corrosive so there is no need for the water or Windex trick on this. It's new, not surplus. I have passed up fantastic deals on surplus simply because of this reason... the way I see it, there is no need to be using corrosive powder these days.

    For those interested in the deal going at Ammoman on the 7.62 x 39 "military grade" ammo there are photos of exactly what you are buying. It looks identical to the green steel case Wolf ammo that we've seen for years. It just comes in a white box instead. I actually have some of this ammo I've had for years. For all I can tell it is identical to the Wolf ammo. It has always worked well for me. I still have about 500 rounds of it or more.
