They actually had some even cheaper non-nazi marked surplus in their March flyer

I just bought 100 pieces of reloadable brass from Buffalo Arms in Idaho for $29. Lee makes dies and bullet molds for this caliber, plan on a Midway order soon. Then I can have some cheap shooting ammo that doesn't kick as bad as that Nazi surplus stuff. That original military stuff hurts. Never did like those damn Nazis.:cuss:
Yeah, I know the Germans didn't invent the M95 but when they put their stinkin' swastika on the headstamp I figure I can cuss them as well as anyone when my shoulder hurts.
Sure can't blame myself for pulling the trigger can I?:D

Some of that surplus ranks as the hottest standard issue ball ammo of any military force during WWII. It chronos much hotter than 8x57JS or .30'06. And it HURTS. If 54R out of an M-38 hurts you, trust me you haven't experienced pain yet.
The good news is Graf & Sons and other outlets have reloadable brass now and even properly sized bullets (it's a wider 8mm from the 8x57JS)

They look cool
That's cause they are cool...:D
Others have pointed you in the direction of the ammo, both new and surplus. Not as cheap as some other surplus ammo, but the rifles are what, $75? Well worth it to my way of thinking.

Keep in mind that you need clips as well unless you want the rifle to be a single shot. The Nazi-marked ammo comes on clips which makes it a good deal.
