Looking at the options for inexpensive surplus ammo for my recently purchased Egyptian contract FN49. Looking through the sites I usually browse I see three options so far. Late '70s production Romanian for 30 cents a round, '50s production Yugo for 30 cents a round or '80s production Yugo sniper for 35 cents a round. I'm assuming all are corrosive. I do have a box of Portugese stuff (FNM) that is supposed to be noncorrosive but I haven't been able to find any for sale just now. Any thoughts or experience?

The Yugo is some of the most accurate I have ever used in my Hakim, never used any of the Romanian so don't know about it.
Just be sure to clean with a water based cleaner then as normal for corrosive, clean the gas system and light oil and you shyould never have a problem.

I have some of that yugo sniper stuff, and I just placed an order from aimsurplus for some of that Romanian stuff. I'm sure I probably wont notice a difference in quality for just plinking things. However, there is a 53 grain difference in romanian and yugo sniper stuff. All of it is berdan primed though so I'm SOL on reloading.

All of it should work just fine. Buy it cheap and stack it deep. :evil:
