Two things:

1) Is there any chance in hell I'll find some stripper clips along with the surplus Bulgarian LB that I ordered from Wideners?

2) If not, does anyone know where I could get a couple reliable ones?

I had some Bulgarian Light Ball that came with them. Don't worry, they don't work.

I don't know where you can get reliable clips for a mosin. In fact, im doubtful they even exist.

Haha, they don't work? What the hell?

Edit:
This guy has some working ones. Apparently they're Finnish surplus

Tapco has them. I bought a bunch of originals a year or so ago.

Check Classicarms.us as well, they make very good brass reproductions. The brass ones are good because they bend more than steel, makes them easier to use.

I got some clips last year from ammunitiontogo.com, they had a number 10 in a double circle on the back (I think that means Bulgarian). They work quite well, but I foolishly only ordered a ten-pack to see how well they worked, and when I went back to get more they had disappeared.

The "good" ones should work, but there's a "technique" to using them.

Someone has a picture of it, but basically it involves lining all the rims up, then lifting the top cartridge bullet tip up and using the rim under your thumb as a ram of sorts to push them all in.

Did it a few times at the range but can't imagine a solider doing this in the heat of battle.

Jude Law makes it look so easy.

Update:

I ordered 20 of those original Finn stripper clips, so if anyone wants to buy 10 off of me for $1 each plus shipping (and any merchant/PayPal fees) then let me know.

Edit:
Yeah SGW42, I actually found the thread with the illustration when looking around for where to buy these things. Looks doable to me.

I find that pretty much all stripper clips will work better if you hold the bullets and twist them to loosen the clip up a little bit. Some that didn't previously work might if you twist them.

Thanks for the tips.

One of the tricks of using the clips is to take the first round and lift it up. With the nose pointed up, use the rim of the top round and push down the rest. It takes a bit of practice but once you get used to it it's pretty easy.

numrich arms has repro clips that work. i bought one because i was making an order, and was hoping to find one that worked. then i bought 20, haha.
They look different too, no little tab, just a smooth round cut. They work great.

Oh, and if it helps any, I've found out that the Finnish ones seem to work the best.

I bought several hundred round of Bulgarian Heavy Ball that came on stripper clips. They have the Ishy marks, nicely blackened, they work well. The guy at the show had the packed ammo for $.75 per 10 round bundle, bought what he had.
