    I'm starting to get the itch to stock up on some surplus ammo for my Draco and others. Looking to buy a few cases/cans, so any suggestions for websites/deals that are ongoing would be appreciated. It seems this info changes daily, so post 'em here if you have stocked up recently and feel that you got a great deal. Looking to stock up soon.

    I just bought a case (Spam can) from ammoman.com a couple of weeks ago. My first internet ammo purchase. I noticed that the lower the ammo price, the higher the shipping cost. I checked a half dozen+ sites and they all seemed to be with-in about $10 of each other out the door. Watch for specials on shipping for the best OTD cost.

    Cheaperthandirt.com has recently been the cheapest with shipping to Florida, when they have the cheap stuff in stock - you have to check every week or so. Aimsurplus.com is pretty close as well. Right now Aim has cases of Yugo surplus for $215. As I recall it works out to being about $250 w shipping to Florida. If you want non-corrosive keep checking both sites for a month until they get wolf in.

    If you really want to stock up and buy 10,000 rounds or more, I'd call Century in Del Ray and whomever is importing RUAG into the Port of Tampa and see what type of deal you can get.

    +1 for guns deals. Here's a link straight to the Ammo charts. http://gun-deals.com/ammo.php?caliber=7.62x39&showall=true AimSurplus is about the best deal for Yugo surplus. The-Armory is 2 dollars cheaper but their shipping seems to be a bit high. I've order this from both of them. Cabela's has free shipping for orders of $99 or more. Use code WGIFTS to get it. SGAmmo has Ulyanovsk sealed tins with opener of 640rds FMJ for $125.95+$16SH also.

    It's very easy to clean after firing corrosive ammo, especially with an AK. Just run some hot, soapy water through or windex (anything with some diluted ammonia in it) and then clean as you normally would.

    +1 on the Yugo M67 surplus ammo (I bought mine from AIMSurplus). It's proven to be quite accurate from my rifle and my batch came from the mid 1990s, so the rounds were in great shape. It certainly works for any purpose I can imagine.

    Why ammonia? It isnt the ammonia that breaks up the corrosive salts, its the water. If you look, Windex doesnt even have ammonia in it these days. Hot soapy water followed by a regular cleaning is the normal routine. Ammonia is NOT needed in any way for cleaning corrosive residue

    You're right, the ammonia isn't helpful in removing the salts but it does help the water evaporate and not linger on a surface it could rust. Windex may not have ammonia in it anymore, but it still drys quickly...so you're right to point that out...ammonia is not important but quick drying is helpful. The same reason I would recommend hot water. If you dry things off real well, you could just use water, but I tend to go thw windex route as I don't have to be quite so meticulous and still avoid rust.

    Just got some from Ammoman - $249- 1,260 rounds. ( ONE CRATE ) SHIPPED

    Ordered from Aim before, but the shipping costs are pretty huge for me. For 84 boxes (1260 rnds), it costs $214.20 but shipping to my zip is $59.31 = $273.51 So I save $24.51 going through Ammoman. I'm in CA,they're in NJ, ordered on 11/11/11 and received on 11/18/11, UPS. Discrete brown box.

    Read here and there, supposedly there might be a chance the red sealant might mean it isn't corrosive, but I highly doubt that. Anyone confirm or deny this?

    Yes as far as I know all Yugo M67 ammo as well as all ComBloc Berdan primed military surplus M67 uses corrosive primers no matter what the year. I believe they still use them to this day. I found this thread interesting. It's what can happen if you don't clean you gun after using corrosive ammo. This forum also has a lot of threads about M67 ammo. http://www.akfiles.com/forums/showthread.php?t=95509

    http://www.centerfiresystems.com They have 640 rounds of new production, non corrosive 7.62x39 in a spam can for $139 I believe. And if I'm not mistaken it's $10 flat rate shipping, but you'd have to look it up. They have other deals on different types but almost everything I've seen from them is non corrosive.

    Unless you are planning long term storage instead of shooting it, you pay extra for the spam can and have the hassle of opening it.

    AIM or Sportman's guide regularly has Wolf or Brown Bear for ~$200/1000. SPG $10 off coupons and $20 shipping usually makes it the cheapest overall for me.
