    I *think* Ammoman might have had that a month or two ago, but I don't recall. Might want to check there.

    I might have a couple of the 10rd boxes somewhere if you can't find any. Let me know, maybe we could swap something or ?

    Here's a shot of some of the stuff railroader's talking about; East German plastic-core (steel jacket). Your range may have regulations against steel-jacket ammo as well, if that's what's driving this.

    I bought a 1320 rd. case, back in about 1994, from a place called cole's cartrige's, It was east german, was in ten round blister packs. Work's good, in my norinco ak. Would not cycle any of my SKS's. I haven't seen it advertised, for years

    FYI, the plastic cored East German 7.62x39 is designed for AKs, not SKSes. I won't cycle an SKS, but is supposed to cycle an AK. I haven't tried it in the latter so I don't know for sure, but my SKS wouldn't run with it. It's still fun to shoot -- about like a .22.

    Definitely treat it, or any East Bloc milsurp ammo as corrosive.
