    Just showed up on his website today, Lithuanian battle pack NATO spec 7.62x51 and reloadable brass.

    $515/1000 delivered. Getting higher all the time. It is painful but at least this is NATO stamped reloadable brass that's worth a dime each so that eases the pain some.

    If you been shopping this isn't bad given the current market. It's fantastic ammo.

    Couple cases on the way to me, you can have the rest :)

    Even handloads with good bullets are starting to get expensive in that caliber.

    Personally, I think the PRVI Partisan, in the battlepacks, about the same price, is the better deal. I don't think the Prvi Partisan brass is annealed or as thick as surplus 7.62 x 51, so I would only use it in rifles with the tighter commercial range headspacing. Austrailian surplus is also out there at about the same price.

    7.62 NATO brass -- $150 / 1000 / 5 reloads = $0.03 per load (I stocked up on several 1000 a few months ago)
    147 gr M80 projectiles -- $80 / 1000 = $0.08 per load (I stocked up on several 1000 a few months ago)
    CCI34 primers -- $0.03 per load
    IMR 4895 -- $0.12 per load

    Handcrafted 7.62 NATO = $0.26 per cartridge

    I find reloading to be cathartic...
