    Is Hotshot 7.62x39 Ammo good stuff? I am looking to pick up several thousand rounds and want to know if this stuff is on par w/GT, Wolf, etc.

    I don't like Wolf - pretty dirty, so I'd like to get some feedback on the Hotshot:

    Well hell, Im gonna order a few cases of it. I just called Century and got an honest sounding subject on the phone. He advised that the 7.62x39 Hotshot is actually Romanian Military Ammo under the Hotshot name. He gave me his word that it is great stuff and he advised he likes it much better than GT and wolf...

    At .143 cents a round its the best deal going at this time... It's on sale for 125.87 per 700 round case - the site does not show the sale but the $125.87 price is good through April.

    I believe the Hot Shot ammo is made in Bosnia by Igman. It's just renamed for Century.
