    Classic arms has it for 99 bucks for 440 round tins. Scroll down near the bottom at the following website.

    I've bought from both of these shops and have had no problems with either.

    I highly recommend Ammo To Go for 7.62x54R ammo tins. They ship very fast. I've ordered from JG Sales before and while their service was great, they were VERY slow to process and ship (might get your ammo as a Christmas present).

    +1 for Ammo to Go--they ship when they say they'll ship.

    I just bought a tin at Dunhams for 129. I know you can get it elsewhere, but i carried it out of the store and didn't have to pay shipping or wait for it to arrive.

    I do not understand the fuss about corrosive or non corrosive. My gun is 84 years old. If corrosive ammo has not killed it yet, i doubt it will in my lifetime. Besides, I always clean my guns immediately after a shooting session anyways. Surplus ammo is cheap, and I find something nostalgic about shooting a vintage gun with period correct ammo.

    I third on ammunitiontogo.com. big John and the boys are on top of it, have tons of milsurp of all diff countries, and usually the cheapest.

    yeah, who cares about corrosive? just get a squirt bottle, pour in hot water, shoot down your tube, then you are done, just swab with a few oily patches. or heck, whatever you use to regularly clean out your bore, hoppes or whatever, will do just fine.

    JG's x54R prices for 440 rounds have only changed a few dollars since I ordered a green, oval can last fall.

    The fact that this ammo was recently (still?) available from S-Guide, despite the fact that SG stopped selling it for many months, is a good sign that a large ship full of ammo crates must have entered a US port recently after leaving the Black Sea or Baltic. Such a ship also seems to have brought over 7.62x39, based on increasing supplies of it.

    But will many more MN rifles be imported into the US?

    How is asking if there is noncorrosive surplus ammunition causing a fuss? It was a simple question.

    Thank you Toghn for the simple answer. Now I know.

    Let me clarify myself-
    I do not understand paying 3-4 times as much for say, Winchester brand non corrosive ammunition. Non corrosive surplus ammo would be great though- if it were available.

    Which was the point of the question. If you don't ask, how do you know?

    I have been shooting corrosive ammo in my com bloc pistols and rifles for almost 20 years. I just squirt them down with windex while at the range. When I get home they get cleaned like normal (hoppes and CLP). Shoot as much corrozive ammo as you can afford...just remeber to CLEAN your firearm right after!
