    I just noticed a box of Tula 7.62x39 ammo at a gun show today. The unopened crate, directly from Tula, said 1000 rounds.

    The guy opened the box, and we counted eight rows of six, (that's 48) boxes of 20 rounds.

    You do the math. :confused:

    Not positive, but I think they orient a coupla boxes differently in the crate to fit those last 40.

    The top layer of boxes was 6x2. One of the lower hidden layers had to be 7x2, with the boxes stood upright.

    Damn. :banghead: I was a C student in math, but you'd think that the guy at the table would have known that.

    Yes, Soviets can do math. They might still use slide rules, but they can do it.
