    I tried out some Czech 7.62x25 (bxn 1-53) that I got at a gunshow. Lots of FTF, some would take 2, 3, 4, or 5 firing pin strikes before going off. Some were total duds, some that required multiple strikes also were hang fires. Who sells good non-corrosive 7.62x25? :confused:

    Sellier & Bellot is good stuff. I've fired 400 rounds, not a single FTF, and the brass all looks good. It runs $11-$15 for a box of 50 here in NW AR. Winchester is the same thing thing as S&B, made in the same factory from my understanding. This ammo is non-corrosive.

    Makarov.com has some 7.62Tok hollowpoints, but I've not fired any, so I can't vouch for them.

    Be careful with surplus ammo. By definition, it isn't reliable, but some of it is dangerous. The CZ52 is a well designed pistol, and can take a reasonable amount of abuse, but some of the surplus - Romanian from what I hear - is actually for a submachine gun, and is quite a bit hotter than standard. Expect a second strike every other magazine or so in my experience with surplus.

    As was already said:
    I bought a case of Winchester, that is now almost gone.
    I recently bought a couple boxes of S&B.
    I don't shoot my 7.62x25 pistols all that much. I use one in a shooting sport I compete in that usually requires like 10 rounds of pistol ammo, so buying a box or two from now on ought to suffice.

    Winchester white box is good target ammo but a little anemic for what the pistol was designed for. $7.50 per box

    The S&B is perfect. $7.95 per box

    Stay away from the surplus. It is not cheap, sometimes dangerous and always corrosive. at $8.95 to $9.95 per box

    The Chinese Norinco ammo is supposed to be good but from what I understand it is rarer than hens teeth.


    I wish Wolf would add 7.62x25 to it's lineup.
