    $3 cheaper a case at Widener's: http://www.wideners.com/itemdetail.cfm?item_id=8435&dir=18|190|191

    They may, however, ship it in the wooden case, as it's listed at 68 lbs. per case. I don't know if SG does, or if they break it down, since it's listed at 300 rounds as the top quantity. You can count on SG for totally jacked-up shipping charges.

    At least there is a bit of 8mm still around. Last time I bought was a little over 100$ for a case of 1200 from Cheaperthandirt. Opened it to look at it, but haven't shot it - '52 or '55 Yugo stuff.

    $100 for 1200.

    Sigh.

    I remember when Century had a sale on Turkish 8mm for 3 cents per round.

    The ammo at Wideners is corrosive. The ammo at sportsmansguide is not. Worth the difference.

    SG has no clue. Quoting them as an authority is pretty funny, actually.

    All Yugo M75 is corrosive. Even aboriginal tribesmen in the remote Australian outback know this.

    Wrong. Its the exact same ammo. If they say its non-corrosive, they are wrong. Kind of like Classicarms calling their bulgarian 5.45x39 non corrosive.

    Its not all scams, some people just have no ****ing clue what they are selling.

    Takhtakaal,

    Hey, thanks for the tip, buddy! Next time I need to know if something is true or not, I'll try to find an aboriginal tribesman in the remote Australian outback!

    Do you think that he might be able to help my son with his calculus?

    By the way, you may want to spellcheck your name.

    Regards,
    Monadh

    Just one question, monadh, about your signature. Could you explain to everyone what you mean by "memfrica"?

    I've got a pretty good idea, but I'd like to hear it from you.
