Ammunition to Go has some good deals, too! (And they're local! Well, to me anyway.)

Oh my, they've got the same Bulgarian surplus at the same price that I bought in 1997.  Will that stuff never go away?

Somehow, I have a feeling that they are not selling much of it.

As for Bulgarian HardBall, never. Go and get some Wolf HP. GOOD STUFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 My baby doesn't like the hardball(not hot enough?), but works absolutely 100% with the Wolf.

Bulgarian FMJ not hot enough?  You're not shooting the same stuff I bought years ago.  That stuff, in the 9 out of 10 times it fired, was the hottest stuff I shot.  The problem was misfires.  It is unreliable.  Ten years ago it shot 9/10th's of the time, but the stuff I still have left shoots about 7/10's of the time, which means that in ever magazine full I have a misfire once or twice.  For plinking it's aggravating, but for defending your life with, it's suicidal.  There is no way you would want to stake your life on it. 

Also, a few paper packets of 16 rounds had some of the infamous 3 * 10 52 headstamp, which are powerful enough to blow barrels to pieces.  I see that Kirby's original article is gone now, but it was chilling. When I realized I had one of those rounds, I fired it just to see what happened.  It went off with a huge fireball.  I never shot another one marked with that headstamp.  I went through all the paper packets I had and found about 40 rounds from that dangerous 3 * 10 52 run, and I discarded them at the hazmat turn-in (they had a bin for ammunition).  I've been slow to fire the rest of that tin full of ammo, and I still have a couple of hundred rounds left after all these years.

Yeah, I prefer to shoot commercially marked "new" ammo.  I haven't found any Wolf 7.62 x 25mm HP ammo locally, but I've shot their roundball, and it works fine.  I really like the S&B, but it's gotten a little rare lately, perhaps because the exchange rate fell off for awhile.  Now that the exchange rate is better against the Euro and other currancies, then maybe I'll find more S&B again.
