View Full Version : Novosibirsk "Pistol Cartridges" ammo. Beware!

Today I went shooting with two trial boxes of that ammo. 100 rds in total. The first box went through just fine. No issues. The second.... had FIVE FTE's.... three in one magazine... in a Sig. :eek: YOU SНITTIN ME ?! That said, a box of brown bear and another box of toolammo shot well. So no, not all ammo from Russia seems to be bad.

if you're weapon doesn't function well with cheap ammo, you may be in trouble when SHTF and all the good stuff are gone.

you really can't be too picky if you're paying for cheap ammo. although i've had good experiences when using them on my ria.

That's the thing. The gun does not chew only this one box.... The rest is fine.
