cool, how much do you get it for. I found a place with it for 5.95/30rds, is that a good deal on it?

I too have been curious about this ammo. Is it steel or brass cased? any type of yucky polymer coating? Corrosive?

Is it M193 spec or M855 (SS109)


$5.95 for 30rds sounds OK. Not spectacular, but OK

Let me guess panzer, SOG?:D I think they have some cheap 7.62x54 too (non-corrosive yellow tip). I got some of the Guatemalan from them too.

M193, 55 gr. brassed cased ammo. Got some from Century and AIM, it was around 260ish a case of 1200 rounds. But that was 6 months ago, prices hace risen since then.

SOG? nope, saw it on AIM. and since I might be getting a Mosin, and my roomie a Mauser from them, I kinda figured I would just keep ordering :D

edit: stevie, it says the cases are 1560 rounds. 1200 would cost 238 + shipping+ tax, and a case would be 309 + tax/shipping

The Guat is good stuff. Smells kinda funny and there is a bit of corrosion on some of the brass. But it always goes bang.

Widner's (http://www.wideners.com/itemdetail.cfm?item_id=6846&dir=278|282) has the unprimed brass at $89/1000. They say the flash hole is smaller than american brass(am assuming m193 or mil std) and smaller flash hole produces greater accuracy. Is this true? is it more accurate?
