Thanks for the tip. Anybody else unable to log in to the century site since they switched over to the new .biz site? I just don't understand how this could be the last 8mm ever . . . there's gotta be billions of the stuff in europe. :confused:

.... just don't understand how this could be the last 8mm ever . . . there's gotta be billions of the stuff in europe. :confused:


To quote the rep at Century:


says that the reason that this may be some of the last available is because many countries are being coerced into signing that UN order banning sales of guns, ammo and other surplus military equipment. Sounds like eastern Europe and the Balkans are going to toe the line with the UN. Look for SKSs to disappear, too.


And then take a look at this link that DRH posted on another thread and you will start too see why imported ammo is drying up...with the help of our tax dollars no less!

It is best to call it in as the supply is running looooowwww. They only had 500,000 rnds or 830 +/- cases. Average order so far was stated at 20 cases this morning with lots of guys buying 30-40 cases. The minimum order seemed to be 10 cases as that qualifies for free shipping. Bottomline, with those kind of numbers it only takes 40 order or so for the whole stock to be sold out.

So call.

you got me scared so I went ahead and bought 3000 rounds of 7.62x54R...guess it never hurts to have LOTS of ammo. Now I just need to get a Dragunov.

The 8mm is sold out, half a million rounds only lasted 1 day. The belt fed guns sure are hungry.:D

Centuryís customer service told me 8mm was sold out on Wed. However, I found this item appears on their web site on Thu evening. Their new web site supposes to have live inventory. I ordered 1,800 rounds. Letís see.

Several of the Balkan states are actually looking at backing out of the EU because they are putting more into it than they are getting out...
