I'm not sure how often deals like this pop up, but SGammo is selling 300/600 count russian surplus with period stripper clips.

Sgammo refuses to comply with SF, Oak, LA local ordinance and prefers to not sell to you if you live in one of those places.

69.99 for 440 spam can is a good deal. i wonder how much shipping is?

True, but if you want a bunch of essentially free clips this is your best bet.

I bought the stripper clips one. Should arrive next week. Shipping was $25 for 2 300 cans

That's a good deal...$150 shipped for 600 rounds, which includes 120 Mosin stippers!

Sell the stippers 2 for a $1.00 and your net is only about $0.15/rd :)

You'd have no problem selling them, most of the aftermarket stripper clips are horrible.

It seems that the 7.62x54R is becoming the 7.62x39 in terms of surplus ammo sales that is going up and up until it dries out of course. Some really great deals out there on this, kinda is forcing me to get a Mosin or Vepr or build a PSL.

Kind of ugly looking ammo, even for 7.62x54 surplus. Hope it shoots OK. Looks a bit corroded.

Incidentally, I get 440 rounds for $35 shipped. Because I'm reloading it with my own cast boolits. ;)

want some but with nowhere in socal to shoot it (besides going out to BLM) it would just sit unused for a while....

would like to have real stripper clips though, even just 1 to 2 to help reload the mosin for when i do take it out and don't have to hand load each round.

P2K does have 2 rules. "No .50 BMG, no armor piercing!" :D

I got a corner open with a die grinder & cutoff wheel then used a prybar to lift the top a bit at a time. PITA.

I used a chisel and a hammer ad mine came out lookin like I shot them open and ya and the two rules are right but they def don't have a problem with the mosin I've seen sooooo many empty cases laying on the ground

The steel core x54R isn't true "armor piercing." Asked someone who'd fired both & while the standard light ball will tear some stuff up the true AP goes right through an engine cylinder head.:D

Love shooting the M38 indoors! :rofl2:

Ya that's a loud rifle to shoot indoors the whole range stops instantly and looks around
