Not on website. Call their toll free number and ask. 250 rd tin, 1950's Bulgarian surplus..$45 per tin..Get it for the stripper clips, I hear they are very good strippers for Mosins and SVTs.

Here is a thread with review and pictures:

You know it could be $41..Was not really caring about price did not pay attention..Just need more good clips..I have 10 good Hungarian/ Russian clips and 40 crapp knock offs.With the right clips my SVT and Mosins can deliver pretty good sustain fire..

those are good clips

It's those, the hungarian ones, russian stamped ones, or the finnish ones with wings

I ordered some last week and they were $41.00 a can + shipping. I hope it is the same as the stuff century had. Here is a pic of the stuff I got from Century. It looks like the key to it having stripper clips is the word "TEHEKHHKW" on the cans.

I ordered some from SOG last week, was supposed to arrive the day before I left for vacation... :( It arrived as I was boarding the plane, so on Tuesday, I'll open it up, and report back, what I find.

BTW, it was 39.95 for 250 rounds, on 5 round clips. + shipping (and it was ~$8/tin for shipping to Silicon Valley in the quantity I ordered).

They don't care about steel case or steel core ammo..

Nor does NFS lands provided you are not shooting up trees or signs. BLM land varies with region and local......

I shoot it at Lytle Creek.

I got the 500 rds I ordered from SOG today and it was the same as I got from Century. Greenspartan, dont feel bad because 1/2 of it is for my brother who is in Germany. I have been stocking up on surplus ammo for the last 2 - 3 years because what I saw posted on this site and the FAL files. I have alot of the Czech silver tip and Hungarian light ball in 7.62x54R in the stash.:cool2:

I got my shipment the other day...

Now if I can get the silly things open... so far, broken tab, and chisel and hammering have produced nothing, more than me thinking I don't want to "pound on the ammo can - any harder" :D Maybe I'll try drilling next.

use your mosin screwdriver

09-05-2007, 4:13 PM
heh... now you tell me!

I ended up with alot of carefully placed hits with the chisel, bending the metal can, heavy gauge bolt cutters, and a nice bit of cursing and blood droplets (should have worn gloves while bending the sheet metal).

btw, the headstamp says "3" "10" "53" - is this Bulgarian Light?

Is there any markings on the stripper clips? These should all be light ball ammo.

Only marking on the clips is the number "10"

pull on that tab with a pair of pliers, it should start peeling off. Work your way around and pull the whole side panel off. I opened one of mine yesterday. The stripper clips and the ammo have some oil or cosmo on them. Looks like you'll have to do lots of cleaning before firing this stuff.

I dunno... somehow hitting a box full of ammo, full force, just seemed WRONG...

Mama never prepared me for times like that! :D

Anyway, as noted, I got the crazy thing open. Mainly due to the 24" bolt cutter I have! :D

Well doing a bit of research it seems the "10" is a county code, that does mean Bulgarian. http://www.7.62x54r.net/MosinID/MosinAmmo.htm

"53" is supposed to be date of manufacture. However, this note included in the ammo can is interesting, as it shows 1967, maybe thats when the loose ammo was packed into the ammo can, on the clips.

Still no idea, what the "3" on the case means though.

Glad to hear it... but the chisel route IS kinda......creepy feeling the first couple of hits...especially on a new kind of tim you've never opened before...wondering if you're anywhere close to a primer or even if you have tips up or down; it IS unnerving but once you've found the groove for each manufac. can then its easy as....BANG:eek:...I mean easy as pie;)

my girlfriend is bulgarian.

she says the "N NATR. TEMEKNNKN" part translates to: "In Cart. Little Tin Cans"

that's the literal. In other words, yes, "In Cartridge Clips". So if you see that, those rounds are on stripper clips.

other than that the obvious, 7.62 caliber, 250 pieces.

be careful though, i have a lot of bulgarian and it is loaded HOT HOT HOT.

I've been working my way through opening all my cans as well... (noting that the first can I opened on the side with the ammo sitting next to the metal sidewall vs.. the other side, that had a wooden spacer and cardboard - I'm now hitting the right side without fear! :D)

Anyway, yeah, my ammo is a little oily as well... Do we really need to worry about it? I've only ever cleaned the Mosin's not the ammo before.

Came to this thread late, but still got in on the deal and received several cans with bulgy on strippers yesterday for $40.75 each + shipping.

Since then SOG has just raised the price to $44 and change per can, glad I jumped in on the deal last week.

do i need to clean my rifle after every firing with this ammo?

Yes. All that is necessary is that you dip a couple of patches (3-4 total) in water before you put them on your cleaning rod or attach them to a pull through cord and put it through the bore/barrel. The corrosive ammunition leaves a deposit that is of a similar structure to table salt; water dissolves this. If you do not, rust will be attracted to it. After you put the water-soaked patches through, clean as you normally would.

Got a lot of the dark Bulgarian clips in my first SOG order received last week.

I ordered another several tins that arrived today, haven't checked it all, but at least one tin in this new bunch has arrow/triangle Izhevsk strippers, I couldn't be happier with this stuff. There's nothing like a good Russian stripper :cool:

All of mine are in the silver/galvanized or whatever tins, I haven't received any of the green ones some of you have received.
