I just bought the bulgarian from aim a little while ago. It seemed ok to me. I can't say if it's corrosive or not though.

I was under the impression that all of the surplus ammo was corrosive. Not a huge deal...just run some patches down with windex on them...it dissolves the salts.

$0.50+ per bullet non-corrosive or $0.18 per bullet for surplus...I can take 5 mins and windex patch my $100 Mosin.

I've purchased from AIM...pretty hassle free. unfortunately the Hungarian Light ball has doubled in price in a year:(

It's good if you like bruised shoulders. That stuff kicks like a mule.

Almost any eastern block surplus 7.62x54R will be corrosive... it is no biggie.

It is also almost all steel core... THAT may be a problem depending on where you are shooting.

You gotta hold the gun properly (on your pectoral)

That surplus stuff is great for just in case. Always good to have an extra couple thousand rounds for your rifle.

I have great luck with AIM's hungarian light ball in my m39.

Don't forget to ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS double check your bore the day after you clean from using corrosive ammo. If you miss a little bit, you can have a big problem.

Check out Wideners. They have the heavy ball bulgarian at a good price. Good stuff if you enjoy recoil!

How much is shipping to CA on the Bulgy from Widners. Anyone in the bay area want to split the shipping on 2-3 cases each person?

1/2 the price from the local stores or range prices. I tested every single round with a magnet.. all great!

ive shot that ammo, infact i bought 400 rounds of it from the ontario gun show. it uses .308 dia bullets, so its very sloppy, not accurate at all! and the brass cases are berdan primed, cant be reloaded. but its ok for plinking i guess.

Just hold you gun properly (in the pocket) and after awhile of shooting, you get used to it.

As for commercial stuff, BrownBear isnt the best accuracy wise but goes bang everytime in my mosin. If you want commercial stuff, use Wolf imo. The Bulgarian Heavy Ball from aimsurplus is good but the Hungarian stuff is top notch. My best groupings in my m91/30 is 2'' at 100 yards using Hungarian LB. If you have the money, just buy a bunch of Hungarian because the supply of that stuff is harder to find.

The Brown Bear I got is olive drab! I like that. I have a weird sense of humor. It tickles me fancy.

sorry, didnt mean to give you bad news. just plink with it, and have fun.

as for ammo loaded with proper .311 dia bullets, so far, the only one that i have used is winchester sp ammo from big 5, and its pretty accurate! but its over $1 per round.

not even the Lapua Naturalis lead free x54R ammo i bought use .311, to my disappointment, they were .308 as well, and not very accurate.

never used wolf, so i dont know what bullets those use.

thats why i reload my own x54R now.

I'd just slap down the extra bucks to get some wolf ammo. It's dirty as hell but its non-corrosive so clean up is still relatively simple. I've bought some off of sportsman's guide and they have it at a decent price and you don't have to buy 5 million round at a time. Plus with some of that corrosive ammo, it's said that it could cause the bore to rust in 30 minutes if not cleaned promptly.
