Default SGAmmo.com has more of that "De-milled" 7.62x39

Enjoy:
http://sgammo.com/catalog/rifle-ammunition/762x39

500 rounds for $125, said there were 610 lots in stock when I checked.

So I guess this answers the question somebody posted about why we don't see tons of surplus x39 here in the states. We do, it's this stuff.

I am gonna try them, 436 left after I just placed my order.

I wonder how well that Berrys plated bullet does going that fast? Do you think they down-loaded them a little to keep the plating on the bullet?

I just got a box of 124 grain .311 Xtreme plated bullets to load some 7.62x39. I have read that people have push them to 2100-2200 fps with good results but thats still slower than these should go.

Not for SHTF or defense.. Range ammo only..

". We test fired some of this ammo and the blunter projectile did lead to 1-2 jams per 30 round magazine in a Chinese Mak-90. We do not guarantee that this ammo will feed flawlessly, if you buy this ammo expect some jams and minor feeding"

That's kind of deal breaker for me. I'd rather shoot steel case and have it run smooth.

While I haven't shot this stuff, that is exactly why I will not buy any. However, last time this stuff came around there were a lot of guys on this forum that said they have very little, if any, trouble with these rounds.

Edit:
And if nothing else, this stuff allows you to actually shoot your rifles, and save the better ammo for your stockpile. Fact is that this stuff is cheaper than even TulAmmo... which shoots like crap.

If you do the math it is 3-6% that didn't feed in a Chinese semi-auto. I have not doubt that my sks will feed just fine, if I run into 15 failures to feed out of the 500 especially when I am expecting it I am a-ok with that for this price. I am saving this stuff for when they finally do outlaw internet sales. Hopefully I never have to use it.

i did some research on Berry' website on that 123 grain bullet, MAX 1900 ft per second before the copper jacket will shed off...IMO..thats too slow for a gas operated gun and having not enough gas pressure will cause the bolt to short cycle causing FTF and FTE...normal FPS is 2200 to 2400.

I'm still holding out for Golden Tiger. P.S. I'm willing to pay near premium for Golden Tiger x39 ammo, just an FYI haha.

This is not good news. I picked one case of this up to try after seeing some positive reviews on another site.

I'm the opposite, just got back from the range after shooting Tulammo, I'd rather go back to this stuff. Tulammo had lots of primer problems, some ejection problems. But the demilled stuff shot fine last time, no problems after 250 rds. It's just corrosive, which is why I switched away.

Fired 100's of rounds of this out of multiple sks's and still no misfires. No more dirty than wolf except you have to wash some salt out.

Some of us dont have the luxury of shooting our steel ammo at the local range

Wolf is dirty as hell. This stuff is cheap shooting fun, take it for what it's worth. 125 for 500 extra back up rounds is awesome. Guys ammo bills are attached to "high capacity rebuild mags" that bill will probably pass making online sales and non 01 gun dealers prohibited from selling ammo. I won't need to shoot this stuff for a while but with the bills that are proposed right now, damn right I bought some. Prepare for the worst. Just hoping my cmp orders go through before any legislation.
