I have lots of the 7.62 battle packs w/ 140 rounds of ammo in them...

I just found one at the bottom of a pile of them that is somewhat different...

It is thinner than the regular battle packs, and it has 8 boxes in it instead of seven...

The labeling has come off over the years so I have no idea what is in there w/o opening it...

It is the same color and material pack that the regular 308 comes in... I believe the .223 packs have 200 rounds? 8 boxes would not equal that...

Any ideas fellas?

The SA 5.56 battle packs I used to own had 300 rounds in them, 10 boxes of 30 rounds per battlepack.

Ok... I thought it was quite a bit more than the 7.62 packs... That still bears the question...

What is in this mysterious battle pack?

Eight 25rnd boxes of 7.62x39 South African...I win the prize

My guess would be 7.62x39 as well. If there is 8 boxes in it. 10 boxes would be .223.

well i opened the battle pack...

lo and behold what do i find...

400 rounds of Hirtenberger L7A1 +P+ 9mm ammo

I have absolutely no idea where this came from... I guess i picked it up as S.A. back during the day....

This stuff runs like a raped ape in my F gun.

Alpo or Nine Lives?


Seriously, I would love to find a forgotten stash of 9mm right now.

I'm excited, I'm about to leave and buy some ammo off a guy from Craigslist:

"four 200rd sealed plastic sleeves of .308 ammo for $60 each."


Who says "plastic sleeves"? He says he thought they were SA but obviously hasn't been following whats going
on with ammo lately. I'll also pick up the 500 rds of 762x39 for $100 if he has it, that'll be good bartering ammo.
