I found this in Shotgun News under the J&G Sales ad.

"7.62x54R Match quality 148 grain FMJ Brase case"
340 rounds for $38.59

Does not say if it is non corrosive. This seem very inexpensive. Is this good ammo?

I like it, the ammo that they have is 7.62x54R surplus FMJ, 440 rd in sealed tins. It is made in Albania and is corrosive ammo. I was up thier about 3 weeks ago and bought some, it works good in my Mosin Nagant rifles, a lot better than the Czech Silver Tip ammo my bolts tend to stick with the Czech ammo. Check out thier web site www.jgsales.com/

Thanks guys! I do hundreds of rounds a week so the cheeper the better. I have not shoot corossive ammo before though. Will this type of ammo rust away my gun? If I clean it right away will it be ok?

After polishing the chamber on my MN 91/30 I've had no problems shooting the Czech 147gr Silvertip ammo. In my rifle it's very accurate and cheap. Now, the claim is that's it's non-corrosive. I usually bring a can of "breakfree" to the range and spray the bore and bolt after shooting. I've left it in the closet for a few days before cleaning and have had no problems.

Water is what cleans corrosive salts.

I use Sweets 762 for the corrosive cleanup, then normal oil.

I'm also in Weld County. Maybe we can get together and shoot. My buddies and I go just about every week.
