Century Arms had a special. Yugo 1950's 8mm ammo 900 rounds for 49.xx. Don't forget the free shipping if you order over 500 dollars. Hence 11 cases. Approximately $549.xx

9900 rnds.

Correct. Full Auto 1919a4 in 8mm. I'll try to save some of the ammo for bulletfest but it probably won't last that long.

My very first thought on hearing 9900 rounds of 8mm was that he must have a MG34/42, but then I read the 1919A4 in 8mm.

In any event:

Damn, it isn't as impressive as I thought it would be. I'll have to order more next time it is on sale.
Some sort of 'free' bayonet too...
Here are a few photos.

Where UPS dropped it off.



Loaded up on the cart to take inside.



Stacked. Only 11 were with this shipment. The other 3 (1 in box) were already there waiting for friends. I'll have to move the ones blocking my 7.62x51 ammo.

My hate for you is surpassed only by the hate your ups guy feels for you.

I only ordered 210 lbs of ammo today. [3 cases of SA 7.62] =2,940 more rounds. I have a line on some 55grain 193 so I'm holding some money back for a couple K of that.

If you're anywhere near a commercial area they'll probably divert a small freight truck so it won't be your regular driver. Atleast, that's how they always have done it when I order bulky stuff. I'm about 10 miles from a UPS hub though.

Regardless, help him and offer him a glass of water afterwards. They don't see a whole lot of little kindnesses.


EDIT: Seems I was late...
